Well I just got back from my appointment, everythings good, bp normal, babys growing right on, I haven't gained anything since last week. yay. still dont have my results from the swab?? Thats kinda annoying. I have an update on fil..
Well they took him to the bigger hospital this morning and did tests on him, turns out he has a hole in his heart from the stroke. And then they sent him home (?? i dont know why?) Well when he got home he started feeling numbness again so my mil rushed him back to the local hospital and I believe they are flying him right now to san francisco for surgery. Looks like we are going to fly up there. I just got back from my 37 week appointment and mw said its fine (the flight is only as hour) as long as I stay hydrated and have dh hold Amelia the majority of the time. She said she didn't think she needed to check me, so she didn't, which Im glad about. She did give me a copy of my records just in case Anyway, thanks everyone for your prayers and thoughts, this has been sooo tough on Ryan. His dad is a cancer survivor so he has already almost lost him before! Please keep praying.
Hooray for a good appt. That is weird they don't have the GBS results.
I hope your FIL is doing okay. It sounds like the hole in his heart allowed a blood clot to travel through and up to his brain. The surgery to correct this (if it's the surgery I'm thinking of) is actually pretty mild and he'll only need to spend a day or two in the hospital. They can go in through the groin (like an angioplasty) and open a patch inside the heart to seal up the hole. We used to do these at the hospital I worked at a couple years ago. Folks did really well with it and again, it's not major surgery at all. I hope that's all your FIL is facing.
Cardiac nursing is my passion. Feel free to PM or email me if you have questions.
I'll pray and send wishes for a speedy recovery and safe travels for you.
Thank you so much for that info! Its very encouraging. I dont really know enough to have any further questions, but if I think of any, I know who to ask! thanks again so much.
So sorry about your FIL. I hope the surgery goes smoothly and that your flight goes smoothly as well. I wonder if anyone has every given birth on a plane? Just kidding!! Please KUP when you can.
My dh would just DIE!! My mw said I just need to stay really hydrated etc and that the worry is the changing in pressure that can cause your water to break, so If I am drinking WHILE flying it should help regulate the pressure or something like that. Scary! Thank God its a short flight.
So glad your appt went well. Wishing you safe travels and good thoughts for your family.
We bought our tickets today, dh couldn't get any time before the 6th, so were flying out Thursday morning and coming back Tuesday the 12th. I will be flying at 38 weeks!! I am actually not concerned about it in the slightest. Not only do I think I will have an at least 40 week baby, I think whatever I lost of my plug the other day is grown back cause my discharge was really chunky/watery for a couples days, but now its really thick and bright white, like post ovulation. Anyway at least this little trip will help the time go by quicker then sitting at home doing nothing! Two days after we get back my sister is getting here from Michigan, so that is exciting too. I will have the internet there so I will be able to get on and let keep everyone posted. Thanks for all the prayers, my poor poor dh is having such a rough time, and there is really nothing I can do to comfort him. Anyway, I do have my next appointment the day before we leave, so hopefully nothing happens between now and then
