I am posting for Crystal, as she is on her way to OKC. She was having some higher pressures and +3 pitting edema, so she went to Urgent Care, (after laying on her left side with feet elevated since lunch) as her peri is in OKC, 2hrs away. She was going to just have a fellow nurse check her bp as her machine has not been reading accurately, but the Dr ended up checking it and it was 174/104 and then subsequent readings were about the same, and a bit higher. (She has had normal pressures up until they became labile the last few days, but never over 90). So she called her peri who said get to the hospital in OKC now and don't eat or drink, because you may be delivering tonight. She is scared, but trying to stay calm. She is going to keep me posted, or her husband will if she is not able...her parents are also meeting them there. PLEASE join me in praying for her and baby Jack that they can either get her pressures under control, or that he is delivered safely and healthy. At last check he was 3lbs 12oz(last week) and she is 32 +4 today. She has not had bloodwork done, so please also pray that those values are all ok too. I will keep everyone posted. I could feel the comfort of ALOT of people praying for me, and I am hoping she can feel the calmness and comfort too. Thanks!
