Re : Swelling and Progression of Symptoms (edited)

Re : I think this is suspicious, but...

<t>See I do find this extremely interesting!! But with my story I had developed severe Pre-E and HELLPS but there was no history of preemie babies or Pre-E or HELLPS on either side of my family or Brandons family. Infact most of the people in both of our families didn't even really know what it was....

I'...

It took him 16 days to get back to 4 lbs 4 oz. so he was an ounce less than when he was originally born. Scott is just ov...
