|My story happened almost 4 years ago, but seems like it just happened. I was 30 weeks along when my blood pres. got very high, and I had a high sudden weight gain, I went to the hospital because I was feeling dizzy and seeing white spots, thats when they took a pee sample adn told me to go home and they would call me, when I got home, there was a message on my machine that I was to go to the hospital ASAP and be checked in, I had a lot of protein in my pee.

I had 5 bags of blood and got plasma treatments everyday for a month, I was in ICU for 2 weeks and the day befor I was to go home all of my hair fell out because of some of the meds.
