Why It’s Worth It…..

I don’t have a scanner so I had to take a picture of the ultrasound picture! But you get the point – they’re not lima beans anymore – they’re starting to look like little babies now! The nurses listened to heart tones every few hours. They are convinced it’s a boy and a girl! I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Thank you so much for all your support and for all your emails and comments! I guess it wasn’t me just being feisty – my real OB doctor (who I haven’t seen in two days) didn’t intend for me to get a PICC Line or Port. He did not agree with the doctor on call who saw me Sunday/Monday.  It was his intentions to slowly wean me off the IV’s to see what my stomach could handle and then make a decision after that. He told me he never thought about Home Health Care or anything like that  – but would certainly do whatever he thought was best for the babies.

So Far so good. I have managed to keep down everything I’ve eaten since last night. He discharged me today and has me on scheduled follow-ups every few days. He has already called to check on me. 

Now I’m just going to relax and enjoy this precious break  – because I know it could all change overnight and right back in the hospital I go – maybe for good! Both my OB and High Risk doctors believe that will eventually be my fate – but hopefully not till the end of the pregnancy.

I’m learning – trying to learn  – to LET GO – – but it’s one of those lessons that in the moment of fear and pain – doesn’t seem to sink in. I have felt almost paralyzed the last few days.  It has been so comforting to open up an email – to click on a comment – and see so many people ready to stand with me (or for me if I’m too weak). I don’t know what I’d do without you – especially during these times when I’m scared or trying to take back the reigns of control. It is one thing I will never take for granted – your encouragement and support for my family. 

Now the big question – – -WHAT TO EAT?  It’s been so long since I’ve had a really good meal……Big Mac? Arby’s Roast Beef? Maybe a little KFC? Taco Bell? YUMM…. JUST KIDDING!!!  I’m taking it VERY SLOW – – I’m having a ham sandwich for dinner – and we’ll just see how that stays down!!  I’m still a little light-headed and not quite up to par but – – One thing at a time – one step at a time.
