What have we been up too?

Since coming home from Dad's funeral, things have been fairly low key here.

On Wednesday everyone was still very tired from the trip so we all stayed home except Steve. I was starting to feel a bit under the weather and thought it was just from the emotions of dads funeral and end of pregnancy.

On Thursday I woke up feeling really off colour. I spent most of the day in bed and when Steve got home from work, I told him that I hadn't felt baby move all day so wanted to go to the hospital and make sure everything was okay.

Everything was okay with baby but I had also been throwing up most of the day so the midwife wanted me to go to the doctor and make sure. The doctor gave me an anti nauseous injection and a script for some tablets to take the next day.

I had a pretty good day on Friday and felt much better. On Saturday though I woke up feeling ill again. I rested most of the day and started taking the anti nauseous tablets. In spite of taking these, I was still bringing up everything I was eating and drinking.

Steve ended up back at the hospital with me on Sunday morning and we saw a doctor and an obstetrician. They decided that the vomiting was probably from a UTI rather than a gastro bug and to take some urine samples and start me on antibiotics. Today was my second day on antibiotics and I am still a bit nauseous but feeling much better. I will get the results of the urine test tomorrow when I see the obstetrician again. I am pretty sure though that we are on the right track now since the antibiotics seem to be making me feel better.

Everyone is on holidays now and Steve has been doing a lot.

Amelia cut her foot on Thursday night and needed stitches so Steve was at the hospital twice that day. In the early hours of the morning, this morning she and Brigette, came into our room and said that Amelia's face was swollen. When we looked, she had a huge lump on the side of her face coming from close to her ear. We gave her some panadol and then took her to the doctors this morning. She has a small sore on the back of her ear that an infection has got in. She is on antibiotics too and we will go back next week to make sure they have worked.

I am so glad this is happening now instead of Christmas time and while everyone is on holidays. I am hoping that by the time Amelia goes back to the doctor next week, everyone is well and we are in holiday mode fully.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
