Jen (skylersmomma) readmitted to hospital w/Eclampsia UPDATE 2

Saw on FB last night that Jen is in the hospital with Eclampsia and mastitis and they won't let her SO or LO stay with her and they aren't allowing her to pump because of her siezure risk with the Eclampsia. Sad

She said that her liver was/is inflamed and that her Kidneys had slowed. Her last update was 7 hours ago.

Praying for you, Jen!!

UPDATE 10/4 7:30am (PST)

Can't breastfeed for 24 hrs due to the test they ran yesterday. Sad they think the high blood pressue caused a clot in my lung and I have sum fluid in my lungs but on a good note my blood pressure is coming down. So hopefully my organs will start getting back to normal. Poor curtis is home with the baby and they weren't allowed to visit last nite and sky is just beside himself Sad I wanna cry but I can't brathe well enough too. 3

UPDATE 10/5 10:50am (PST)

thank you to all curtis's and my wonderful friends and family for your thoughts and prayers and help. Kesler and Sky are doing well. Curtis has been doing an amazing job of holding down the fort. I am feeling better my bp is down and stable and the fluid around my lungs and liver is improving. The only concern left is my kidneys.(which as of yesterday were still deteriorating)

Oh no! Eclampsia is scary stuff! Did she actually have a seizure?

and slightly less frightening, but...Mastitis AND she cant pump? OUCH!

prayers going up.

I don't think she actually had a seizure, but she said they were worried she would.

I know exactly how you are feeling. I ended up back in the hospital a few days after Julia was born with clots in both lungs. My pressure was way up because of the clots making my heart work harder and I have to be on BP medication for a couple of months. I am also on blood thinners for at least 6 months. I still get out of breath easily for now but it is such a relief to be able to breathe without pain now. It was hard being away from the baby for a whole week. But, I am back home now losing sleep and being grateful for every moment of it. Hang in there and follow orders. Prayers are with you and your loved ones.

Hi everyone thx for your thoughts and prayers, thanks janelle for updating sorry u ladies r the last to be notified.
I was admitted sunday nite with eclampsia (high bp) my organs started to fail I had problems with my liver enzimes and output aswell as fluid around my liver and lungs. I am on oxygen I have a clot in my lung but and being treated with hepren (blood thinners) I am on blood pressure meds they had my bp regulated but now that I'm off the mag sulfate my bp has gone back up but drs are playing around triing to get my bd med doses just right. Still having a bit of trouble breathing drs worry ill get phenomonia so I've had quite a few chest xrays, my heart looks good tho, there is however some concern about my kidneys still blood in them and every day seems to have more blood yesterday was a bit better for the protien in my urine also the creatine(sp?) Was a bit better. The drs r still monitoring my kidneys closely. Its hard to believe this all started out with a bad headache. I'm getting moved from the one on one nursing to the mom and babe ward which is a good sign. Smile I had a visit from curtis and thew boys yesterday it really perked my spirits. I have been pumping now that I'm not radioactive and kesler gets one feed on both breasts and I pump enough for one feeding not much milk. Left in me but the drs say that is very common when this sick. Curtis has been aamazing he has kesler at home with him ( we had to suplement formula) but he has been super daddy! And skyler has stayed my grandpa my dad and my dad takes sky home everymorning b4 school to visit with his brother and curtis. I think everyone is exhausted but hopefully we are on the mend now. Sorry if this update doesn't make a lot of sense they have me on a lot of meds. Hope u ladies r all well I will update more when I know more.

Not sure how frequently she can get on here, but a few hours ago she updated on FB...

"Drs say my kidneys should go back to near normal function!!"

when asked about going home, she replied "No not yet. They r still screwing around with meds to keep my bp down now that I'm of the mag sulfate drip. They r moving me soo I would think soon I get to go home just don't know when."

I am so glad things are looking up for you, Jen! :clappy:
