Back Online

This is a short blurb to say that we had a great holiday (more to come on that later) and that we are now moved into our new apartment (more on that later) and that we just got our internet back up and running. Right now, I have a prayer request for all those prayers out there. I came down with mastitis the day before we left for Florida (before Christmas) and it seemed to clear up while we were there. When we got back to NC... it came back .. but worse.. running a temp of 101 in a matter of 15 minutes. This time it was accompanied by a case of thrush in both girls due to the antibiotics I had been on. I went to the doctor and got back on antibiotics - a different kind this time. Seemed to get better for about a day.. then .. worse still. Today I went back to the doctor in the hopes that they could help me figure out how to get rid of this mess..... the news was not what I had hoped for. They have two theories this time; either the bacteria I am afflicted with is abnormal and was not reacting favorably to the new antibiotic....OR.. I have an abscess and will have to see a surgeon right away. SO, I am taking one antibiotic 4 times a day on an empty stomach.. and another 4 times a day with a meal..loading up on probiotics so that my "gut" doesn't lost all it's good bacteria .. and I have to see the doctors again in 48 hours and if there is not significant improvement.. I will be headed off to see a surgeon that same day. At the same time I am treating the girls for their thrush at least 4 times a day. It has cleared up but we don't want it to come back. Not to mention running a fever constantly and breaking that fever constantly, plus I still have to feed my little girls and do all the regular stuff .. and my house is not quiet put together yet though it is SO close. All this to say, if you are a prayer....please add me to the list! I am in tremendous amounts of pain and that pain only gets worse when the girls have to feed. I am praying that this horrific amount of meds will start to make a difference. I really want to be able to nurse my girls but if this is nature's way of letting me know it's time to stop I am ready to do that..but I can't stop until I am better..... I am stuck in a vicious cycle of sorts. Anyway... I have lots and lots to write about and so many lovely pictures to show.. but for now... I am just trying to make it to tomorrow and praying that surgery will not be on the table on Thursday. Despite it all we are in good spirits around here... chocolate chip cookies ...nuff said right? :)

I've been anticipating your next post, but wasn't expecting bad news :( You've got my prayers coming and if you need anything, please give a call! I hope to hear you are much better very soon!

See, I needed to read your post before I sent you a message...not the other way around. Prayers are going up. Let me know what you find. Love you and hang in there.

Dear, dear Sarah, I had it with Judy and had to give up nursing when she was only one month old. Your girls will do fine on the bottle if necessary. You have done so well to nurse them for 6 months. Take care of yourself. I will have you in my prayers. May God continue healing you. May the medicine work quickly. May your pain subside. May God's comfort surround you body, mind and spirit. Glad you are safely in your new apartment. Love, hugs and kisses, G-Grandma
