How did Nugget get in here???? Blake just walked him right in on a leash!!! :) A lot of hospitals will allow you to bring in pets. They have to be well behaved and need to have seen a vet in the last 30 days. As Blake F. said, "How about the last 30 seconds?" All Blake had to do was bring in a copy of his (Nugget's that is...) shot records and that was it. It is kind of funny to think that I now have a copy of Nuggets records on MY medical chart! I hope they don't get us confused.
Blake called before he came up and I asked him to bring the dog. "You will probably be home in a few days...no need to do all that..." I did not know he talked to the nurse at lunch about bringing him up last night and was already planning to do so. Sneaky little devil! Of the two of us, I was more excited to see Nugget than he was to see me. He was just thrilled to be out of the house. Like always, he was in scavenger mode and wanted to sniff every corner in search of available food sources. One track mind!
My ultrasound looked good today. My cervix measured 18mm-20mm which was a little better than Monday. Dr. B stopped in before the ultrasound. I am finished with the latest round of Indocin. That leaves me taking Procardia, with terbutaline PRN. I have only had to take one of those in the past 48 hours. He wants to see how I tolerate the decrease in meds over the next 24 hours. If all looks well in the morning, I will most likely go home. Again, he was quick to say that my comfort level in leaving is also a factor. The past few days have been very quiet, as far as the contractions are concerned. My anxiety has definitely decreased to the point where home sounds kind of nice! Blake says he would love to have me back! Awwww... Followed by, "You better hope they let you out while I'm on lunch or you will have to call a cab. Or take a metro bus to Bellevue and wait until I get off." Don't worry, he's all talk. He would be more than happy to block out a few appointments on my behalf!
Looks like I have at least one more night in the Predator's Suite! I need to figure out put in on hold until the next hospital stay! Whenever that might be. I don't know what I would do in a regular room. I have gotten pretty spoiled. Actually, I don't care where the put me as long as my nurses are the same! They have been WONDERFUL. Maybe I could take just take them home with me. We have an extra bedroom! Supposedly Nicole Kidman took a couple for her very own. And no HIPAA...I did not hear that from a nurse. I heard it before I was even admitted. No one violated the rules...
