Mark spent the night with me at the hospital last night. He unfolded the double-sized bed in the room, and we had a chance to cuddle and really talk. I can’t begin to tell you how much it helped me. He has always had such a calming effect on me.
Dr. Uribe (OB) came by to do his rounds at 6:30 AM (when does this man sleep?). He said he was comfortable enough with my vitals and numbers that we could try bed rest at home. Two hours later, we were pulling into our driveway. I am so happy to be home! I am utterly exhausted and feel like I could sleep for a week. I am NOT out of the woods. The only cure for pre-eclampsia is delivery, so I have hopefully just bought myself some extra time…perhaps even a few weeks. I could go back tomorrow or a month from now…it’s impossible to say.
Mark is working from home until all of this is over with. He will be taking me to my doc appointments (which will be almost daily).
I am off to bed…so happy to be home for now. Thanks for all of the emails wishing me well and sending your encouraging words. I may need them again soon.
