Afternoon Update (6-23)
We are just doing quick monitors of Karsie and testing Michelle's blood sugar. So far Karsie has been fine. We are just about to do a contractions test, so fingers crossed.
Michelle's blood sugar has been quite high lately - every test today has been over the recommended range including one over 200. That is all the medicine and steroids pumped into her. It stinks that it is so high, but she's being monitored and balanced with insulin.
Time to see if she chickens out on sticking herself with a needle....
We have had a bit of a frustrating morning. We need to see our surgeon, but when we called their office (as they were supposed to call us) they told us they had not received the fax from our perinatologist's office giving them our charts and they were supposed to fax it over 2 weeks ago!! This means the earliest appointment we were able to get was July 28th. Hopefully we make it until then. We have some calls that are supposed to be returned today to see if we can speed this process up, but needless to say we are a bit frustrated as we don't want just some on-call surgeon fixing Karsie. We moved down for the best ones. So far we have seen no doctors today, but most of them make their rounds in the afternoon. Let's hope that we see some soon as we are a bit antsy.
FYI - she chickened out on the shot...maybe next time...
