Layin' low today after bleeding myself silly last night. I wanted to write, 'almost bleeding to death', but that sounds so dramatic. I never felt near death. 5.30 pm, I had a sudden, bright red gush, followed by copious, copious amounts of bright red blood and HUGE amounts of blood clots, until the doc/mw came and injected me with some drug that stops that kind of bleeding, at midnight.
It's been 2.5 weeks since the "procedure", and during those weeks I've had VERY light spotting, only requiring a pantiliner, if even that, most days. I have no pain or fever or lightheadedness, which would require going to the hospital and having the procedure again. The mw who performed the thing is out of town, and her backup (my mw from the girls' births) is who came out. She asked why I hadn't asked her to do it, and I responded that I didn't think she did those. She said, if a woman is in need, she does it. Wow--a whole underworld of abortions down here. I had no idea.
This is like the abortion that just won't quit. It's getting ridiculous.
I feel fine today, if not kinda wiped.
Viet took the girls out and I have some blessed alone time here in my own house. yay!
