Recovery and the damage done...

Sunday, April 20, 2014

So my c-section recovery wasn't so great. It could have been a lot worse, so believe me no complaining here. Just really, really slow. They stapled and stitched me and after a week took the staples out. I was split open in half for a month which meant ANOTHER month of bed rest. UGH. My belly was so big I couldn't access the incision so my fiancÚ got to clean and dry it every 2 hours for 6 weeks. Lucky boy ;)
My diabetes reset back to "normal" after I delivered, meaning I just needed Metformin, and I have normal blood work from January. It seems that was just a sigh of relief. The pregnancy destroyed my pancreas, I am completely insulin dependent, on blood pressure meds, and am between stage 1 and stage 2 kidney failure. I was dx 2 weeks ago and I still can't believe it. Can't wait to get to a "real" doctor. My Obamacare doesn't kick in until May1.
I don't feel too discouraged by it, although I know I now have to clean up my act for real. Eat clean, daily exercise, lose the weight and keep it off. I can't screw around anymore...there's no leeway. That pretty little girl is good motivation. I'm just so very tired and it's hard to make time for meal planning, etc. I think as I start to get my sugars down and my kidneys functioning better I will have more energy and this will become easier.

Charlotte

Sunday, April 20, 2014

It's been so hectic here...forgive me for not keeping up.
Charlotte is 3 months old, almost 4! We are having so much fun with her! I am truly so happy and feel so blessed to have her in my life. I'll post some Easter pics later.

    What a gorgeous little girl! I can certainly understand that your priority isn't blogging and keeping in touch with SparkPeople right now - I'd have a hard time tearing myself away from this little one!

Charlotte was born without complication and now we are finally home recovering.
Thank you all for your support and prayers!
I will make a blog with pics of course when I can. She is gorgeous!
Still worried about infection with my weight and diabetes but so far so good. Just a lot of pain!

    Such good news! I've been checking SP regularly just for this reason! Omg, this was one of the most difficult experiences ever--I white-knuckled my phone all the way through--and that both of you are ok just makes me so happy and grateful!

Update: Prayers needed

Monday, December 23, 2013

Been in the hospital since Thurs with preeclampsia. Trying to get me to 37 weeks before c-section Dec 30.
My platelets are low and if I have placenta accreta it's going to be very dangerous.
Please keep us in your prayers!
