Purrayer Request: (Still)

Published December 7, 2015 by hairballexpress

  
Flippin hospital. 

The Creature’s Mom and Dad spent most of Sunday at the ER – trying to make sure the baby Creature is okay because of some bleeding purroblems that have hung around fur a couple of days.

At first after the initial exam they said everything looked good but they still wanted to do an ultrasound. 

Then it got a little frustrating. I’ll spare you all the details, but they were basically told that they don’t know if the baby’s okay. 

“The bleeding could be a miscarriage – or a lot of other things – and, (that) if she’s having a miscarriage, there’s nothing we can do about it.” 😾 

(This was said with no empathy or concern whatsoever)- just hurriedly – as if they just wanted to rush them out the door.

So they still don’t know fur sure what’s going on and exactly what is causing the bleeding, and the radiologist said that her uterus is “moving around more than (they) like to see -” But we have no idea exactly what that means.

So the humans are exhausted and unsure about what the flea is going on and still don’t know fur sure that the baby is okay.

Please keep them all in purrayer! 

Meanwhile, I’m sharpening my claws,…

*tail FLAP!* 😾

  • Oh no! We’re so sorry to hear this! We’ll be thinking of you and keeping you in our purrayers! Wishing you all the best and that the little one is okay!! (((BIG HUGS)))

    Lots of love, Roxy & Tigerlino ❤

    PEEEEEEE ESSSSSSSSS: It makes us sad to hear that the stuff at the hospital showed no empathy or concern whatsoever… 😦

  • One in five pregnancies end in a miscarriage – that is why most women do not announce theirs before week 12, to make sure they do not have to talk about a miscarriage if that should happen. I hope the best, Shrimps, and that the little one has made it. The odds are good, 80 % of pregnancies do NOT end in a miscarriage. But if it happens – or has happened – make sure that the Creature’s mom does not feel guilty. I am sure she did all she could to keep her child. If she has kept it only time will show. She should get some rest now.

    • Thank you sweetie. The human never had a miscarriage – and as far as we know, Chris’s (Creature’s Daddy) family hasn’t either. And her Mom has been careful about she does and eats or drinks ever since they decided to start trying. We are still planning on holding that baby! (UH- well, THE HUMANS ARE- I’m gonna break out of this place)!😾

  • And why the doctors cannot say for sure:
    well, here is an article in the Guardian:
    http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2015/sep/24/doctors-advised-wait-longer-before-diagnosing-miscarriages
    Trigger warning: THAT ARTICLE contains an ultrasound scan from a woman in her 2nd month of pregnancy. Might be too close to home for the Creature’s Mom. But the whole article just says A) it need not be a miscarriage – wait for another scan in about two weeks
    “In spite of the advances in ultrasound technology, said Elizabeth Anne McCarthy and Stephen Tong, “We cannot get around the fact that often we still must resort to watching and waiting.””
    B) If it was one – she is by far not alone!

    • Thank you so much.

      We know they are busy – it IS after all, an EMERGENCY ROOM – and of course, they weren’t the only ones there.

      But sometimes I think the staff at these places only see people as a nameless, faceless collection of symptoms. They furget these are real people who need to understand what’s happening, and aren’t (usually) in the medical purrfession themselves.

  • I have mixed feelings about many members of the medical profession. While they are the people to go to when there is an issue, it seems like too often, these people, who are supposed to help others, act self-centered and/or all they want is to be paid. However, IMHO, the worst ones see that someone has a problem, so they prescribe something, which helps a bit, but never cures the problem, so the one who is suffering feels like they are on a merry-go-round.
    The good part of your current situation is that you know that one way or the other, there will be a resolution within 9 months. And I’m purraing you will be posting about why diapers are worse than your catbox 😉

  • I have read my comments again – maybe a little bit too factual – you see, I am hopeful that mother and child will get through this and I am not good with the whole prayer thing. This is why I won’t send prayers: Mine won’t mean much – I am not an ardent believer.
    But I really hope it will all turn out for the best. The most important thing is: Whatever happened – the creature’s Mom could not influence it! She must be convinced of this fact! If she really lost or looses her unborn child, IT IS NOT HER DOING! Mourning the loss of an unborn child (if it has come to this or should come to this, something we DO NOT KNOW YET) is one necessary thing, but to beat oneself up for this is not right! There is nothing she could have done differently. NOTHING!!!!
