Thursday Night

Today has been a hard day.  A really hard day.  I'll be honest.  It's involved a lot of crying, probably mostly from hormones.
I got a diagnosis today.  I have a fungal infection that was in the umbilical cord...they found it because they run a pathology report on c-sections.  So I got started on a treatment today.  But I was feeling worse.  I kept getting high fever spikes and started having aches and pains all over.  My doctor called an internal medicine doctor and an infectious disease doctor to see what to do about me.  Right now, I'm a human pincushion.  I have had all sorts of lab work...with a lot more coming tomorrow.  I got a chest x-ray...and I may have a CT scan tomorrow....I'm not really sure right now.
Long story infection was not going away.  I am very sick right now.  They had to switch my medicne tonight to a new medicine that's not conducive to I have to pump and dump for the next several days....and Liam has to go on formula.  This has been the hardest thing for me....and the part I've cried over the most.  If I felt like a failure as a mother before....this has really iced the cake.
I will have to be at the hospital until at least Saturday...but longer if my fever continues to spike.  I have to go 24 hours without a high fever before they will release me.
Please pray for us.

Modern medicine has came a long way 55 years ago they didn't know what they do now. Get your strength back and it always takes a while for you to get the knack of breast feeding. Liam is very precious love that red hair. Love you
