(Emma passing time with her Apple. You can see one of the scrapes there on her cheek…)
Emma and I slept a good bit last night even though they checked her blood pressure every 2 hours. Her pressure is 90/60, which is the lowest they want it to go…hummm, I’ve no idea.
The Neurologist came in yesterday and spent lots of time with her. His plan is to do an EEG today and try to trigger an “episode”.
He’s concerned that the fainting could be seizures and says that either way, the “blacking out” is caused by something and he’d sure like to know what.
The opinion of the Neurologist is that she’s now at a high-risk in her pregnancy although her OBGYN, who also came in yesterday, seems extremely unconcerned about the entire situation. He was flippant and actually filling out another patient’s chart as Emma was talking. I’d like to fire him truth be told, but we’ll see.
The Neurologist is considering sending Emma to Emory where they do a lot of work with issues like this in pregnant women.
I woke at 4 this morning and tip-toed out, leaving Emma sound asleep. After getting vending machine coffee (sigh.) I walked to the main lobby of the hospital which was eerily still and quiet. Tucking myself in a chair in the corner I spent some time praying and reading Pastor Pete’s book, Plan B.
I’m so glad I brought the book with me. God is giving me the focus I need for this journey through this book…
“When you respond in your current circumstances as if you were certain that God is there, you will see God in the circumstances.”
If you think of it, please pray that God would be in complete control of the decisions made on Emma’s behalf today…
So much love to each of you.
