Didn't want to worry anyone, but we spent the night at Kettering Hospital again last night. I AM FINE! We thought I had a slow leak in one of the amniotic sacs, but everything appears to be okay. They did a paper test on the fluid and it turned blue like amniotic fluid would, but that could aslo mean other things. My dr came in to see me a little before ten o'clock last night and did an ultrasound and exam and was very pleased with everything. The gave me a celestone shot to help mature the babies lungs and I will stay so that I can get the second dose, which is usually given about 24 hours after the first. Celestone is a steroid that helps the lungs produce surfactant. Surfactant is very important for preemies and any newborns, in that it helps "lubricate" the lungs and keep the walls from sticking together when they touch during breathing. I may get this once a week for a while. Not really sure yet. Going over to dr. Saldanas office sometime today for cervical ultrasound to make sure it is still closed and long. Then I will hopefully go home later this evening. Jozey stayed with my parents and Adam is picking her up after working a half day today.
I feel great. Have a good book with me and am just gonna rest and order room service all day :)
Sorry if any of you are offended that we didn't call you last night, we just didn't want to worry anyone and it was ten before we found out I had to stay. Someone started the prayer chain, which is fine, but I hope no one was offended to find out that way instead of by us. That was not our intention at all.
So, like I said, I feel fine and there is no need to visit, but I'm at good 'ole Kettering Hospital if you need me.
