In the early morning hours, after several days of being sick, the nurse came into my hospital room and told us Micah would be born that day. My levels were dropping fast. It wasn't the lupus causing the problems, it was HELP syndrome. I had spent several days hospitalized in Abilene when they told me they were going to have to care flight me to Harris in Ft. Worth. We were buying time, taking steroid shots, trying to rule out the possibility that it was the lupus, but it was not. My body was breaking down fast and Micah was in trouble too.
|My first time seeing Micah. I had to wait for the MAG drip to stop before I was allowed|
down to the NICU. I was so scared and so excited to meet my daughter.
