It's Getting Hot in Here

Today was a rather challenging day.  The doctor believes I have developed a uterine infection.  During the night my fever spiked and when the doctor came in to check on me he put me back on IV antibiotics.  Before they could hook me up to the IV, my fever spiked again and I got a bad case of the shakes and chills.  My pulse jumped up to 160.  They quickly got me hooked up to the IV and have antibiotics pumping every 6 hours.  My fever broke around 6 pm and with that my pulse went down to 100.  The nurse did check my temp at 3:00 a.m. and it was back up to 102, but then at 4:00 a.m it was back down to 100.  I was very fearful that this setback would keep me from seeing the babies tomorrow, but they have assured me that I can enter the NICU at 3:00 p.m. when I have officially been on antibiotics for 24 hours.  Tim has taken so many pictures and even showed me video of the babies, but I am very ready to stand next to them and see how much they have already grown and changed.  My mom spent the day at the hospital and we had several of Tim's family members stop by.  Thank you Nina and Juls for all of the goodies!!!
