On Friday we went to Kaiser to see Dr. Spivak. Rachel & the babies are doing well. Rachel is really uncomfortable and is a little delirious from the lack of sleep. Dr. Spivak scheduled us to go to Labor & Delivery in Santa Rosa on Sunday to get Rachel’s blood pressure checked and to take a urine sample. So far her blood pressure has been in a good range. Rachel had one high reading on Friday. It went back to normal on the next reading, but Dr. Spivak still thought it would be a good idea to go in on Sunday rather than wait until Tuesday (since it was Labor Day Weekend.)
We spent a couple of hours at the pool on Saturday, we are just trying to take things slow and easy! I have to commend Rachel for her toughness in these difficult times. She is in pain pretty much 24/7 and doesn’t get to sleep more than a couple of hours at a time. Yet, even through all of that, she still manages to smile and laugh at my silly jokes! 🙂
We went to Kaiser at 10am on Sunday. We figured we would only be there a short time – in and out in under an hour. Yeah, right! That didn’t quite work out as expected!!! We were there for almost 3 hours because of a complicated birth that our doctor was a part of.
The Good News (for the babies) – Rachel hit the 200 pound mark on Sunday! (See cover photo)
The Bad News (for Rachel) – Rachel hit the 200 pound mark on Sunday! (See photo below)
After the doctor had delivered the baby, she came in to see Rachel. She did a quick sonogram, at first they said that they were going to try and hook Rachel up to the baby monitors, but they thought better of that, based on the complexity of trying to monitor triplet babies. 😀 Rachel’s blood pressure was good, she had a little bit of protein in her urine. This has been the standard result the past couple of weeks. Good news, nothing to really worry about!
Other than that, there’s not a lot of news to report this week.
Next up NST scan on Wednesday…
Ke Akua Ho’omaika’i – God Bless…
