Hospital and Emergency Surgery

Usually I like to keep blog posts happy and interesting. This post is interesting but not that happy. Sunday morning unfortunately found us in the emergency room. I have been bleeding for a while now, as you should a little bit after having a baby, but every now and again I would have huge gushes of bright red blood that would leave me feeling dizzy and weak.

I didn't think too much of it the first few times it happened because some of the books I read said that was normal in the first few weeks. Well it didn't go away and Saturday morning I had another gush in which I lost a significant amount of blood that took me all day to recover from. Since this was Saturday and there are no doctor's office open, we decided to wait until Monday and make an appointment. I was so worried about it though that we decided, if it happened again we would go to urgent care.

Well Sunday morning it happened again and in we went. First going to urgent care and then they sent us to the ER so they could do an ultrasound to find out exactly what was going on. They discovered that I had some left over placenta that the idiot intern that delivered my baby didn't get out. So I had to have and emergency surgery called a D&C to remove the rest of it. I think they commonly use this surgery for women who have had miscarriages because the anesthesiologist thought I had miscarried.

Everything went well with the surgery and I even got to go home that night. The doctor told Steven that they found quite a bit so it was a really good thing we went in. Everything should be fine with me now and I have a check up in a few weeks with the really nice doctor that did my operation just to make sure. The worst part is I feel like I just had another baby and now have to recover all over again.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers hopefully this should be over and I can finally get back to normal.

New Car

So unfortunately for us, our beautiful Infinity that was injured in the hospital parking lot was declared dead on arrival this past week after being rushed to the insurance adjusters office for immediate repairs. Despite all their best efforts the Infinity is totaled. =( She was a great car for the 9 months we owned her and she will be sorely missed.

On a happier note we got to buy a new car! We traded in my Tiburon so instead of having 2 half way decent cars we now have one really nice one. We bought a brand new 2008 Honda Accord. It is so roomy and nice we love it!

Any one who hasn't yet should come over and see our new baby... for those of you who have already come over... come again and see our new car!

Baby Jace is Home!

This is a video of him smiling. He is so cute, I cant believe it! Anyway Jace came home yesterday after an extra night in the hospital. He was being treated for jaundice. The doctor told us he was right on the boarderline for jaundice but they wanted to nip it in the bud. (or is it butt?) He seems to be much better now, except that he doesn't ever want to wake up during the day. He does like the evening time though seeing how much he was up last night! I guess that is normal for babies though. We are so happy to finally have him home.

So besides having a baby there is another story to tell. It happened Wednesday morning. I (Steven) was in the hospital parking lot driving around looking for a spot to park in. I was thinking how exciting it was going to be taking home my two loves when out of no where I felt a huge bang. The first thought I had was that i couldn't believe that i just ran into a parked car! How stupid could I have been. To my suprise when I looked back after I stopped, there was a truck in the middle of the isle with its backup lights on. This is when I realized that I definatly was hit and it wasn't my fault. Whew! The other lucky thing was that the lady who hit me did have insurance and there was a whitness who came over to help me out. So everthing is being taken care of luckily. I drop it off at the insurance's repair shop on Monday and pick up my rental. It made for a stressful day though. One can only laugh though. Here are some picks of the damage.

More Baby Pics

These first ones are him getting his treatments for Jaundice. Cool Shades dude!
We are hoping to be able to take him home with us tomorrow afternoon. We miss him so much! (can you believe they kicked us out of the hospital but kept our baby? How rude!)

Here are a few pics for you to enjoy. Once we finally get to have him home we will get some really good ones.
