My oldest daughter Lisa, who just gave me a new grandbaby less than 4 weeks ago, suffered a seizure yesterday, cracked her head open and cracked her tailbone.  If you will remember, she had preeclampsia during her pregnancy and spent the last 5 weeks of her pregnancy in the hospital.  Well she was given blood pressure medication to take after the baby was born, and of course she thought since she had the baby it would go right back down, so she didn't take the medication.  Well it didn't, and when they took her BP after 911 was called it was 155/110, which in turned caused the seizure.
 
Please keep her in your prayers please.  I am worried sick! She is in Iowa and I am in California.  I can't go be with her as I am still struggling with recovering from my kidney surgery.  My exhusband is back there with her, and couldn't even have the courtesy to call her sister who lives near me to update me.  I am so upset right now, and its no wonder we divorced.  (Ok vent over!!)  Anyways, please keep her in your prayers, its greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you Crohns family.
 
Hugs

Gosh, Nanners, I hope your daughter is feeling better AND TAKING THE BP MEDS. Pre-eclampsia is so scary. I guess now she's past the "pre-" and into "toxemia." How's the baby doing?

Nanners,
I am adding you and your daughter to my prayer list. I hope the stress doesn't get you down. I just sent my second son off to boot camp, and was pretty down about it.....then I read this. I feel so bad for you because when its our kids going through something, we just feel so helpless. I hope your daughter and grandbaby are all good soon.
