  • Still alive. In a lot  pain and quite tired they will bring my beneficial soon. Don't know what all they did but I was in surgery for like 4 hours? The ob will tell me tomorrow. On a bunch of hardcore iv antibiotics. Also lasix for swelling.   and right now they're all liquid diet. 

    Clem doing ok.

  • @kboydbowman, I’m so sorry you had such a bad experience with that doctor. I hope your OB and the nurses taking care
    of you do much better. 
    Hopefully the infection will be gone now that they cleaned it all out and you have a much easier recovery.

  • Thinking of you for a quick recovery! So happy to hear that Clementine is doing good.
  • Ugh how awful. Here's hoping it's all taken care of and you start healing up properly!
  • Thinking of you- sorry that you had a jerk of a dr, I hope you are starting to heal up and feeling better with all the yuck cleaned out.
  • I’m sorry for that horrendous experience. I hope you complain! Yay for being closer to baby :)

    @kboydbowman oh no.. thinking of you and hope the rest goes smoother
  • So those of you that are already on my Facebook have been getting regular detailed updates, but for everyone else, my situation is turning into a malpractice lawsuit situation; I am not a litigious person, but I will end up coming to court, and I will win.  Series of poor decisions on the part of various doctors (and one incident of what can only be described as coerced physical assault), and I almost died as a result of the infection I was discharged with (I had told them something was wrong and asked to have the post C-section admission extended for a few days due to uncontrolled pain and a stinky/oozy incision scar, but was discharged only 42 hours after my surgery).  I'm still not out of the woods either.  I am documenting like crazy and once I'm a little more recovered I will absolutely be consulting with a lawyer(s).  My lawyer and doctor friends are also going to help me compile things.

    Currently, I'm still in the hospital for at least another 3 days, possibly longer if they can't get the infection(s) under control.  They had to reopen my uterus and essentially do a D&C and am not at high risk for rupture and accretia with any future pregnancies.  My C-section incision is reopened down the to the fascia and will remain open (with packing and wound vacuuming) until it heals on its own; whenever they send me home I will have home health care until the wound is healed.

  • It's awful what they are making you go through! It sounds like it's going to be a long process with lawyers involved. I hope you can find the best one available and it helps you and others in the future. You look like a super strong person and I'm sure you'll recover and win the battle!
  • Clementine is having unexplained bowel issues and is being transferred to a hospital in LA (about 2 hours from her) for likely surgery.  I am so not okay.

  • @kboydbowman I’m so sorry.  Stay strong for your little girl!  I hope the surgery is able to correct whatever is going on. 
  • Thinking of both of you :( 
  • @kboydbowman thinking of you both. Stay strong. 
  • @kboydbowman Oh my. I’m so sorry you two are going through so much. Will keep you both in our hearts and hoping for the best outcome. 
  • @kboydbowman I'm so sorry for everything you and baby Clementine are going through right now, I'm devastated that baby is being transferred so far away from you as you're struggling physically and mentally with everything you've been going through. You're both so strong, you'll get through this and I'm sending so much internet love your way. I hope the coming days start to look a little brighter, we're all absolutely pulling for you both!

  • Most of her bowel was necrotic and had to be removed. 20 cm section still viable.  Multiple ostomies.  She responded well to the surgery, but prognosis is fairly poor.  Next few days critical.  If she survives, will be on TPN for years and will likely eventually need bowel and/or liver transplant.

    I probably will never see my baby alive again and I am dying.

  • @kboydbowman I am so very sorry that this is happening. You and Clementine are constantly in my thoughts. I really hope things start to look up and you are able to find some peace and positivity right now. 
  • I’m so sorry @kboydbowman sending you guys strength 
  • Oh @kboydbowman I am so so sorry. I wish I could do or say more 💔
  • KurtniKurtni member
    So heartbreaking 😔 I’m so sorry that you cannot be with her right now, and so angry at your doctors for failing you to put you in the hospital in the first place.

  • I havent written anything... because in this time and space there is nothing to say. It is a horrible feeling to be out of control of not just yourself but your child. I know, you know, you are not alone, but it is okay to feel that way. This is a situation where you are allowed to be selfish with your sorrow, but when you feel you are being pulled too fully under seek out whatever/whoever makes you feel a little less awful.
