Fill in the blank with just about any verb and I think it describes where I’m at right now. The last few days have been extremely rough. Having blacked out 3 times since I was discharged on Friday and having a horrible headache that not even my narcotics can get rid of – I have spent the majority of the time in tears. I gave up the ghost and went to the hospital last night and spent a good part of the night in the ER where my OB doctor happened to be on call – which NEVER happens at night. I managed to escape early this morning without being admitted as he told me once he does – I’m in for good. However our encounter was not a very good one. We got into a discussion about my activities and health and did not see eye to eye – that’s for sure. As much as I was glad to see him at first- when it was over – I wished I would have just seen whoever was on call.
There’s not much more they can do for me while I’m pregnant. I feel like I’m beginning to dig a hole I can’t get out of. CUE THE VIOLINS – – I don’t sleep, I can’t eat, I have bruises from my falls, my head pounds, its a struggle just to breathe and lay comfortably and I’m just not sure I can ______ anymore.
My blog is a little bit of a roller coaster is it not? I’m laughing one minute and sad the next! I’m blaming it on hormones! I think I will wait to blog again once the Hills and Curves aren’t so steep and sharp!
Thanks for your prayers and support. We love you!

I’m so sorry. I know this is so rough right now. I can’t imagine having all the extra problems on top of being pregnant. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I love you and am always praying for you.
I just found your blog, don’t know anything about you except this post. But PLEASE listen to me– I’ve had 9 children, I don’t know what number pregnancy this is for you or what health issues you have– but you must get some high-protein food products into your body immediately, I cannot stress this enough! You are definitely sounding pre-enclampsic (along with whatever else is going on with you), oh dear lady please do not delay!!
Get high-protein drink mix and force yourself to drink a double amt. every 3-4 hrs. Do not waste time with vegetables, fruits, breads, etc. You must concentrate only on high-protein foods of whatever kind you normally eat– meat, fish, cheese, beans, nuts.

Joy sounds informed. I am so sorry — this sounds AWFUL. Praying for you all.
Jody, please don’t give up! There are two little baby boys that are counting on you. Yes, life sucks right now but in a few months life will be wonderful, just hold onto that.
I missed seeing you and your family in Haiti. It was a great trip and we are already making plans for next year’s trip.
I am praying for you and your family. I love you tons!
