Well, I have my first of two postpartum appointments tomorrow, and I get to see (and thank) Dr. Fabulous for everything he did for me at the hospital two weeks ago! I intend to be brave tomorrow and ask him a few questions that only he has the answers to, such as how critical my placental abruption actually was, how close of a call was it, really, for Baby K and for me, am I a good candidate for a VBAC should I achieve pregnancy again (SO not thinking about that right now, but hey, you never know what the future holds), and how high-risk would a future pregnancy be. He's a straight shooter and I'm quite sure he'll tell me straightforwardly what I really want and need to know. In all honesty, I'm scared to death to find out how much (or how little) of a close call it actually was for my sweet girl, but something inside me really needs to know the truth, scary or not. Her Apgar scores were great--8 and 9--so my suspicion is that it wasn't as critical as I'm fearing. But like I said, I just gotta know.
Dad flew home to NY this afternoon, but thankfully I'm not as sad as I thought I would be since he and Mom will be back in two short weeks! Baby K's baptism will take place on the night before Easter, April 3rd, and Mom and Dad plan to fly back on the Wednesday or Thursday before...they really don't want to miss it, which makes me happy. I'll still be on maternity leave so it'll be easy for us to pick them up from the airport. Mom flies back to NY tomorrow, and I'm planning to attend a fabulous Irish dance recital with K tomorrow night so I won't have to mope around an empty house! I really miss being involved in Irish dance, and we will get to see lots of friends and incredible dancing, so that'll be fun. Plus lots of people are wanting to meet this sweet baby girl, so I'm quite excited about it!!
I'll share what I find out tomorrow in a future post. :)
