Thanks everyone. Things are going..... OK. We've had a bit of a rough time but its getting better (I hope).
About 10 days PP, I unfortunately got a terrible infection/ abscess and had to be opened back up and earned myself 4 days in the hospital again. Then Clover came home at about the 2.5 week mark, then Jasper at the 3 week mark, but Ash was taking his sweet time and that was difficult. Then, the s**t hit the fan about 11 days ago (just after Jasper came home) when Clover stopped breathing. Completely. 911 was called and they managed to bring her back her in the ambulance, but of course she ended up back in the NICU (obviously). We couldnt work out what was wrong but in the end she tested positive for pertussis. *sigh* Then 4 days later (only a week ago) Jasper was readmitted because he was starting to show signs of respiratory distress as well. We all tested negative for pertussis here, so God only knows how she got it.
So by last friday all my babies were back in the NICU and it was an extremely dark time for me. I am here every day and read every post, I hope no one things I have abandoned the group.
Anyway, all three babies were released to go home earlier this week. Clover is still very sick and I sometimes wonder if she should be home. She still has coughing jags when she totlaly stops breathing and goes blue and limp etc. But she comes out of them. Its so, so stressful. I live in constant fear that she is going to die. Constant. But they released her and of course I am happy she is here.
So anyway. Its been.... long. And a bit of a nightmare. I really just want to be able to enjoy them all without the fear, but I have faith it will happen soon. We knew this could happen. It will be OK. Thank you all for your sweet comments and support. :) xxxx
I just feel for you so much and please know my thoughts are with you. I pray for those babies, for you, for your family. I wish there was something I could do but I will just send good thoughts your way, I hope you continue to find strength and will get to enjoy the babies soon. Take it minute by minute if need be. Hugs and support!
I wish there were a way we could rally around you IRL, I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I agree completely with MamanFrancaise, you'll look back a this in a few weeks and just let out a huge sigh of relief. Sending so so so much love and healthy vibes and support to you and your kiddos. Feel free to vent or express your concerns or just lurk or whatever feels best for you. We're here! xo
