Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day for Chloe and myself. I woke up feeling nauseous, weak and bleeding heavily again!! After 2 weeks of feeling a lot better since starting the hormone medication my Obgyn put me on, it stopped working😢
My Obgyn wasn’t in the office, so I left a message for her nurse. When she called me back and I told her my symptoms she was alarmed and said she would contact my Dr and see what they needed to do. While waiting for a call back I pushed on through my day. At 1:30 I dropped Chloe off at OT therapy and was waiting in my car. I started feeling worse and the bleeding had increased. I was getting scared. As the OT was bringing Chloe out I got the call that I needed to go to the ER ASAP!!! I couldn’t go straight there. I had to get Chloe to my Mom and my Dad took me to the hospital.
They took blood and vitals as soon as I walked in. They allowed my Dad to stay with me, which was nice. I thought about Chloe and wondered what if I have to have surgery? I was stressed!!
They ordered an ultrasound and I was wheeled off to that area of the hospital. I was hoping they would tell me something soon. I was in that room for 5 hours while they decided what to do. Finally the nurse came in and told me I was getting a very strong IV med to stop the bleeding and my Dr prescribed a new medication to try. I was relieved I wasn’t having surgery that night and texted my Mom to tell Chloe I would be there soon.
Chloe was very happy to see me when I walked in. She said “Go home now”😊 She was stuck to me like glue until midnight, when she finally fell asleep. I struggled with sleep because the bleeding was not slowing down. I was up most of the night.
This morning the Dr checked on me. I informed her the bleeding was still bad. So I filled my medication and will be getting a 2nd ultrasound tomorrow morning and see her after for our next plan of attack. Phew it’s been crazy🤪🤪
I will update you in a future post how I’m doing, but this incident put off Chloe’s last 2 therapies of the week. We will make them up next week. I hope all of you are doing well. STAY HEALTHY ❤️
