For those of you who are interested, I've been posting updates in the Pregnant and Parenting thread on the situation with my DIL. Things are still pretty scary. She has a severe case of pre-eclampsia and doctors are taking things on a day to day basis, but her bloodwork is getting worse and it's a waiting game for how long the pregnancy will be able to last. Doctors have prepared them for an early birth, and they've been shown around the NICU to prepare them for what's coming. Thankfully the little fella is still doing very well, his weight and size are very good and he's still quite active, which heighten his chances after birth. We're all keeping our fingers crossed he can stay in the safe confines of his momma's belly for as long as possible.
For those who asked for a follow-up to my epic faint/vomit horror story of a first day ast a new job:
Successfully completed a "real" first day. This week is still absolutely hammering me... BUT! I'm okay, I didn't get let go over The Incident, and it's all gonna be okay. Deep breaths. And I do have a follow-up doctor's visit scheduled for Wednesday.
Thank you, sistren and gravy eaters everywhere.
