I get sidelined!
It was a sobering day for me today.
(that means my eyes leaked - A LOT)
You see...I have issues.
(lots of them I might add)
But I'm talking about the medical ones.
I visited my OB doctor today.
Found out I have a serious condition.
It's called "PLACENTA ACCRETA"
Instead of explaining it in my own words,
this is what it means:
"Placenta accreta is a severe obstetric complication involving an abnormally deep attachment of the placenta, through the endometrium and into the myometrium (the middle layer of the uterine wall). There are three forms of placenta accreta, distinguishable by the depth of penetration.
The placenta usually detaches from the uterine wall relatively easily, but women who encounter placenta accreta during childbirth are at great risk of haemorrhage during its removal. This commonly requires surgery to stem the bleeding and fully remove the placenta, and can often lead to a hysterectomy or be fatal.
Placenta accreta affects approximately 1 in 2,500 pregnancies."
(no I'm not pregnant, but this is why I hemorrhaged after surgery when I lost the baby. The placenta had grown into my uterine wall. My doctor didn't know this is what I had at the time of my surgery. A month later, via ultrasound, she discovered that I still have part of the placenta attatched.)
So there you have it.
Another (big) bump in the road.
Surgery is Tuesday.
I could really use your prayers.
