Eventful week

Just a quick post--we returned home this afternoon from another stay in the hospital. It turns out that I had retained placental tissue, which caused me to start hemorrhaging terribly yesterday. It was probably the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. I had an emergency D and C under general anesthesia and, thank God, it looks like they got everything. They estimate I lost 1200 cc. of blood, but my blood count has stayed just high enough to avoid a transfusion. We're all totally exhausted, but I'm just really grateful to be alive right now.

I can only imagine how scary that was, I will pray that you continue to heal. You have so much to keep you busy, you need to be well to be able to keep up.
I am so glad you are better now. So glad God kept you here so you can enjoy your growing family!
