Staying Positive....maybe

Ok, so after my sweet happy positive post, things went more down hill...MASTITIS! Really? Really?! My nips were already torn completely open and raw, and then I got mastitis. So all day Sunday (While our friends the Johns were visiting) I laid in my bed with a million blankets on my and still shivering, crying and in complete pain from head to toe, praying to die. Yea, ok, I'm extreme, whatever, but seriously, worst day of my life so far. I was not only feeling physical pain, but major guilt for not wanting to nurse my little guy, I switched to half and half (every other feeding on a bottle) and it has helped me heal a bit, so hopefully I can get back to exclusive breastfeeding soon. But anyway, there's my story of why I'm suddenly as crappy of a blogger as most of you...yea that's right, get on it people!!! GET OFF OF FACEBOOK!!!

Ok, 5 positive things
1. Tilynn stayed all afternoon yesterday to help me out!

2. Jase's bro and sister in law are here all week to help me out! (YAY!)

3. I'm down almost 30lbs because of my lack of appetite with the mastitis...oh and delivering a kid.

4. My hair hasn't started falling out yet!

5. My older 3 have all survived this last week!

Oh I'm so sorry! I had mastitis with Bergen and thought I was going to die! It was so much worse than the csec! Hope you get better fast!

But hello have you looked at your blog header? Super hott family comes to mind! Okay and I'm totally game for helping you cutify your blog. I can always use more pics of my sweet sweet boy!

Oh Kristal, I wish we were there to help out. I'd like to say, this too shall pass, but it doesn't seem to be. Endure! Love you.

Seriously no one warned me about breastfeeding! So far I haven't minded the pregnant part but the after stuff (especially the breastfeeding-not fun!)

Mastitis is no joke. My sister got it and I felt so bad for her. I have been wanting to come and visit but I have a virus right now and so...yeah. When I get all better I will definitely be by to see you and that adorable baby. After I am over this little bug I will let you know that my services are available for you to use at any time. Take care and I hope your boobies feel better soon!!

so sorry girl. what a pain! I haven't had to go through that but i've heard it's the worst. Yuck!! Mark is still nursing at 17 months, and showing no signs of slowing...so my boobs are being put through the ringer, too, just in a different way.

Glad you have help right now. How is having 4? I think next year I am gonna freak out since none of them will be in school yet.
