Thank you for visiting my 2018  Promise  Walk for Preeclampsia fundraising page.

I was diagnosed at 22 weeks  and 2 days with severe preeclampsia. I went to the hospital the evening of  February 4th, 2018 just not feeling right. My blood pressure was sky high, liver  enzymes were high and my platelets were dropping quickly. They admitted me that  night and told me I would stay until I delivered my sweet Oliver. I was on bp  meds and a few other things to help normalize things and keep Oliver in as long  as we could. Things were up and down for 2 weeks but on February 16th, 2018 they  took me for a ultrasound and Oliver wasn’t moving . About 30 mins of trying to  get him to move the dr. came in and said we have to get him out as soon as  possible. They rushed me straight to surgery and did an emergency c-section.  They had to rush Oliver to another room and get him on a breathing machine and  stabilize him as much as they could to transport him to nicu. I got to meet him  for about 1 minute before he left and they even allowed me to touch his little  hand through his incubator, I couldn’t believe how tiny my little guy was. My  husband went and stayed with Oliver while I was trying to recover some from the  c-section and being on magnesium. I finally was up to going and seeing Oliver,  so they gave me a pass on Sunday February 18th to go to nicu and visit. When I  went things were starting to become very touch and go. I decided I wanted to be  released from the hospital and go back and stay with my husband and Oliver. That  was one of the hardest but yet best moments of my life. I will never forget the  time I got to spend with him. He was absolutely the most perfect little baby  I’ve ever seen. Early Monday February 19th, 2018 they asked if I would like to  hold him for the first time and of coarse I said yes. I held my little Oliver  through it all. He was such a strong little guy. I will forever miss him and my  life will never be the same. I think of him every second of every  day.
