warning: this post contains much talk of breast feeding
Ever since my milk came in, homeboy has had a hard time latching on and the considerable pain became crazy pain. I just thought I had to tough it out since everyone said I would have pain in the first few weeks. Well, about a week after coming home from the hospital, I got chills and a high fever. My midwife said I most likely had mastitis (a breast infection) and put me on an antibiotic. I was very allergic to this drug, however, and broke out in an all body rash. 24 hours later, I still had a high fever and it was just getting higher. When it got to 104.9 we went to the emergency room and they ended up admitting me. We were there for three days. After lots of IV antibiotics (a different one thankfully) I'm on the road to recovery! So, that was our first two weeks of being parents. Whew! And because of all the crazy shenanigans, I haven't really had a chance to take many pictures of our little guy. I missed his one week picture for instance, which pretty much breaks my heart, but I took a really cute two week picture that I'll share soon. But here are a few cell phone pictures to tide you over. Enjoy!
