Just after you Acknowledge it...

Okay, first thing to know. This is not Sarah...it's Jedd.

Second thing to know. Sarah is in the hospital.

Why is it that as soon as you think things are going well...something always happens to bring you down off your cloud. Maybe I'm a pessimist.

So, in the post below Sarah shared that the ambiotic fluid that was low had in a weeks time risen to 13...a good number. From our reading anything over 5 is acceptable as not dangerous, however, our OB likes to see it at 10 or above. Sarah went back in today to have it checked again (just to be on the safe side) and she scored a 1.6. Not good...not good at all! They sent her straight to the hospital and filled her with several bags of fluid with more to come through the night. They are keeping a monitor on the baby and will do another ultrasound in the AM to see where things stand. We are both hopeful...we really don't know what else to be as we don't quite understand the up and down nature of ambiotic fluids. The doctor didn't think there was a leak so where did the fluids go???

Anyway, if she gets to come home tomorrow...she will update you...if not...she will make me bring her lifelife, er..I mean the laptop...to her and she will still update you.

  1. Although you don't know me, I'm a lurker who found the blog while searching google for blogs that contain Summer of Service. I've been at VCC for a bit, and wish to welcome you and the family. If my family could be of any assistance during this uncertain time please don't hesitate to let us know, even if it's bringing a meal, or helping with laundry or something...if we can't help now, we'll be sure to introduce ourselves during a weekend.
