You may be familiar with the work of radio producer Myke Johns here on WABE.

However, he and his wife, Melissa, also visited StoryCorps to record a story about their infant son, Alex. During her pregnancy, Melissa was diagnosed with preeclampsia, a potentially life-threatening illness that causes dangerously high blood pressure.

A note: The acronym "NICU" refers to the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.

Melissa starts the story.
