a quick recap

Just a quick entry to let you all know I'm doing okay. Wednesday night and Thursday morning I had a take a pill called Miso.prostol to soften my cervix. I spotted some Thursday morning, which told me it had worked. My D&E was for 12:30, and I had to be there at 12 to get insurance info and some blood drawn. After that it was over to the surgury waiting room. They brought me back around 1 (late, of course), got me changed, started an IV, and had me talk to the anesthesiologist. After that it was some more waiting... luckily with Trav there to keep me company... and they took me back around 2:15. They laid me down and gave me a squirt of sleepy juice, and that's all I remember until I woke up in the recovery room. The doc came by then to tell me that it had gone well, which I barely remember since I was still in a post-anesthesia fog, then I got a shot of RhoGAM (since I'm RH-).

After that, once I started becoming more lucid, they sat me up in a chair and gave me lots of soda, tea, and crackers (which were a God-send since I hadn't had any food since 10pm the night before). We were on our way home around 5pm... so a longer day then I had hoped for. I got a prescription for Mether.gine to take at 8pm, 2am, and 8am... it helps to clamp down the uterus to stop bleeding. I also got a prescription for Per.cocet, which thankfully I really haven't needed. My bleeding has been constant, but minimal... and I haven't had much at all in the way of cramps.

I think Trav and I are both a bit relieved that this part is over. I hated that weird in between place I was stuck in... pregnant, but not. At least now, physically I can move on... and mentally, at least I know where I stand.

Okay... I have to run, I'm at work. More when I get the chance.

Ps. Thank you all, so much, for your kind words and prayers. I cherish and covet them all. Please, keep those prayers coming.
