Feeling better

Ashley's  on the mend  and Taylor seems fine. We really got off easy I guess.  I on the other hand  had my 4th maybe 5th case of mastistis I'm losing count now but it's very draining and makes me want to start bottle feeding but only  as long  my  fevers lasts.  As in that state  I barely have the energy needed to change a  diaper thankfully  it only  lasted 24 hours and by sunday morning was up and about.  It's harder to bare with school drop off and pick up days.  I hope I've seen the last of it.   I'm taking antibotics now myself so hopefully I'll  get rid of this problem for good.

On a good note this is the 4th week of kindergarten and Ashley's doing great! The speech therapist and augmentative communication team are coming to meet with Ashley and her teacher this wednesday and it sounds like the school may get her some augmentative device to use in school.

We also have new neighbours moved in next door and they have a boy who is ten which my older boys are thrilled about they just moved to canada from bejing China in June of this year.  My boys were introducing him to nintendo they were surprised to learn he never played that in China.  He has been telling them about his home in china too. The boys seem very fascinate by the differences which there are many.  It's nice that they have a new friend.  He can ripstik too so he is giving James some much needed lessons.

I picked up this book today a good friend mentioned it to me and I can't wait to read it.

My Stoke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor
It's the story of a 37 year old brain scientist that experienced a massive stroke.

Yay for good days at school and new friends. Glad the kids are getting on the mend.

ACK for mastitis. I am so fortunate to never have had to deal with that with five breastfed kids. I can only imagine how painful it is. I'm sorry you are dealing with that...

When you have time, read The Shack...nuts I can't think if the author's last name and my Mom took my book, but it is a very insightful book.

I seem to remember you has seen this doctor before (?? not sure tho). Even if you did tho, if memory serves, his clinic is always worth another visit... if you keep developing the mastitis, it could be that something else is going on with his latch or something else?

Hey Sue, thanks for the tip .. i went to my family doctor a got some antibiotics they are helping! I've never seen Dr Jack except on TV he is amazing isn't he. I don't have a breast feeding problem except I think it's maybe not enough i feel like Taylor is ready for some cereal i may try this weekend.
