Health Bulletin for Today

I’m doing much better now. Today I took my last antibiotic pill — hopefully the infection is gone for good. I’m nervous that I might start hurting again now that I’ve completed the course of drugs. I still have fluid in my abdominal cavity that shouldn’t be there, but it doesn’t seem to be an abscess. I tire easily. We’re waiting to hear what the OB says about my ultrasound — something about a possible blood clot per the technician. Doc says more CT scans are in my future. Mmmmm … barium. I am afraid sometimes.

I’m spending time getting to know my baby, now that I feel well enough to actually care for him. Hopefully in two days I’ll be breastfeeding again. Bottlefeeding + pumping sucks! Especially the pumping part. Asher is great — healthy and strong. He eats all the time. He’s really wonderful and pretty easy, so far. We’ve had a couple of easier nights (meaning he has slept more and eaten less during the night), so we’re hoping he’s adjusting his rhythms to better match ours. We took him to a friend’s house on Sunday to hang out with folks and he slept most of the time we were there. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to relax and rest, but also to be around loving friends and be social.

Dad is back from Hawaii with prezzies and a bad cold. Somehow it didn’t stop him from diving. I’m glad he didn’t stay home because of me.

    It was great that you made it to the party on Saturday and even better that all of the Wilsons got to spend the day after with us. I love those day afters and your boys are at the perfect age for them now. Ash is small enough that he was keeping the masses entertained and Lucas is old enough that he can entertain himself. Great timing!

    It was great to see you and your family. I loved holding little Asher.
