Thanks, ladies. I get the sense that she is just one of those people who is not very emotional or who doesn't have a very high emotional IQ--and it's pretty obvious she's never experienced such a loss. I was glad in a certain sense that she said that, though, because it reminded me to tell her about the visual disturbance I had in the store the other day. A cloudiness descended over part of my right eye and had a bright (like lightening) edge to it. It went away after about 20 minutes. Also, my blood pressure when I went in to see her was 168/110 so she put me on metoprolol. I don't understand what's going on with my body! My blood pressures were always 110s/60s until I hit the 2nd trimester. Do the after-effects of pre-e/HELLP usually last this long? So frustrating. Pretty soon, I'm going to be a walking pharmacy.
Good doctors are so hard to find. I've rarely encountered a doctor I like--sad, but true. I'm somewhat restricted right now because I have an HMO, but I plan on switching to a PPO as soon as I get the chance.
