After several years of trying and fertility treatments my little sister finally got pregnant. She is 38 weeks along and began to show signs of preeclampsia. They checked her into the hospital last night with the intention of doing a c-section. However blood test revealed that she has H.E.L.L.P. syndrome. This is a very rare and life-threatening condition affecting her blood and liver. They cannot do the c-section b/c of the risk that her blood will not clot. She is also not progressing naturally and the longer she stays pregnant the bigger the risk to her and my nephew. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers today!
