Downhill Fast

Today's been a good day, pleasant in many ways. Of course, I did get to hear Tobin and Shav perfect the art of synchronized crying a time or two; but that's to be expected during this time of adjustment, I guess. Anyway, I was feeling pleased with life...until this afternoon when I started feeling an unusual amount of pain in my left breast. (Yes, I said "breast"...just keepin' it real here.) In an astonishingly short period of time, I seem to have developed a breast infection. I didn't expect this particular setback right now, especially because Shav nurses so often that I somehow thought he would keep the breast empty of milk and not susceptible to an infection. But wowsers, this hurts! Thankfully, my dad got me on an antibiotic already; and I'm planning on an early bedtime tonight. Hopefully, it won't take too long to lick this thing.

At least I've got a little sweetheart to think about and adore while I recuperate! :)

OUCH! I hope it clears up quickly...and we know all about synchronized crying around here!

Oh no! I had a breast infection 3, yes three, that is no less that THREEEEEE times with Hannah. Given that I was only able to nurse her for 4 months, that's a lot in a short amount of time. It seemed like it was directly related to me getting run-down and not enough rest. They are not fun, but they do clear up. I hope you can get some more rest.

Shav is so cute and bright-eyed. He looks like he has chubby cheeks already.

Oh how not fun. I hope you get better really soon!

Oh! I was up for hours and hours one night when Sarah was an infant, in tears, taking hot showers, trying to figure out what was wrong. Sorry to hear that, but SO glad your dad was able to help. I think of you so often these days in your busy household.

Oh, you poor thing. I will be praying you recover soon.

Have a blessed weekend!
