I'm now on dilauded and oxy, alternating for my spasm/episodes. They are calling it "epi-gastric" pain, which is classic with pre-e. The docs are watching it bc apparently it means that my liver is inflamed, and that the capsule is irritated. Whatever that means. I just know it hurts like a whore.
I got my shower in, but I look like ASS. The bags under my eyes are the same color as the bruises all over my arms. I don't have a camera on my laptop though. Sorry to disappoint. You all will just have to suffice with the horrible pic dh took of me. I'm in my hospital bed with an IV pole behind me. My phone takes horrible pics.
I got some results back, and my liver enzymes are up again. They aren't big bad scary, but they are high enough to put me back to the labs every 6 hours. One of the vials clotted (hemolyzed) before they could run the test, so they re-did the whole batch, plus 4 extras. They have now missed my veins a total of 16 times.
My BP was high enough to make a doc run in here and ask what I had done to push it up. I had just stood up to go pee and brush my teeth. My BP was 148/87. 20 minutes later it was back to 'ok'. My temp is up a little - but you all don't care about that.
Baby's HR is still awesome at 160 BPM. No ctx. My HR has been around 70 almost the entire time I've been here. I think that's the best it's ever been in my life.
I got to talk with ds for a while this afternoon. He said he misses me. That made me cry an awful lot. He is allowed to come up to visit, but my mil is a little afraid to make a 90 minute drive with him twice, just to have him be upset seeing me in a hospital bed. I look sick. There is no getting around it. He said he stole my pillow off my bed and he isn't giving it back until I come home.
I'm ok sharing my pillow with him. He can have it forever if it makes him feel a little better.
Bed rest still blows, but it's doing a good thing for this child, so I will cope. And so will you guys.
