Congratulations! I experienced something very similar to you in Dec. 2006. Unfortunately our son was stillborn because of placental abruption. I too came very close to losing my life and went through acute kidney failure.
Now, almost 5 years later, I'm pregnant again and will be very closely monitored.
I hope you are feeling ok and that Lee is doing well!
