More loss

  1. I seem to be surrounded by death lately. With my experience losing a mother the other week, I would have been just as happy to not have any negativity while at work.

    Unfortunately, it didn't last long. My last night at work, we lost 2 baby girls. The first was a twin born to a cocaine pos mother with no prenatal care. After doing an US to determine babies positions, we discovered the second twin was dead. It's possible it was TTTS since there was discordant growth and there was one placenta. Baby A seems to be doing fine.

    Our second loss just a few hours later was a fetal demise of 38 weeks. Mom went into the office for c/o abd pain. US discovered the demise. She came in to be induced and delivered a perfectly formed baby girl with the prettiest face, and a triple nuchal cord.

    I really hope that next week is nothing but sunshine and happiness.

    Carla,

    ((((Hugs))))

    We are told in schoold - I'm still a student - that it's hard, but you are not supposed to get "attached" to your patients. Unfortunately, we are human and we still have feelings.

    I hope you have a better week. My thoughts are with you.
