My OB called with the results of my blood test. HCG of 198, which is way too low to be 6 weeks along. This is likely an ectopic pregnancy. I have a follow up blood test tomorrow.
And now I’m scared. If the worst happens and I have to call an ambulance and be rushed to ER, who takes care of my littles? I’m home alone with them. Do they bring them in the ambulance? Do they leave an EMT behind to babysit until a relative shows up? I don’t want my babies to be traumatized. Should I be developing a just-in-case plan? Should I tell my husband to stay home with me till we get this settled? Am I being a paranoid ninny?
I’ve worked in healthcare and never heard of the single-caregiver-needing-emergency-care-when-kids-are-home thing. Certainly, there has to be protocol, right?
I’m just going to hope for now that I don’t have to figure this out the hard way. Fingers crossed.
