My name is Krysti Jones, I am from Va. I suffered from Severe Preeclampsia, Hellp, & Eclampsia resulting in the death of our precious son Carson Bailey, October 30, 2003, my placenta abrupted with complete seperation, due to uncontrolled high blood pressure, I almost lost my life too, 3 minutes later getting to the hospital, and I would have died with my son. This deadly disease progressed rapidly in me. We turned around, and I became pregnant again in 2004, I developed Severe Preeclampsia again, then Gestational Diabetes shortly after, was in month 5 at onset this time, at 6 months was put in hospital until delivery. He pushed me to make it to 34 weeks, did amnio, and delivered her by c-section. She was kept in NICU for 5 days, and we were released together, I remained in the hospital all this time, due to wound infection. Keiana Shay is 9 months old. She has food allergies, food intoleraces, reflux, and allergic eosinophilic gastropathy. She has not been able to start any solids yet, she has been allergic to everything we have given her, she is on Elecare formula, after switching numerous times. She also is on alot of medications for these problems, in which alot of what they tried on her she was also allergic to those. We have had a time with her, but she is more than worth it, she is our miracle child. We also have a son, Cody Tyler, he was born early, he is 13. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful foundation, and I will do my best to reach out to each, and everyone in Va. Let's get this state a rocking!! We together can make a difference. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Email me if you need anything, I am here. I will be doing some outreach at the first of the week to see what all I can get going. I look forward to meeting, and talking with you all!!
