But I didn't.
The worst part about the ER visit by far was the lack of meals. I only had a handful of Sun chips from the vending machine during the time I was there, and that happened while the sun was still up, somewhere between 4 and 5pm. By the end of the evening I was quite weak and wobbly, and my blood sugar was all out of whack. Luckily I was not in too bad of shape the next day, which was yesterday. Usually I get wicked headaches from not eating all day like that, but because I've been keeping my sugar intake quite low this past week the damage was not nearly as bad. I was more fatigued than usual though yesterday.
Yesterday I had a doc appointment as follow-up to the hospital visit. He saw me and talked to me about what had transpired at the hospital and then wrote me a prescription for some stuff that's supposed to help end this blasted miscarriage once and for all. If this medication doesn't do the trick then I will be getting a D&C. More joy.
But I'm doing quite well now I'm happy to say. The profuse bleeding has stopped. In fact, it pretty much stopped the day I was at the hospital, and more nothing yesterday, well not more than spotting anyway. Besides the pill to help me stop bleeding I'm also taking 2 different antibiotics. One of them upsets my stomach if I don't take it with something to eat.
There were two upsides to the hospital visit -
1) I finally got some answers and the medical attention I was overdue for and,I sincerely hope, from the bottom of my heart, that this ordeal is truly over with now and that if I'm not out of the woods yet, at least I'm getting out. At some point, I've got to stop bleeding and return to normal.
2) I had Glenn by my side the entire time. :)
