Well life never seems to get dull around here. I am being ID'd..
ID = Infectious disease
Turns out my "issue" from my last post has become a larger pain in the you know what than I expected.
A trip to emergency last night and 4 different doctors "investigating" the issue turned up nothing but confusion... It was just like Grey's Anatomy. Students hovering around learning....the resident doctor, the chief resident AND the OBGYN on call all fascinated by my "issue"
I should say "issues" as it is now 3 separate cases down there.
So, they chose to discharge me instead of admitting me and I just got the phone call from the Infectious disease department to schedule an appointment for tomorrow. They are treating it as urgent (yay!) but there are many what ifs....
See.... a lump has popped up and the word "biopsy" was thrown around last night... funny, it was so casual for them to say, yet I was freaking out at the thought of a needle going in there!!
I was sent home with some Tylenol 3's and after a quick soak in the tub, I managed a glorious 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. The first full night in almost a month.
Today I am limited to sitting and shifting. Frozen Maxi Pads are stacked in the freezer (the docs loved that idea! Thanks to the birthing unit in Calgary for that lovely tip! It truly helps anytime soreness down there comes about!)
The good news is the babies are just fine! The monitor showed them having their usual party in my belly and heart rates were perfect. Tim and Cole are waiting on me hand and foot and my mother in law dropped off some fresh veggies and cookies.... so far so good. This may be my wake up call to slow right down...sometimes I need a direct hit in a very uncomfortable way for me to slow down!
I will keep you posted! Let's hope this is just some crazy hormonal pregnancy experience that I can laugh at one day!
