As many as you know I had postpartum preeclampsia I almost lost my life, not only do I feel my life was becoming in jeopardy with my drs at the end of my pregnancy which resulted in a emergency c section , but that very scary night August 17th my whole life changed I held on to my phone with 911 dialed but never hit send, while trying to pack a bag for my 4 day old baby crying begging God why, God please don't let me die I'm not ready! I couldn't stop throwing up, pounding head ache, blood pressure rising, losing vision. I got scared and
I placed my daughter in her car seat and could hardly see and felt like I was gonna faint. Drove to my moms ( yes I know not safe) and handed her my daughter hugged her and said I love you and good bye and as well as my mom, My uncle drove me to the hospital and I was rushed in the back with every nurse and dr possible in the room. Finally got told I had heart failure after birth preeclampsia among other things, was transferred to another hospital and placed in the ICU for a week, all I did was cry begging God for me not to die and all I wanted was my new born and my 4yr old son. Now here I am 8 months later still not fully out of the neck of the woods with heart medicines everyday and drs and eye surgeries to save my vision. but I thank God everyday I am here and hold my children more close. So if everyone could help donate or even spread the word of preeclampsia to others it could save a life and always Speak up to your Drs even if they think your fine and you know your not!
