Ugh...

Weekends are wonderful. The time to not have to rush out the door in the morning, hang out with the boys and Dan, and catch a breath. We were looking forward to a great weekend - sunshine, farmer's market, dinner at a friend's house, and the Obama rally downtown. Should have been great.

Until I woke up Saturday morning feeling like I had a major flu bug. Achy, tired, headache, chills fever - the whole shebang. After a few ibuprofen, I took the boys to the farmer's market, figuring that things would get better. They didn't. By the time I got home, there was a telltale red welt on my chest. No flu - "just" mastitis.

In my 2.5 years of breastfeeding, this was the first time this has happened. Thank goodness - it's really miserable! Compounded by our unusually high heat, I've been pretty out of commission. (I did go to the friend's house anyway, and that was the bright spot of it all!) I'm even home again tomorrow. Really, it sucks.

I started on antibiotics today - hopefully tomorrow I can post a glowing report of incredible healing. Thanks for letting me vent!
