Thanks so much for the update! Those diastolics just give me chills.
How is Kristi doing on the mag sulfate? A lot of us have felt horrible on it, so let her know that's normal (if her nurses haven't already). On the other hand, a few of our members have actually felt *better* on it, so I hope she's one of those lucky ones!
Delivery of the baby / the placenta is the *start* of the healing for Kristi, and I hope she has a quick recovery. Kristi will probably be on mag sulfate 12-24 hours after birth. She will still be at risk for up to 6 weeks post-partum, so keep those "signs and symptoms" handy.
I can only imagine how you have felt the past few days. Great job advocating for your wife and new baby boy. I hope you get a very happy ending with a healthy mama and baby very soon!
