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.
