First off, let me inform you that Jeremiah did NOT have his surgery yesterday. I know a lot of you have emailed me asking about that and I appreciate your concern but it's MY fault for not telling you all that the surgery was post-poned until NEXT Monday because the doctor had to leave town for an emergency.
BUT, that didn't keep me from going to the hospital yesterday! Sunday night I started feeling pretty sick to my stomach all of a sudden so I laid down and beginning at about 9pm Sunday night to about 11am on Monday morning, I threw up EVERY 30 minutes at LEAST. For the first few hours it was everything I had eaten, but after that it was just horrible painful dry heaving of all the saliva I'd swallowed. I was SO thirsty after each ralph so I started drinking ENTIRE water bottles after each time to at least HAVE something to throw up.
My good friend Dena saved my life by calling me and telling me to call my doctor. I was hoping she would just call something in for me at the pharmacy, but instead, she told me to go straight to Labor and Delivery. BLAH BLAH...I didn't want to go, but I couldn't keep a singly DROP of liquid in me and I had thrown up over 20 times in the last 12 hours so I knew I needed to go. I felt so pathetic and miserable but I drove myself to the hospital at about 12:30 and walked right in to L&D and got hooked up to a IV right away. My blood levels all came back really low so they ended up giving me some potassium in one of my THREE IV bags. I stayed in the hospital until about 8:30pm. Once I could keep some crackers down they let me go.
I hated being there and the bed was SO uncomfortable. The pillow was like AIR and I couldn't rest well, but I DID manage to get a few naps in so I guess it was worth it. I feel okay today, just weak, but I'm keeping everything in me so that's good.
Not sure why I'm having to go through so much CRAP with this pregnancy. This better be the easiest baby on earth because he's definitely making me WORK for him right now. The funny thing is that nothing I'm going through is really even pregnancy related. I'm wondering if my immune system is just SOO weak right now that I'm getting anything and everything I can to make me sick. Who knows...
So that was yesterday.
