    What is HELLP Syndrome?

    HELLP syndrome is a life-threatening pregnancy complication usually considered to be a variant of preeclampsia. Both conditions usually occur during the later stages of pregnancy, or sometimes after childbirth.
    HELLP syndrome was named by Dr. Louis Weinstein in 1982 after its characteristics:
    H (hemolysis, which is the breaking down of red blood cells),
    EL (elevated liver enzymes) and
    LP (low platelet count).

    Default Prem baby, full term baby

    I believe a lot depends on how early your prem baby was, and what the reasons were for having him/her early.

    Default Prem baby, full term baby

    Elleb... My DD is now 9yo. She amazes me everyday! She was in hospital for 3 1/2 mths then 4months at home on 100% oxygen via nasal prongs. Then we moved up north and have never looked back!
    She has had some concentration issues but is more like an absent minded professor. Got straight A's last term, a Mathematics Excellence award and a Reading Award.
    She is only little but so am I, so could be genetics! She does walk on her tip toes if bare foot but unsure why...her heels look like golf balls when flat on ground, from the repeated blood test pricks. Otherwise she is very healthy and active kid, who says the most incite-full things at times! She told me the other day to take care as I was "high risk with this baby" and she is correct!
