We'll....the same day as my last post above (last thursday, today being Monday)....she has been in the hospital again...since Friday 4am. She had the epi pain again which caused us to go back to the hospital and is still there. Her platelets have been as low as 88 over the weekend with them back at 98 over the last two days. Her BP has be up and down 75-90. It is alway around 90-05 with the pain but goes down to aroun 85 after the pain subsides. (It went away with T3 and she had it sat night as well) They did an ultrasound on all her organs today to rule out gallstones etc. The ultrasound came back clean and they can't really say what is causing her epi pain. SHe's had 3 flare ups( all happen in the night) over the last 2.5 weeks. We don't know if they are going to send her home on bedrest with homecare again or not....its kind of wierd since she has one of the smartest docs in the hospital.....The nurse tonight pretty much said that "it" will show itself between now and when she's due, so we are kind of nerveous that one day she will go full blown HeLLp or something and the baby will be born....things that go through my head are...when to start steroids ( if so), etc......I feel bad leaving her at the hospital last night b/c she thinks the pain could start again ( I stayed the last 3) but I have to work.
edit: she's almost always neg for protien, sometimes trace.
her BP was X/90 twice today but average x/85
The doc also said that "maybe" she's just someone with these platelet levels and enzymes that are higher then normal.
