A tough week

Boy has this been a tough week for us. As I posted earlier, Noelle was miserable on Wednesday because of her vaccines. She really cried like she was hurting all day and into the evening. She did not nurse well because she would repeatedly stop nursing to cry. I suppose that the decrease in nursing along with my increased stress caused me to come down with mastitis on Thursday morning. I spent a good deal of the day in bed racked with chills and then with a 103.3 degree fever. Lance had to take care of Noelle and Connor. I'll spare you all the details, but today both Noelle and I are much better. In fact, Noelle was better by Thursday morning, and she has done just fine enduring my illness. Because of my decreased milk supply, she is nursing VERY frequently, which means less sleep, but I am very happy and thankful for how well we are doing. However, now Connor is congested and has a bad cough. I suppose if it's not one thing, it's another.

I don't think that I have ever been sicker than when I had mastitis! Sorry that you had such a trying week!

Wow, Laura. I admire your fortitude. Read Lisa's latest blog entry if you haven't and remember that this is yet another instance where the Lord clearly wants to show you your need for Him. We missed you yesterday.
Love, Keri

I'm sorry-sounds like you have had a rough time! I can relate, although thankfully I haven't had mastitis. Hope this week is going better for you.
