If you aren't on my Facebook, you don't know the hell I've been put through for the past 8 days.

I won't go into too much detail but I'm asking for some thoughts and prayers.

My induction did not go as planned. William just wouldn't come out on his own. I couldn't even make it to 8cm after 48 hours. In the end I needed a c-section because I was far too tired to push should I make it that far and because it'd been 24 hours since my water was broken.

At the 23 hour mark after my water was broken, my temperature was taken and I had developed a fever. By hour 24 hours exactly, William was born and as soon as they had him cleaned up was rushed off to the nursery to be administered antibiotics. I was started on them either in recovery or once in my room. I was so incredibly tired by then I don't remember much.

On Tuesday I was told William's CRPs were high and he'd have to stay in the hospital from 7-10 days for more antibiotics. He'd gotten sepsis from my placenta becoming infected since my water had been broken for so long and he'd not been born.

Saturday is the 7th day but the bloodwork today showed the levels were over 1 (they were over 4 on Tuesday) and the safe level is below 1, the safest below zero where it won't even register. So he's figuring we'll need to stay here until Tuesday. I managed to ask him to do another test tomorrow just so I could see how much change there was. It was also so maybe, just maybe, there'd be a miracle and the levels would have dropped to the mark where they don't register.

So I'm asking for some T&Ps so that me and my little man may go home tomorrow. It would be greatly appreciated. William could finally get the IV taken off (though the wonderful nurse last night fixed it) and be done with everything.

Thanks everyone!

So the levels aren't quite in the safe zone but they've gone down a bit. Yesterday they were 1.4 and today they're 1.07. Safe zone being below 1 and extra safe being below 0 where it won't register.

If the doctor is super nice she may say that he can go home Monday if they do a test and the levels are below 0. If there's no test or the levels aren't quite there or the doctor wants to be extra safe, he'll go home Tuesday evening I believe. Wednesday morning at the latest. We'll see.

But last night was amazing! William actually slept for hours after each feeding. He's done that again today. No more being up every 30 minutes being fussy and wanting to nurse. It's so nice. I'm finally catching up on some sleep. I feel like I could sleep for years.

I think his fussiness is from the sepsis. My mom had it last November and I remember how awful she looked and felt so I can imagine how my little man must be feeling. His less fussy mood must be because the infection is going away.

Thanks again everyone!

Blah, no Monday discharge. I don't think they're even going to do blood work that day.

Nurse told me that they're going to give him the full dose of antibiotics on Tuesday, which means most likely not leaving until Wednesday morning since the last bit is given at 10 and take about an hour and a half.

Oh well, at least he'll definitely be good and healthy then.
