Thanks for the heads-up, and yep, my BP has been spiking and they still haven't discharged me from the hospital. Hoping I don't wind up with chronic hypertension this time... *sigh* Thanks again!

oh then, welcome Ethan :-)
Glad you are still in the hospital being monitored. I had quite the drama postpartum after being discharged, twice back at L&D before I was readmitted. Not fun with a late preterm baby being dragged around every other day.
