...and it's not over yet.
Thursday I came down with some kind of horrid illness. Friday it was a little worse. Today, a fever was added. I finally broke down and took some Robitussin (nursing approved). That was a big deal because I am so not the self medicating type! Thankfully, through it all I have had a very supportive mother-in-law who entertained AJ at her house during the day and a husband who has waiting on me in the evenings. I'm pretty good when I'm sick. I'm not a big complainer and usually trudge on through whatever ails me. Today, however, I spent most of the day in bed. Which was nice. I'm trying not to let myself feel guilty about not doing anything around the house because I AM sick after all.
The terrible part of the whole thing is that I've barely been able to have my Little Belle by my side (so to speak). She's had to spend most of her day in the swing or co sleeper. Besides nursing and the brief 5 or so minutes she was high on my shoulder away from my face (that bonding was the highlight of my day!) she's been as far away from my germs as possible. I hate it. She's practically been attached to me for the last 3.5 months. And a lot of the times I'm literally wearing her. I'm as spoiled by her cuddling as she is by mine. I love when she's fussing and I pick her up and she falls right to sleep. She just needed Momma's touch.
On a positive note, AJ's had a ball this weekend! She's got to spend a lot of extra time with her Grandmomma, whom she adores!
Here's to a better tomorrow!
