this is going to get REALLY personal

this weekend was the father and sons camp out for our ward. tristan was so excited to go. so he and jeff left friday morning for their journey. last night a sweet and super fun girl in our ward had a really fun "while the boys are away the girls will play" party. i had the best time! it was really the most fun i've had in months. the girls swam and had the best time and it was just so good for my soul to be with them in this really great and fun environment. we haven't had real fun together in quite some time now.
the woman that came were some of the most fun women in my ward and i was just so in the happy zone. it was exactly what i needed. i have been feeling GREAT and finally well and i was so happy to tell that to everyone who asked how i was doing. IT FELT SO GOOD!
things changed for me at about 2 am. i woke up with the normal urge to pee like all pregnant women do, except to my dismay it wasn't happening. i chose to go lay back down and about an hour later tried to go again. i started to panic as my second attempt failed and tried a few other choice thing to get the job done. let me say that i had a TON to drink at the party and i was now in a TON of pain. with jeff not home and my girls asleep i realized that i was in a really bad situation. i stood in the shower cause i knew that would get me going and still nothing. i fell asleep for an hour and when i woke up the pain was unbearable and my body had started to shake uncontrollably.
i went to the hospital and because i was shaking so hard when i got there they sent me right back and put a catheter in me. i had about a liter and a half of fluid in my bladder. NO WONDER IT HURT SO BAD! to keep this from going much longer i'm just going to say that i have to keep the catheter in for a week they don't know what's really going on but i have an idea. there is no infection so far. i'm really uncomfortable and pretty much a basket case. i know this sound a bit like begging but PLEASE keep me in your prayers i could really use them right now.
i have some amazing and willing friends in my life, some that i have know for years that i can count on for anything and love them more than they will ever understand and someone new that has proven to me time and time again over the last few weeks that she is here for me and happy to be. :) today i put those amazing ladies to use. THANK YOU more than i can express. christine you will never know how much it meant to me to have you there with my jenna on her special day. i was secretly hoping you would stay with her. you are like a mother to my kids and i'm sure she appreciated it too.

holy moly stacy you have been through the wringer!
this happened to my mom when she was pregnant with my sister alisha-baby was sitting wrong on her bladder, blocking her from going. it was horrible for her. i was 12 and remember being scared. not being able to pee is freaky!!!
thankfully after a day being watching in the hospital she was fine. i hope you are fine soon too!

Oh man Stacy, I totally feel for you! That's got to ahve been the worst feeling ever to not know what to do in the middle of the night with your husband gone. I'm so glad you got to the hospital and that they are getting you figured out. Good luck and you'll be in my prayers.

I think you need to come home to your Mother.

Oh Stac,
I just sit here with my head in my hands. I can't help, I can't be there, I can't do the things a sister's supposed to do for her sister. I hate this! I'm glad that you have all these good friends around you because I suck! I'm so sorry.
