Back in the Hospital

I was discharged Friday afternoon. Shortly after I was discharged my teeth began to really hurt. We called up a dentist who said I had a sinus infection and started on antibiotics. It was very PAINFUL. I just wanted someone to pull out all my teeth. The whole right side of my face was swollen and red. Because my teeth hurt so much I didn’t eat – plus the pain pills made me nauseated.

On Sunday I blacked out again and came back to the hospital. I couldn’t catch my breath and had a horrible headache. I was already dehydrated again – which is amazing because I only went a day or so without really eating. So I was put on oxygen and had a VERY rough night!  My O2 stats were around 89 and the nurses were in and out of my room all night long. They are treating me more aggressively this time. I had an MRI in July so they decided not to repeat that. But I got an EEG, EKG, Echocardiogram, another 8 tubes of blood, and various other tests. I’m still waiting on results from that right now. 

Jose went to the board meeting and took Malaya with him. He said it was great to see everyone at the 30th celebration. I’m so glad he was able to go and fellowship. We are looking to bring Gigi out at the end of next week. Hopefully all of my medical issues will be resolved by then and he can leave with peace to go get her. 

Thanks for your prayers. We did an ultrasound here in the hospital again just to make sure the boys were okay – and they are great. One of them has a little urine in it’s kidney though and it could make for a problem in the future. They told me it’s nothing I’ve done or nothing that I can fix. They just said that sometimes with twins – this can happen. So we just have to make sure that he doesn’t have kidney failure when he’s born.

  1. Jody,

    I just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers. I know this must be a really hard time for you.

    I also wanted to let you know that my second daughter had fluid in both of her kidneys. We did so many extra ultrasounds because of that. In the end she was fine. She had to have an ultrasound after she was born to make sure.

    I know we are far away, but if there is anything we can do for you all please let us know.
