I just wanted to say that I have some truly remarkable friends!!! I was taken care of soooo well by Chydelle that she has no idea how GRATEFUL and Thankful I am to have her not only as a friend, as a Soror but as my SISTER!!!
Well Saturday after much convincing, I came to Labor and Delivery because my legs had been swollen since Thursday morning, they all of a sudden swelled up and would not go down, despite me propping my feet up.
I get to L&D and they want to do a 24 hr urinalys (FYI - I only have one kidney) to check for protein in my kidneys and there was blood work done. The blood work results were not good, so I stayed over night, after staying overnight the next morning, again blood work results weren't good, and there was elevataed levels of protein in my urine. Another 24 hrs, this time my Dr. was suppose to contact my specialist in the morning so they could discuss what would happen next....
Monday morning, the nurse informs me that they are releasing me. I was alittle furious because of the test results and them treating me as if I had 2 kidneys vs 1. They told me to make a follow up appt w/ my specialist and allow him to make the determining factor (laziness on their part). They gave me a copy of my results from over the weekend and sent me on my way on complete BEDREST.
After getting home and laying down and being pissed off for about 2 hours and talking with Chydelle again, my instincts told me to contact my specialist. I call there really upset and they tell me to come right in. I go in and my blood pressure was 153/100. Everything went down hill from here. Protein levels high, I was passing ketones, feet swollen up to my thighs so bad, I couldn't walk...
My Specialist and his nurse were furious that L&D sent me home and my Dr. did an amnio to make sure Jayden's lungs were developed and sent me back to L&D... Tuesday morning the amnio results came back fine and c-section it was!!
And out came Mr. Jayden Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 12:04pm, kicking and screaming...
