I can’t believe I’m going to admit this on my blog.
Actually, I can’t believe I did this in the first place. But I was desperate.
Yesterday around lunchtime I started feeling like POOP. I was achy, feverish, and just felt blah. I was pretty sure I had a fever but wanted to double check. However, the only thermometer we have is that one we use on Jake.
Here’s where I should mention that we’ve taken his temperature twice.
Seeing as how that was not an option for yours truly, I knew I needed to put it under my tongue, like in the dr’s office. But I was also concerned about the previous whereabouts of said thermometer. But again, I was desperate.
So I did it.
Let me preface this by saying I cleaned the thermometer with about 5 alcohol wipes before using but I just took the plunge and didn’t look back.
I guess this is what people call the sacrifices we make as moms???
So anyway…I had a fever. I began to worry because how in the world was I going to take care of my child when I felt horrible. Because Lord knows, I was not in the mood to bounce him up and down for hours to stop the crying. Luckily, I got a nap and felt a little better. It was perfect timing that I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and he confirmed my suspicions. I have mastitis. Hooray. I’m not going to go into any more detail if you don’t know what that is. Feel free to google. But now I’m on antibiotics, feel a little better, and can go on living my life like nothing has changed.
Not even sure why I decided to share this on my blog. Lack of better things to post about?
I AM excited to decorate for Christmas very soon. I’m even tempted to start before Thanksgiving (gasp!). And I never would’ve thought, but I’ve also got a good start on our Christmas shopping! Maybe I can finish before December after all…
OH AND I ALMOST FORGOT.
Sweet Baby Noah…who we prayed for earlier this summer…was born on Monday and HEALTHY! SVT-free! I got to go visit him and his parents on Tuesday and sweet thing was a light as a feather! I will post pictures as soon as I load them on the computer. But congratulations to Paula & Ben!
