Good Morning Everyone,
I hope you have had a great week, and are looking forward to the fun events around central Scotland this weekend.
Bathgate has the Pipe Band Championships, and it is also the Edinburgh Marathon this weekend.
I wanted to write to you all to thank you for the support over the last few months as I got through the last term of my pregnancy, and although I had hoped that I could continue to work up until Saturday 25th of May, it seems that my insistence to push on has caused a few more issues than I would have liked.
On Wednesday May 22nd I started having some health issues, and after trying to resolve them with my local healthcare practitioners, I ended up in the hospital and being admitted for more monitoring and tests.
Although my symptoms eased off on the Thursday, they are still of a concern so I will receive ongoing tests and monitoring every few days now until the Baby finally makes her arrival.
I have been allowed to come home but ordered to rest, and take it as easy as possible.
The good news is that baby is lovely and healthy, it's just mother incubator that is starting to fail.
I want to first apologize to anyone who may have had an appointment scheduled with me Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Caitlin has been attempting to contact everyone since Wednesday night to update them on the status of their appointment. Our first goal is to ensure that your original appointment can be covered by Caitlin, however if that is not possible we are attempting to reschedule for the first available appointment that is suitable to your needs.
I feel terrible that I have had to cancel some appointments, and can only apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing people, but at the moment my health has become a priority.
I hope that we will have some news regarding the baby in the next few days/weeks and then we can start to plan my return to the clinic.
I am sure you will all be in very capable hands with Caitlin during my leave.
If you have any issues and would like to contact me, I can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding.
