all about me...

My life is focused on me, me, me. I can't wait until I feel better and can think of or do something else. I thought I would post an update on my pregnancy (or what i think is just a worm in my stomach).

February wasn't much better than January. Because I was puking blood, I had a visit to ER where a UTI was discovered along with pancreatitis and that my liver functions were way out of control. They offered to admit me but we decided they couldn't do much more for me than was already being done at home. The week following that was AWFUL! I had some sort of infection somewhere in my body to they put me on oral antibiotics, which made me sicker. My home health nurse came out and panicked at my condition. She wanted me to go back to the hospital. She dumped my oral antibiotics down the toilet and came back with an IV form. After they were gone is when I recognized a turning point. At the same time I started acupuncture which seems really hokey but I think it may be helping.

In the last 1 1/2 weeks, I have started eating a little. It makes my stomach turn in knots, but it actually feels nice to eat some. I went more than 6 weeks without food/drink. Getting better is such a gradual process and somewhat discouraging. I keep expecting more dramatic changes. If I look back to 2 weeks ago, i am doing much better, but if I compare to yesterday or the day before, I feel worse. I am now 16 weeks and have started to feel the baby move.

My goal is still to be "functioning" by Easter....
