Sorry I am so slack...I have good reason though

I have been dealing with a nasty uterine infection and the pain has been unreal. I went to the ER on Friday and that is when I was diagnosed. I woke up that morning and couldn't move. My body hurt so badly. Clayton had to give me a Percocet and then move me himself by pulling my legs over the edge of the bed. At the time, I was both engorged with milk and had to pee really badly. It was a freakin' nightmare. After the pill kicked in and I was able to stand up, we headed out the door to the ER. The doctor that I saw was great as were the nurses. He checked me and told me that I had a tear on my cervix (yowsa!). He ran lots of bloodwork and did a urine test. Everything was fine so that is when he swabbed my cervix to test for infection. Unfortunately we still don't know the definite results because it takes a few days to run those tests in the lab. I see my OB today so she will hopefully know the answer. I have been doing better but I just had a relapse about 30 min. ago. I was taking a bath and began having the severe abdominal pain again. Sigh....Please Lord, heal me. I will post an update as soon as I know anything.

On top of all this, my kiddos both have fifth's disease. Emerson threw up his cereal this morning and is running a low grade fever. Both kids have the signature rash on their faces. Egad.

How Absolutely Horrible! I am so sorry you are going through this. And to top it all - taking care of sick kids while you're sick is a nightmare!

I hope you'll feel better quickly! Will this effect your ability to pump milk especially since it will be loaded with anitbiotics or whatever medicine you are taking?
