I can't believe another Christmas has come and gone! It seems like time is just flying by and all we do is run, run, run. We had a wonderful Christmas spent with family all around us. We had a minor set back, when I had to be taken to the ER on Saturday the 18th because of hemorrhaging after the long road that has been my miscarriage. Once the ER got me stable and the bleeding under control I was admitted to the hospital and a new much better OB came the next morning and discussed with Mike and I what our options were. I decided I just wanted this to be over, so I had a D&C a couple hours later. But before that could be done I needed to have 3 units of blood being that I had lost so much the night before. SoI got 2 units in me and went and had the surgery done. All went well, and about an hour later I was back in my room to recover. It was decided that I was doing well with the 2 units of blood and wouldn't need to have the third. My levels were still low and my white blood count was still high, so I had to stay another night to be monitored. Monday I was doing better, still tired and needed to be watched to see how I would react to the medications, so I just hung out. Everything went well and I was able to come home that evening.
With the help of my family we were able to get things done and be ready for Christmas! :) It was so fun to watch Lizzy and the joy on her face when she saw what Santa had brought her. She has had so much fun playing and terrorizing and being terrorized be her cousins!! :)
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and is looking forward to the New Year!!
