Claire is still sick, but is well enough to be refusing her nap and driving me insane, so I guess that's something.
Dad is being released from the hospital. His stress test was great. I even talked him into staying with us for a few days so I can keep an eye on him. I told him we'd get something "heart-healthy" for dinner... Like pizza.
Maybe we'll get Chinese food. I hear Chinese people have excellently healthy hearts.
I called Bayer Pharmaceuticals to complain about the lack of information regarding normal vs. abnormal post-Mirena recovery. They basically said, "Yeah, we haven't really studied that," and I said, "Well, that's sort of negligent, don't you think?" so they took my name and my doctor's name and they're going to do... research or something, I don't know, but I feel better having complained.
I think I'm going to go to the health food store and get some Red Raspberry Leaf extract or tea. It helped cause Braxton-Hicks contractions when I was pregnant (to "tone" the uterus in preparation for birth), maybe it would help soothe my current symptoms?? Vitamin E made it worse. Iron had no effect. I'm on my own here. The manufacturer of the Mirena doesn't even know what I should do. We'll call it Pioneering Research, which will Certainly Help Millions of Women at Some Undertermined Future Point. Yeah.
I need a drink. It's 5:00 somewhere, right?
