Thank you... actually he is a boy, our sweet son John Jr. (baby Jack)... He's doing well in the NICU; my BP is still showing a few high readings (still on two meds) but mostly normal ones... everyone is sure I will now have permanent chronic hypertension. I have been a sobbing mess worried about my baby, worried they made the wrong call and he should have been left inside me for longer, but I know he's in good hands with this NICU... he seems to be a feisty little fighter so we're praying he will be okay.
