I have not been online since last Saturday and so I'm going to try typing with this new crappy IV line in on my wrist. It's the 7th one since Sunday. My arms are purple with bruises from all the abuse I've taken this week. I'm hoping to be out of here this weekend if all goes well and they can get me hydrated and breathing right. Basically I came in with a really bad back ache on the 14th. After a CT scan, chest Xray, sonogram and a sterile pee sample they found out my gall bladder was full of stones and one had irritated my pancreas causing pacreitis. I guess it's fairly common to have gall bladder problems when pregnant or after pregnancy so they weren't too shocked.
My liver enezymes and all that junk took forever to go down but finally by the 18th it was safe enough to operate although everything else was wrong. I just started a liquid diet today and before that hadn't ate since sunday morning when I had a bowl of Life Cereal. The surgery was like having a 2nd C section in a week and my body hurts so bad especially breathing. So there's the basics, and I'll post more when I can. This has really put me in a bad place and it's been hard. It''s almost like I had a baby and then had her taken away. She's been here the past week but I've been so weak and sick that I haven't touched her till tonight. My milk is totally gone so I'm hoping my OB will put me on Reglan. We'll see.
