Remember those antibiotics I took about 2 weeks ago? Well those bad boys do more than just clear out ‘bad’ bacteria. They also upset the balance of (ahem) ‘healthy’ bacteria. So let’s just say I had an ‘itch’ to get to my OB’s office yesterday. I go to a practice that rotates the doctors, so it’s been a while since I saw my favorite OB. She burst into the room and enwrapped me in the warmest hug ever. She told me that her staff could not understand why she was so thrilled to see a patient to which she replied “this is Jaded!”
The last time I remember seeing her was for the 6 week follow-up after Daniella died. It was the first time I broached the TAC route with her and she was nothing short of encouraging about it. She did not know about my current pregnancy or that I actually had the TAC placed until she read my chart. She was beaming and looked like she was about ready to cry. We discussed the obvious current needs and I told her that although early I was wondering if there was anyway to ‘request’ or plan for a specific doctor to perform my delivery and so I asked her to do it. She said that this baby is my miracle and that she would be honored to do so. She asked for information on Dr. Davis to offer to patients that may need it. I’m so glad that I go to such a progressive practice. I offered that I would not mind talking to any patients that may want the perspective of someone that underwent the TAC as well. As she walked out of the office she turned around and said, “You made my day”.
It was just wonderful to see her again, wonderful to be so far removed in time from the horror of our last visit together.
