An Unexpected Adventure

I noticed yesterday some strange symptoms were beginning to take over my body. I was slurring my words, drooling, and become short of breath super easily. At first I didn't think anything of it, but it became harder and harder to breath. SO, I called my OB and she said, Go to the ER!!!

I was not excited about it, but off mom and I went. We ended up going to Memorial, and when we first walked in the door I thought we were going to be there for hours! It was jam packed with people. Luckily because of Baby W we were considered high priority, and they took us to a registry and triage area separated from the main waiting room.

Then they took blood directly from my heart through my pulse vein {It HURT}, made me pee in a cup, took more blood, and put an IV in me.

After a lot of waiting, they gave me 100mg of benadryl, 50 mg in the form a shot straight through my iv and 50mg in tablet form. I was so super thankful it was a pill and not a liquid!

I felt the immediate release and golly did it make a huge difference!

Talk about a frustrating day. I was finally beginning to feel better, and then this silly reaction. Golly Golly. I will be 12 weeks Monday, and I am praying every single night I'm feeling more normal soon.

The day ended with a major fight with the insurance company regarding pills, but thankfully we won, and I am doing fine today. I was able to enjoy some of HUBS surprise breakfast!

Now we are heading over to my parents to make oreo footballs for tomorrows big PACKERS VICTORY!

Have a blessed day everyone and thanks for all the prayers,
