Re : New mom of a preemie

Last night they discovered Kayleigh had a perforated intestine, they had to put a incision in her abdomen so anything leaking out would be able to drain. The doctors aren't sure if shes going to make it :( Please pray for her <3

Re : BP's were great...now high again?

<t>I've also still been having visual disturbances...I see a spot on/off in the center of my vision, it's just kind of sparkly and also keep seeing sparkly stars moving in my side vision. I've been having visual disturbances since like 3 months pregnant and had my eyes checked just yesterday again.....
