Re : PE symptoms with normal BPs

<t>Sorry that you've had to deal with this so early in thi pregnancy - congrats on passing 4 weeks of bedrest.

Re : Ethan's having surgery

Soon after they did an MRI to see if there were any other vessels needing to be clipped so that they wouldn't also rupture. They never mentioned that the original clips would be a problem. No...

Re : Questions unanswered...(long)

<t>It's really hard to answer your queston without more details about the situation. It's possible that he was fine until the shift change and at that time his heart rate dropped.
