I'm new to the cite, I have started research on what happend to my family and I found this cite along the way. Six months ago I delivered my beautiful baby girl by emergency c-section, I had been in the hospital for 23 days and had developed HELLP syndrom. My Little girl, Meadow, was born two months early, we spent 8 weeks in the ICN with her. So in short the best time in our lives was also the worst, I was very sick, and we worried about our baby everyday. Watching those monitors became a way of life for a while. But we have been home for 4 months and my baby girl is 15 lbs, she's very healthy, and as soon as the cold season passes we're going to get back out into the world.
Because I was hospitalized so long I lost my job and had to pay a fortune to keep insurance. Now my child can't be in a daycare setting because of her prematurity, and lung situation. She gets the synagis shot every month, and I don't take her out, fearing that she will get sick, and end up back in the hospital. I had only lived in the town we are in for about a year before my baby was born and any friendships I had started didn't really pull through the three month ordeal. I'm feeling lonely I guess, not that my daughter isn't wonderful company! I miss adult interaction, and her father is working like crazy to get us through the winter.
We had planned on a big family and are very unsure of where we're at with that, still wanting more children but knowing there is a risk this could happen again. We want to understand the risks more, and how they now apply to us.
PS Please ignore any bad spelling, I've never been a good speller
