    I'm glad this week is over

    First I want to thank everyone for replying to my spotting scare...I saw the OB Monday and everything was fine but I was told to stay off my feet as much as possible.
    Tuesday morning Lauren hit her head on our coffee table. I didn't think much of it as we have bumps often but 10 minutes later while changing her diaper she threw up...then again...so I called the ped and off we went. Well, she threw up another 4 or 5 times on the way there. The ped ordered a CT scan and we were told she had a SKULL FRACTURE. I had to go to the hospital where they made us wait 5 hours to be transferred to Childrens Hospital....ICU! We spent the night there (dh went home to be with Madison)...the next morning a team of neurosurgeons told me the CT scan had been misread and she had no fracture. She had thrown up over 30 times and they said that was due to either the head trauma causing pain resulting in nausea or a virus! What a relief...I will never forget the terror of this week. She's still been sick all week but it's due to lack of fluids (IV in the hospital but once we got home I can't keep much in her)...anyway this evening she was finally off my lap and smiling a little. It's amazing to see her and her sister together now. They have been hugging and holding hands nonstop...they totally missed each other.
    Needless to say I've not been able to follow my OBs orders but I've had no spotting since and baby is moving like crazy.

    I'm one of those people that has been almost ashamed to post my problems or anything at all due to the grief the Judy and Michelle have been through. I just feel like I'm being so thoughtless...but I do pray for them. I don't know what else to do. I'm glad Kathy brought this up.

    Hi Katy,

    Oh my goodness!! What a week you've had!! I'd be glad the week was over too! From a skull fracture to a virus???? It amazes me that doctors can make mistakes like that!!!! Gracie falls down all the time!!! To even think that a bump could be a skull fracture is frightening. I'm so sorry that you had to go through that.....having your precious baby in the hospital is terrible! While I'm not glad she wa sick....I glad she was JUST sick. Poor little bugger! It must be so cool having twins. Have they ever been apart like that? It must be really amazing the see the bond that they have....I bet there's nothing like it!

    I'm glad your spotting went away! My cervix gets irritated from nookie. Sometimes after I see a little tinge of blood and I freak...but I know what it is, so I try to relax.

    Take care of yourself and your sweet little girls! Never feel ashamed to post anything here. We all want to know what is going on with you .......ALWAYS!!

    That is a bad week. You should always post when you need to. No one is comparing problems. I have found I really get the support I need when I do. Sometimes you just need the support.
