A Rough Time
This pregnancy is doing me in again! Yesterday I could not get a handle on the vomiting/retching/yakking/ralphing etc. I am so glad I have such a good kid- he napped for almost 3 hours in the afternoon, so I did as well. He went right to sleep at 7pm just like every other night too. I tried to get to bed early, but my stomach was so irritated from throwing up all day I just felt miserable. Then by 11pm I was back to throwing up constantly. It gets so bad that I cannot breath and it just makes it worse. I called Matt who is working over in Pelly Crossing right now around 1am and he told me to call the nurse and get a shot of gravol. The nurses here are wonderful of course, and she came over to the house to give me a shot since I couldn't leave Hunter! That helped and I was to sleep by 2am. Hunter slept until 7:30, but after a shot of gravol I felt like I had the worst hangover in the world! So I called my neighbours, their daughter is the one who always babysits Hunter, and they took Hunter for the morning. What wonderful people! So I went back to bed until after 11. When I went to pick up Hunter I was fed tea, borscht, and biscuits. I am so lucky to have met such wonderful people here in Faro. My diclectin should arrive tomorrow from Whitehorse. Hurray for the drugs!
