It's going to be bumpy

You may have noticed I have been absent from the blogging world. I just thought I would post what is going on. Mid-December I got sick and sure enough, I was pregnant. I can usually tell at week 5. I got sicker by the day. By Jan 7, I had a PICC line placed in my arm (drop down into my chest) so I could administer daily IV fluids. I was SOOOO sick still but hanging in there. January 19th, the line had to be pulled because I had several clusters of blood clots in my neck and arm. I cried when they took it out...it's my lifeline. I was in the hospital for a week, just came home yesterday. I had a Groshong Central Line placed in my chest. I get all of my food/water/drugs through the line. As you might imagine, I am still very sick. I am 11 weeks along as of tomorrow. It is going to be a rough 9 months. One of my sisters (my twin) is here for 2 weeks which is the only way I am surviving.
Don't plan on seeing me "around" much. Thanks for your support.

I am feeling super bad for you. Please let me know what you need me to do when your sister leaves. I'm so glad she was able to come.

I had a feeling that you might be pregnant. Why else would you skip out on ward volleyball? :) I'm so sorry you are so sick. I'm here to help you in anyway I can. Oh ya- and Congratulations.
