So, the last week or so has been a little daunting. I ended up with an infection (called mastitis) in my right nursing unit (a.k.a. boob) and haven’t felt that sick in quite a while. Funny how just a little, localized infection gives you a fever and makes you feel just like you have the flu with the achiness and all! Thank God Tim was able to leave work early last Friday to cart me to the doctor so I could procure the much needed antibiotics to fight it off.
It started with pain earlier in the week, while nursing Gavin and by Friday morning I felt like I had been hit by a Mack truck! Fortunately I was able to pump through it and am still successfully nursing the little man. I felt better by Saturday afternoon so the stuff they gave me was fast-acting! You can’t keep a woman with two small children down – no way!
If anyone is wondering – we don’t start Gavin’s P.T. until a week from today, so there’s no update on that yet. He has been turning his head more the other way, but the actual shape of it still looks the same, so we’ll see what they say next week.
No pics tonight – I actually have not taken any of Gavin since the bumbo chair. I missed an opportunity to scrapbook this weekend since I was sick and haven’t had a chance to really do any work since Gavin was born so I am feeling really behind. I hope I can get some work done soon and try to catch up.
