Re : hyperthyroid

<t>I haven't experienced exactly what you are describing, but I also was having extreme symptoms postpartum that pointed to thyroid dysfunction (excessive night sweats, extreme hair loss etc), so I was checked and we found a large thyroid nodule, however, thyroid function tested normal. Biopsy was n...

Goodbye Daycare, hello quarentine

<t>Well we tried to do daycare for our 11month (7.5mo CA) and while he loved it, he became very ill one too many times. We have had one Apparent Life Threatening Event that landed us in Children's hospital overnight, and the latest is a severe upper resp. infection that has lasted 1 month, 2 ear inf...

Re : Sad Anniversary

<t>Thanks ladies. Surprised after all this time I would still be missing the pregnancy. Still hurts to see other Mommas with big 9 month bellies, even a seven or eight month belly. Hopefully next time around I get to at least 7months. Thanks for the kind words. It really does ease the pain to hear f...

Sad Anniversary

<t>Today is the one year anniversary of my being rushed to the ER at 24weeks and being told I had HELLP and would need to deliver in 48 hours. We held out until 26w1d and today I have a wonderful, healthy son, but all the emotions are flooding back and it didn't help that tonight on Greys Anatomy th...

Re : My Preemie got her Swine Flu shot today

<t>Our area has a bad shortage of vaccine and the highest rate of infection in the country. My providers don't have the H1N1 vaccine yet, so we were advised to go wait in line at the county health dept. We waited for 3 hours and then they ran out! I really want to get it for my 11month old. He is in...

Re : Another underlying conditions question.

<t>Hi Angie,<br/> According to my docs, finding one of my underlying conditions and eliminating it (removal of adrenal tumor) has greatly reduced my risk of recurrence of HELLP. Of course my various specialists don't all agree that this tumor (called a pheochromacytoma) can be entirely to blame for ...

Re : No underlying condition and I am MAD!

<t>I know how you are feeling Delissa. I think jgrumet is so right, PE and HELLP really mess with your head when it comes to underlying conditions. It is the endless pursuit for me right now too. We even found one really likely underlying condition (adrenal tumor)and removed it. You would think that...

Re : My story

<t>We are thinking about having another baby, but I am so scared. On delivery day, on the MRI they also found a rare adrenal gland tumor that causes deadly high blood pressure. All the docs say it was almost certainly the cause of my HELLP and I had surgery to remove it. I felt good about this concl...
