Today is drawing to a close and I am yet to blog. Frankly, I’m feeling rather uninspired and still decidedly unwell. I have had very little sleep in the last 48hours and what little I’ve had has been of poor quality and in stretches of no more than 3hours. As a result, my capacity for coherent thought is significantly impaired.
A few pretty important things happened today. The baby capsule was fitted to Sean’s car. So now bub can come home! Actually, I had a birth to 4yrs convertible seat fitted in my car so we would’ve been able to go home anyway but…whatevs.
I also had my pre-admission clinic appointment and met with an anaesthetist. The Caesarean is only 11 days away! My biggest concern right now is shaking this cold and getting in the best health I can prior to surgery. Over the last few years, I’ve noted that when I get any kind of lingering chest infection or cough it frequently progresses to pneumonia. Being pregnant means I can’t do the full frontal pharmaceutical assault on this that I might otherwise do. I can rely only on rest and very basic nutritional management. Having pneumonia and going into surgery doesn’t fill me with confidence. I must remain positive and do what I can to kick this. I DON’T have pneumonia right now and, please God, I can avoid it.
This line of thought it upsetting me so I think I’ll just get into the Musical Challenge!!!
