Hey everyone, I’ve made it to week 30 of this pregnancy and was feeling so great with the hyperemesis behind me! Thank goodness Noelle even took some really beautiful shots so we have proof. LOL. Unfortunately I was hit with some freaky health issues last week that will probably take me away from this and e-mailing for a while. Last Tuesday I woke up to a spinning world that kept spinning with every head turn. After visiting my doctor and midwife, Brian hauled me to the hospital where I’ve been for the last few days getting tests done and talking to fancy-sounding specialists. The good news is all major causes were pretty well ruled out: stroke, brain tumor, spinal fluid leak, MS, etc. This leaves a diagnosis of Benign Positional Vertigo. Yuck! Like the hyperemesis, it has turned us on our heads around here as we scramble to make up for the loss of mom once again (aah, here comes the swearing and the f%$#&ing tears). It usually lasts 6 weeks or so. Perhaps Brian can give updates here from time to time. Until then, here are some specific prayer requests:
Praise God for the last few weeks of feeling great
Help the kids not to be scared by mommy who moves slow and funny and with a cane sometimes
Help Brian to maintain energy required to take over everything
Humility required to ask for help
Continued protection for developing daughter
Practitioners who can preform maneuvers that provide possible cure
Thanks everyone and we can always be reached by phone!
