Good thing I was able to sleep most of the day yesterday because Grunter woke up at 1:15am burning with fever and I was up with him until 4am. Right as I got to sleep….Whoop Whoop woke up. Same thing. I gave them both tylenol, nursed, slept with them on my chest…whatever it took.
Urgh, Just ONE More Thing
But Mommy here didn’t get ANY sleep until 7am when Chicken took over.
It’s better that I let her sleep when I can because then she can be full-on, 100% there for me when I need it. We also had HN put in some extra hours today so I could get a few hours of rest.
Thankfully, the boys were only having a normal reaction to their flu shots they received yesterday (I couldn’t go to their 9 month appt) and are mostly feeling themselves this afternoon–if just a tad bit crabbier.
The knots are still in my breast, there is a slight red rash and now I’ve got myself freaked out that maybe they are lumps of a different kind. Breast cancer runs high in my family and I am now paranoid.
I put in a call to my breast surgeon to see if they can do an ultrasound for me. I’m very hesitant to submit to a mammogram with the radiation and breastfeeding. “Some” say it’s OK, “some say it’s not. The jury is out.
I also called my OB–can’t see me for weeks. A new OB can’t see me until December or January!
And left a vm for my LC to see if she’s in the city next week and can come over for a house call.
SOMETHING has to work.
I hope tonight is a better night for us all.
We’ve got a Halloween party to attend tomorrow afternoon at the GLBT Center and more festivities planned for Sunday. I hope the boys don’t freak out in their costumes like they did for the photo shoot! I need some good photos of my little monsters!!
