Whatever the Heck This is Days 14-15

As of my last report, on Monday night, we were planning on a different test to determine both leaking and anatomy.  I was feeling really at peace with our decision...for about five minutes.

Monday night was a long hard night for me.  I had this sudden realization that I was moving from knowing and accepting that something could be true to knowing that with in that day I would be asked to know and accept that it was true.  I also had the sinking feeling in my gut (and there is no other way to describe it) that the outcome of the test would be door number 2 (no kidneys and/or bladder).

Hospital Bedrest Day 13


On the 14th, Siena was measuring in the 10th% for weight/age at 1 lb even.  Now she is in the 41.9%, estimating at 1 lb 10 oz.  Of course these things have a fairly large margin of error, but in any case she is obviously still growing.

Hospital Bedrest Day 12


Tim and the boys came and brought me to Mass today.  Caleb didn't want to wait until they got home to have lunch (he was angling for Dad to take them out), so I told him I would order tacos (what was waiting at home) and have tacos too.

Hospital Bedrest Day 11

Tim visited today by himself for most of the day, he even took me out for ice cream.  Then he went home and we had a very enlightened text conversation as you can see....

Hospital Bedrest Day 10


My parents came into town tonight for the weekend.  The plan was to have dinner and swimming with everyone at the hotel tonight, but Lucie had other plans.  Tim thought last night she might be coming down with an ear infection and considered taking her to urgent care this morning but she woke up feeling ok, so he decided not to.  Five minutes into swimming, she puked all over (not in the pool thankfully) and spiked a fever.

Hospital Bedrest Day 9


I had a bunch of visitors today and I had an abundance of choices for dessert and snacks this evening.  I ended up going with pumpkin pie from my friend Meredith with a side of ice cream from the "nutrition center" (aka kitchen full of sugary junk food).  Mmmmmmm....good food.

Hospital Bedrest Day 8


We have still been having trouble getting a good NST each day.  This is the best we could get today and this is with the nurse holding it in place for the entire time.  They can always find her, and her heart rate is strong, but she is moving around so much they just can't keep her on the monitor.  In one way, this is a good problem to have.  On the other hand, it makes watching her for signs of stress somewhat challenging!
