Home Again!

We're finally home!!!!!! Neena was discharged this afternoon at 6:00 pm. Diagnosis? Possible TIA which is sort of like a mini-stroke, she also may have thickened blood due to her pregnancy which created a small clot somewhere during our long bus ride (12 hours) on our recent Church ski trip. We have a follow-up visit with a Hematologist next week to go over all of her blood test results (18 total). We also have to go in to the Neurologist for an EEG which tests Neena's brain activity. All of these are precautionary test to further rule everything out. In short...Neena had a freak episode of some numbness which was most-likely caused by her pregnancy.

Neena is doing great and has been since we were in the ER. She's glad she's home and I'm glad she's well and at home. We'll have a OB/GYN visit possibly later in the week to check on the baby.

We're still asking for prayers that Neena's blood is not thickened, which would result in her having to take a shot once a week until the baby is born. We also ask for prayers on the health of our baby. We had to make a VERY difficult decision to have a CT scan of Neena's head...the Dr. said that the scan might possibly harm the baby. After speaking with the Baby doc and the ER doc we decided to have the scan. So pray that our baby wasn't affected!!!

More updates soon...for now, rest, in my own bed!

I am so glad you are home and that so far everything is coming back normal! I'm constantly amazed at the human body... expecially the pregnant human body... crazy things can happen. And when you're pregnant, you never know what's normal and what's not. I'm so sorry that y'all have had this scare. And I'm praying hard that all the tests and future tests come back normal, normal, normal. And praying hard for you, Neena and Baby Johnson that you will all be healthy, rested and happy! Love you all!
