Ok so one evening, Richard and the kids, dogs, and I are all hanging out in the backyard. Well DF was complaining about a masquito biting him lol. And I was like well, at least I'm not getting eaten up like usual. LOL. But the next day I noticed a bite on my right ankel and it looked kinda infected and I showed DF and hes like just leave it alone.
So anyhoo I do for a couple days. So I'm cleaning and playing with the kids like usual and Im like wow, everytime I take a step my ankel hurts so bad(this is the fourth day after the bite). So I finally stop and pull up my pant leg and my ankel was HUGE! It was sooo infected looking and it started to(TMI!!) ooze this weird kinda bloody puss stuff. Eww I know, sorry. So I of course made an appt and and went in that same day. The dr says its cellulitus(sp???). And when she says this at first I'm feeling kinda offended. LOL. But what is means is that its a bacterial infection. So they gave me an antibiotic but I have to stop BFing Rachael while I'm on it(which is for 10 days). So we decide to give her formula and I pump and dump. Also the dr says that if I run a fever to goto the hosiptal or if I see red streaks going up my leg. That it means that the infection has gone into the bone. She was saying how its good that I came in when I did, and didnt wait anymore(which btw is what DF wanted to do even the day I made my appt...he said sorry after lol).
So I go back for a check up a couple days later and they put me on the other anitbiotic(another 10 days for that one). THEN it finally starts to get better. It begains to ooze again(which is a good thing). But then the scab came off and I had a hole in my ankel!!
But the anitbiotics helped and its all better now. Unfortunately my milk supply went down even though I tried to keep it up. So I have been Bfing and supplementing for the past couple of weeks now.
AND I have been feeling crappy lately. Like nausea on and off. But no fever. And it isnt stopping either. SOOOO I will be testing soon to see if I got a taste of that preggo water. LOL.
