Sorry for the absence. Things just are just crazy at the minute and I barely remember it. DH told me he stole my phone and told you I was in hospital but I don't know what he said yet.
I'm completely exhausted and still a little dazed. I remember going to bed feeling sick with a headache and feeling drained next thing I know paramedics were shaking me in the ambulance. Don't really remember much after except waking up last night coherent and feeling better than I have in a while.
I'm 2 seconds from falling asleep. Hopefully will later. Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!
Mama! - Glad to see you back. We were all really worried about you. You must promise to look after yourself. Overcaste here today. Just chilling as both DH and I are still off, although I have to work an odd day tomorrow, its an AdHoc day for BUPA, so too well paid to refuse. Surprise, surprise, a local girl came calling for Mike this morning! He was really embarrassed, but went off with her anyway.
Trips- it was sweet, but as soon as his other mates turned up wanting to make a camp, he dropped her like a stone and went off with them - This demonstrates that he and his mates are quite immature for their age and building a base in the woods is more important than girls atm
Trips - I'm still until I boost my immune system as the anemia weakened it. They found out my body wasn't absorbing the oral iron properly and that's why my levels and T1's fluid was up and down. My hb level had dropped to 7.2 plus my heart rate spes up. Blood tranfusion was a last resort so they tried my on an iron IV which last 5 hours - I was still cold. I was admitted Weds morning and the Iron on Sat morning. I woke up fully. They still don't know why DH couldn't wake me though.
They said if DH hadn't called 911 we could have lost the babies as their heart rate had dropped and I could have gone into renal failure. As it stands; my levels are increasing and so is T1's fluids and their heart rates are strong and fast
Bubby - I promise! Xx
Shabs - Sounds so heartbreaking! My condolences to all the family! Xx
Just realised half of that made no sense! Basically iron was dangerously low and it and if IV didn't work I would have had to have a transfusion. But it seems to be working as I'm feeling better than I have in months. I'm on oxygen as I'm still breathless and light headed and I'm on fluids and vitamins to help my immune system. Both babies are healthy and fine. I'm in until my symptoms disappear and my heart rate lowers a little more... and can walk without dizziness.
Shabs, today must have been so very hard for you, for them. Its a place you don`t want to be in...............makes me think back to the day we buried Matthew.............a terrible terrible day. How did you ever survive it twice, oh my friend <<hug>> xx
Feeling so much better today, I'm off oxygen etc and I'm being discharged tomorrow with a note from my consultant, midwife and GP stating that I am able to fly. Before, I was admitted we had decided that I will go spend some weeks in Russia with my brother and his partner, at their home per their request. K & A will be staying home with DH and dad but the twins will be coming with me as they're still BF but my brother and Petrov will be looking after them.
Chops - enjoy San Fran!! Hope those 3 days go slowly for you! x
Shabs - Hope the rain clears and some lovely weather heads your way.
Boring! Getting very fed up, kids bored senseless.............long long holidays. Mama..........being much older and therefore wiser why are you flying off anywhere? This pregnancy has been such a rollercoaster, its a risk you needn`t be taking. You really really should be home, resting, how many weeks are you now? 22/23? Please think very carefully.
I can't be home and rest. It's impossible. I need to get away, I have to before I go insane. My consultant would have never signed my note if it wasn't safe to fly and we've all discussed this at length, gone over every situation and scenario possible. My brother is also a nurse and starts midwifery training next year so I'm in good hands and I'll back way before my due date. I'll be 25+4 when I fly. Already spoke to airline and I'm allowed providing I'm not over 32 weeks on my return and have a note.
Hey mama. Glad you are feeling better. I hope the trip does give you much needed rest. It's hard having 4 young children to chase around after when fit and well, let alone pregnant and with twins. You know we will all still worry about you anyway.
In good news here. Work have finally dismissed me! The guy doing my hearing tried so hard to keep my job for me - he offered me the chance for a month to quite literally come in when I felt like it, for just an hour if that's all I felt I could so. Ring up on the day and say I'm coming in! Un-bloody-believable. The people I've known who could genuinely have benefited from that kind of compassion... My union rep said he's never known that be offered ever.
Anyway, it was quite hard wording a rebuff so he wasn't offended but we did manage it. And then as there was nothing else that he could offer me to help, he apologised and told me in the nicest way that I was dismissed due to medical inefficiency. So I am now a sahm and have not felt more relieved in a long time.
Mama- maybe a break is what you need, I can understand why you feel you need to go. soks - I'm glad that its finally sorted and you have the result you were looking for , enjoy being a sahm. Trips - can you get away for any break at all? Shabs- it must have been so hard for all of you, such a sad time
Sok - This PG is taxing and exhausting. I'd do anything for a normal PG! I'm glad that you have things sorted and now do what you want to do without the worry of all that. Enjoy your new future
Bubby - I miss my brother. Really can't wait to hug him! On a sad note, I'll not be home for K's birthday and twins will celebrate there's in Russia but DH is planning on taking K and A to Germany for his b.day.
Trips - How do you feel about being in a crowded space with 2 "I don't wanna sit still" 48 week old boys? Haha. I'm hoping they sleep. Weather is supposed to be sunny/rainy but temps in 20s. I'd take you in my suitcase if I could!
My brother is a serious man worse than my dad abd DH. He has no problem cursing at me in Russian and scolding me like a child if I move plus Petrov is his spy and will tattle on me! I love them
