Updates:
Sorry for no update last week! My OB(old one) tried me on two new meds that didn’t work and I ended up extremely sick last week. I lost five more pounds last week and should have gone to the hospital but I was so depressed about the situation I couldn’t bring myself to go. It wasn’t pretty and the OB eventually stopped trying new things and just put me back on the meds I was originally on. On to this week…

Hyperemesis is still kicking my ass so there is not much new on that front. I do have a new OB who is much more compassionate about my situation but unfortunately there is not much else that can be done at this point. There are a few other stronger meds we could try but all are above a category C so I would rather be at home on the couch taking safe meds then try to function more taking something unsafe. I have been able to keep some food down so chances are I won’t need to be fed through the PICC line which is a plus. So I am just here on the couch for at least another two weeks at which point I go back for a check up with the new doc.
