This is what I mean by dependent facial edema. I obviously slept on my right side. Even my lips look huge! The dilemma this morning was whether make up is worth it at this point. I think make up is always worth it unless you can't see your eyelashes, then it is a waste of mascara :)
I think I got admitted at a good moment, because not only is my swelling epic, but my blood pressures are just not budging, despite the meds. This morning it was 155/102. The labetalol is not touching me. I am guessing they will probably increase it today.
I had such a hard time falling asleep! The edema in the legs is giving me the restless legs feeling, and it took hours to finally fall asleep at 1:30, only to wake up again at 4 am for vitals. Even in the middle of the night, while asleep, my BP was 144/90. I think the high pressures make me a bit insomniac.
I miss Emma's lovely smile in the mornings when she wakes up next to me. Sweet little girl!
