My Doctor Appt Today

I had a dr appt this evening....omg, it was horrible! I went because of my horrible headaches, and the first thing she mentions is I haven't lost a single pound since having Jaxon...not even his 7lbs!!! It's all retained fluid! My blood pressure is still slightly up, even with the medication I'm on for it....soooo she wants a CT scan, and had bloodwork drawn (ill get to that horrible part in a mintue!) She wrote me a Rx for another blood pressure med, a pain med and then asked about my depression and how I was doing with no medication, I told her I'm stressed now that I'm having these headaches, so I got a Rx for antidepressant (if you lost count, thats 3 Rxs!) So she wrote those, and wrote an order for a CT scan, I'll get a call later about when that is (has to go through my insurance and such)

Ok, now for the horrible bloodwork part! I know I'm a "hard stick" as the nurses call it...my veins are deep in my arm. The nurse was really nice and told me she felt it, and its just deep but she was going to try.....she failed! It HURT! Then she said she'd try in my hand....she got it, and had 2 tubes done and was on the 3rd of 4 when we looked down and my hand was puffing up...my vein blew!!! So she had to try the other hand!!! She got the last 2 and that was done, i was feeling sick though! The dr come by and asked if I wanted a shot for the headache pain...and I told he as long as it helps the pain to go for it...couldnt be no worse than the 3 sticks for blood I've already had!!! The shot hurt worse than the blood sticks!!! OMG, i was in tears!

So that was my eventful trip to the dr, lets hope my next trip isnt so horrible! I go back in 2-3weeks.

You need a Mother to take care of you.

Ugh! That totally sucks. Hope your headaches go away soon ... and no more shots or blood draws for a while.


Sweetling, hang in there! I wish I could grab you and your babies and your husband and bring you here where I could watch over you! My prayers are with you! AS always.
