Not sure why things like this keep happening.
Yesterday was ok day. Regina did act little more tired and was pale.
She went to bed around 7.15 pm. 11 PM I was ready to go to bed aslo. Suddenly REgina starts moving around and wanted to go to bathroom.. AND that is when i noticed.
HER PILLOW was bloody. NOT just bloody, it was soaked with blood. ( So I turned on lights and saw that she was leaking blood from her surgery site. Pretty red blood.
I started panicking right away, because I thought she would bleed to death. AND I had friends kids over for a sleepover. There I am packing my suitcase in a hurry, making phone calls and nobody is available.
I finally got hold of my neighbors and they agreed to take my 3 kids to their house till my other friends get back.
I WAS NOt able to drive. I was shaking all over my body because I was shocked by what was going on with Regina. Mr. F. was nice enough to drive me to CHOC at midnight stay there for hour or so to make sure we are ok, and then he would come and pick us up around 6 AM.
Anyway. After we got to CHOC, I told front desk what is up and they HURRIED to get REgina in as soon as possible. They told me not to worry about paperwork that much, since SHe is in their system already.
Regina was put on normal sailine, and labs were drawn. HEr platelets were low again 35 000 and that was the reason why she was bleeding. ALSo. WHile she was lying down, nurse noticed that her pillow was wet, and she is like- IS SHE Sweating??? AND I am panicking again- NO, SHE IS LEAKING FLUIDS FROM HER BRAIN. THEN ER dr came in again to evaluate Regina again. HE went and called Dr. Muhonen ( neurosurgeon), and got some directions what to do.
REgina was given mild sedative, and local anesthesia was applied to her surgery site. Dr. Added few more stices to secure her leaking area. Regina was sleeping. She did not feel a thing. After 2 more hours of waiting they made sure there was no more leaking and we were let home.
OH, and in ER Reginas nose started bleeding also. \ When Dr aske Regina how is she doing, REgina told them - I AM DOING GREAT .
ANYWAY, we are home now. Regina is watching tv. I got 1 hour of sleep and trying to stay awake.
Nick is trying to get here as fast as possible. SO hopefully in 48 hours he will be home.
