Checking In

The hand wound is getting worse, not better. We just went to the doctor and spoke with the ob/gyn and I am being admitted to the hospital now to get IV antibiotics to treat this nasty infection (latest diagnosis: something granuola with MSRA). It is still localized, thank goodness. But I am glad finally everyone agrees with me that we shouldn’t just wait till Monday to see the ID doctor and e shoudln't be waiting for this to invade my bloodstream. I am packing a bag (ugh) and checking in now. I’m bringing my computer and hope I can use it. Otherwise, I will have to talk Nicole through updates. No talk over having the babies yet; we have to see how I respond to the meds first. Ugh again.

Please think all sorts of positive thoughts.

Hope your hand heals quickly and without any further complications.

Thanks for the link on the side "A must-visit site all people who AREN'T going through infertility.

I'm not sure your link works, but I googled it. Best friend is having troubles getting pregnant. I want to be there for her. The site offers great advice.

I added it to my blog :)

I'm really sorry about your hand and the stress it's causing. Glad you're in good care at the hospital. Wow, 36 weeks. I have a feeling we might be reading about your new daughters very soon. SO EXCITING! Lots of love to you all.

LIKE I SAID BEFORE you need BOTH hands. Get it taken care of :)
In fact, if you can...and it would be a REALLY good idea to have them add another one to your already existing two.
Please get feeling better. Hope to hear stories from the hospital bed.

Good heavens! I hope it is a quick stay and that all goes smoothly. And I hope you can still get online and update us. But if you can't, please make Nicole keep us in the loop. And let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hmm... no update in 2 days, I'm guessing no wi-fi capabilities at the hospital. I hope things are going ok and after a few days of IV antibiotics you can go home. We're thinking of you!
