I (Carl) left the hospital to go home and rest about 10:30, while Lala's mom stayed overnight (since we now have a private room on the delivery floor).  By the time I talked to her in the morning, she had had major problems with high blood pressure (and consequently vision abnormalities), she didn't sleep all night, the incision hurt, and she and her mom were both upset (contributing to the high blood pressure).

She sent her mom home as soon as I got in, both so that they could both sleep, and so they wouldn't make each other worried and stressed about each other.  Lala was happy to see me, and managed to calm down and rest while I found some relaxing music on the Church web site.  The nurse also gave her some medicine to lower the blood pressure.  All of that brought it down dramatically, from jaw-dropping to just fine.

She had a little food this morning, and she's off the magnesium sulfate.  If we can keep her blood pressure ok, we can go visit the kids soon, and she can be moved off of the post-op floor to a normal room.

Husbands are so good at calming us freaking-out wives down. Good work, Carl.
