ooohh boy, has it been a week.
I have had these horrendous headaches leaving me weak, nauseated and unable to function ever since last Saturday. I have somehow made it through the days near comatose but then just go to bed as soon as I was able and sleep for 12 hours until I wake again to the pounding of my head. I could stomach MAYBE one meal a day. The first few days I figured it was just a migraine, then it just got weird. I started thinking I might have a tumor or something. A WEEK, of headaches? ME? (And no, I am no hypochondriac) So then, on top of the pain was the worry about what was WRONG with me, and hating that I wasn't eating well enough for a nursing mother to be eating and stressing about not being all I ought to be/want to be for my husband and children . And then, of course, wondering if I was going to die.
And on top of that, Judah cherub has turned Judah bear for the past two weeks on account of teething (as is evidenced by his clawed up face). Poor guy. He can be downright inconsolable, which to a Mother whose head is already pounding.... is not a cool thing.
And oh yes, let's not forget the nursing malfunctions going on. Let's just say....blisters. In places there shouldn't be blisters. OUCH. 'Nuff said.
So this past week has been one in which the only goal was to SURVIVE.
But we are all doing much better now that :::
- I managed to get a freezer teether made for Judah bear which gives him a bit of relief,
- that my entire body is slathered and smeared with Lansinoh and Vitamin E (only slight exaggeration.)
- I finally went to the doctor yesterday. (See? I told you I am no hypochondriac!) and got a medicine regime to follow. (It ISN'T a tumor.)
Which is a GREAT thing since Sunday just happens to be a birthday to the worlds greatest and my only, and he deserves a FEAST. And THAT he will get, along with some pretty swell gifts ifIdosaysomyself.
So Now you know why I haven't blogged or returned emails this week but I am now and will presently. Foto Friday will be up and running a bit late today as the old linky system I used is now charging money (rats) so I need to look for a replacement.
And for those who have tried calling me-Mom. Elizabeth. ----> Our phone has been out of commission but I have been too ill to call them to come fix it. Matt called 'em yesterday and they should be coming sometime today. SO. That is the story.
