Three weeks later, I was admitted back into the hospital and separated from my baby girl. Turns out, I had placenta left inside of me (that explains the breastfeeding issue). After the D&C procedure, I returned back to my hospital room where my symptoms worsened. (I'll spare you the gory details.) I was diagnosed with an E.Coli infection.
After being hooked up to machines, attached to IVs, and having a nurse tend to my bathroom emergencies, I remember thinking, "things can't possibly get any worse”.
Well, I was so wrong! Two days later, my mom and mother-in-law came into my room with tears. That's when I found out the unexpected. My baby girl was admitted into the hospital with bacterial spinal meningitis from salmonella.
