All is well
Yesterday morning Violet had the D & C. She is recovering very well. Actually better than we expected. I was very pleased to find out that the OB/GYN that will be doing the procedure was my regular OB/GYN. I am very fond of her as a doctor. Dr. O*** was a god send. Before the procedure she spoke about how our midwife had been so excited for us and was truly sad that this had happened. It was clear that we were actual people and not another number in our huge OB/GYN practice. I cannot express how fortunate V and I are to be blessed with our OB/GYN practice. Oddly enough I had my annual pap with DR. O scheduled for yesterday morning at 9:30 am, (this had been scheduled over two months ago). Well V’s D & C was to happen at 8:30am, so I would not be able to make it to my annual appt. When I went up to let her staff know, the receptionist at our midwifes check-in overheard me speaking to Dr. O’s receptionist and came over asking what happened. She was so truly concerned and said such kind words. The major thing that stuck out to me was when she said “we were rooting for you guys”. I would expect this kind of reaction from a smaller practice in a more gay friendly area. However, we live in the bible belt and do not normally experience such supportive reactions from relative strangers.
I have not written since we found out that Poppy was not meant for us. I have so much to say and really want to get it out on this blog, because I do not want to forget this experience. I just have not found the emotional energy to regurgetate it all. This holds true still, even after the fact thatV and I have rested at a fairly comfortable place in regards to the end of the pregnancy. It is simply to overwhelming to try to organize all the feelings, emotions and thoughts that have accompanied this whole experience.
Ladies, I’m so glad to hear that Violet is doing well, and that you’re surrounded by such wonderful practitioners. I hope that they continue to help you heal throughout this experience.
I’m thinking of you both and am so glad you had a great doctor support around you.
So sorry you had to go through this, but I’m glad your caregivers are as supportive and wonderful as they are. I’m thinking of you both.
