Entry 33 ~ December 7, 2012
Lil J went back for his CT scan and saw the resident neurosurgeon. They said that it looked like the clot was getting smaller but his ventricles are getting bigger. They did expect for this to happen since they adjusted the setting on his shunt to drain less but now he has to go back in January for another CT scan because they don't want the ventricles to get too large. Now if you ask me, it didn't look like the hematoma got smaller but of course I really don't know all that much of what I am looking at.
About a week ago lil J got sick with a cold. Actually Thanksgiving Day. We took him to Children's Express to see if he had an ear infection because normally when he has this cold it is from an ear infection. Well he didn't and his breathing was okay so they said it was just a cold and would go away on its own. By Sunday his temp was up to 102.8 and he asked for a nap 3 times that day when he never wants a nap. By Tuesday it was gone and he felt much better. Then I got it. I was finally getting rid of that when this past weekend we went to my in-laws again to make Christmas cookies and his dad was sick. I maybe spent 5 minutes the whole weekend with him. By Monday I was fine but then on my way home from work, my stomach started hurting. All Monday night I was up in the bathroom. I couldn't sit or stand for the severe cramps I got in my stomach. I went to the doctor yesterday and they gave me fluids. The cramping stopped but still very sick. Lil J has not gotten it and neither has his dad so so far it's only me but then again I'm pregnant so of course I would get it.
I saw the ob doctor again. So far he has done an ultrasound at every appointment. They are being cautious with this one since lil J was born with so many problems. So far everything looks great. At the first trimester screening the baby was measuring exactly to the day, and the test showed I have less than 1 in 50,000 chance of it having a chromosome problem. The blood test they did, which is brand new, is 99 percent accurate and showed all was normal so yay for that. I go on December 20th for another ultrasound and will find out if we are having a boy or girl and the anatomy scan. I will also have a fetal echo done to make sure its heart is okay since J was born with a heart defect. I'm praying that all goes well.
Jeremy's cousin is pregnant also and about 2 months ahead of me. She is having a boy. Now she keeps saying she doesn't have money and doesn't know where she is going to get money for clothes and stuff. Even if I have a girl I wont give lil J's old stuff to her. I will save them for Jeremy's sister. His cousin and I aren't fighting anymore but I still won't. Maybe it's mean but after all the hurtful things she said and stuff I just can't do it. When we had J we had to go buy everything and nobody helped us so why can't she do it?
Well that's it for now. I will talk to you all next year. Hope you have a safe and happy holidays and new year. Thanks for reading.
