Home

Sunflower and I are back home. This morning I jointly decided with my ob and mfm that sending me home would likely be the best thing we can do to keep my blood pressure low and me as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Being in the hospital was pretty miserable and the longer I was there, the more I was decompensating emotionally, not helped at all by the fact that I've barely slept the past two days. So the care plan is restricted activity at home, to continue with daily monitoring of blood pressure and protein at home, along with going in 3 times per week for fetal monitoring, and weekly doctor appointments. Of course if anything seems the least bit off I will be back in the hospital in a heart beat.

So we're home - happy to be here but exhausted beyond belief. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Wonderful news that you are home if thats were you feel safe and the care you are getting seems VERY thorough and organised. It's also reassuring to know that you are really are in a good zone with little sunflower's age now...so if things were to change and they want him out. Well that will be just fine too. Thinking of you so very much. Take care and FEET UP..

I'm happy to hear that your BP is lower and the tests are negative. I'm ecstatic that you are back home!! I am hoping you will get lots of rest to make up for the hospital visit and eat lots of goodies. I have a vision of you, feather slippers, a bell and bon bons (like that old commercial). LOL! Take it easy and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
