Okay--whew! Back to the world of connection!
Computer is fixed and I am so grateful.
Thank you for the kind notes and good thoughts regarding my lovely daughter. I am grateful for that too.
It's been an interesting couple of weeks and we still have no answers with Beautiful and her chest pain. But she's feeling much better.
She visited with the nurse practitioner at her OB's office who listened very, very carefully to Beautiful's heart during regular breathing, deep breathing, etc. She could hear a bit of tachycardia. Also, Beautiful was having some shortness of breath and dizziness during periods of rest.
The nurse practitioner chose the safe course of action and sent Beautiful to a cardiology clinic to be set up with a 24 hour heart monitor so we could get a good reading of her heart's activity during waking hours, sleeping time, activity and rest. The results of this 24 hours were to be forwarded to Beautiful's OB.
Beautiful visited with her OB on Tuesday. The results hadn't been forwarded. And the OB didn't check Beautiful's heart. And didn't check her for edema. Does that seem kinda crazy to anyone else?
I'm not a doctor. So maybe I'm overreacting.
Baby, however, is doing just fine, thank you : ) She was having the hiccoughs during the examination. She appears to be a healthy weight, size and shape and only has 4 more weeks of baking before the timer goes off!
Did I mention that I'm going to be Beautiful's birth partner? The Boyfriend has tried every avenue (short of breaking a limb--what a wimp ; ) to make it possible to be here when Lily is born. But it doesn't seem to be in the stars. So I'll be there. Watching my little girl in agonizing pain. Watching my little girl become a mother. Watching my granddaughter take her first breath. I'm speechless just thinking about it . . .
