I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
Psalm 27: 13-14

Tuesday, Feb 17

Oooookee...so...my platelette levels from last night dropped again. At 78 now. Which is still okay because it's above 50...but the OB wants above 100. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!! Oh well, it is what it is! So the GIM came to talk to me and said he was a bit concerned because of the dip and had hoped they would keep rising. They are ordering an ultra sound for my pancreas and liver to see if there is any inflamation and to rule out major causes. Whatever. If my levels dropped below 50 I will be put on a daily steroid. If my levels don't rise on that then there is another med that 90% of women respond to. Good grief. BUT, on a good note...I had my ultra sound to check the boys measurements and weights and recheck little fighters fluids. I don't know about the fluid levels...but pray they remain the same...but he is weighing 1lb 11ou and our other babe is 2lbs!! So that was good news!! They've both gained a pound in the past 5 weeks. So...now I just keep praying for a few more weeks...preferably 4 if I could have my way, and then they would be hopefully yet another pound heavier!! BUT, we are thrilled regardless! Little turkey is gaining...I'm praying he hits the 2lb mark well before his arrival! Heart rates were great again, and they are boogying around, so that's good too. I'll get the final report from the OB covering for my OB either end of today or tomorrow morning. My resident OB is setting up a consult with the anesthesiologist today...who happens to be our friend that's on today!!! He already stopped by just to say hi and check in and I told him that he might be sent back on "business" to consult with me about the whole epidural process for my c-section. The OB said that they just like to have the anesthesiology team aware when platelettes are lower. The excitement never ends! I was journaling this morning and just wrote "my book has enough chapters already...I'd love to have some empty pages of just plain for a while". BUT, not to be. So, keep praying for these silly platelettes to go up above 100 and stay that way for the rest of the time. But we are thanking God for the good report on the boys weights!! Wooo hoooooo! Now I just need to keep downing the Blizzards to keep fattening them up! Hmmmmm, or would that just be ME that would get fat! hee hee hee
