Yep, that is right. I’ve got some drama to deal with. Ok, I shouldn’t say it is really drama but it is all about me. Ah, these wonderful kids really did a number on me physically. Let’s start from the beginning.
Some of you know I have been battling recurring mastitis. Something I don’t really like to talk about because I get the whole, “Why don’t you quit?” line from people. The truth of the matter is Ian isn’t ready to wean and sometimes as a parent, you do what you have to do to provide. Sure, he is almost 15 mths old BUT he is also the babe that is most susceptible to getting sick and it affecting him greatly so with that said, we are still truckin’. He only nurses twice a day, which is fine by me. I love the cuddle time. Don’t worry, the girls get PLENTY of mommy time throughout the day.
Back to the topic. Sorry about that. Recurring mastitis. I think that my 1st bout from back in Feb was not treated correctly. Nothing against Dr. A’s nurse but from everything I have gathered, treatment should be 10-14 days and I only got 7 days worth so of course the mastitis came back again in March. Same course of treatment. Then again in April, May and now June. Hmft. What gives? I decided it was time for a 2nd opinion.
I went to my GP this time. I also went in armed with information as to why *I* thought I was getting it over and over again. She is a smart lady; I tell ya. She beat me to every single thing (more…)
