This weekend I battled the mastitis monster.  In the entire year that I nursed Andrea I never fell victim and knew little about it other than it was an infection in the breast.  What I discovered this weekend is that the infection is accompanied by a fever of over 101 degrees, convulsive chills, drenching episodes of sweating, aching muscles, a migraine headache, weakness, and skin so tender to touch that my own hair felt like needles.  Thank heavens it struck on a weekend when Paul was home to help me.  I'm happy to report I'm on the mend and think I've identified the cause (a new bra) and can hopefully avoid another infection.

So while I get my health and life back in order, please enjoy a couple of pictures of my children that make me smile.

  1. Cute pics. Masitis is the worst. I have had it several times. If you ever feel a hard spot or see a red spot rub it out in a hot shower as hard as you can. The pain is worth it! Good luck.

    And I didn't know you moved. I'm excited for you. Looks like a nice place. It's never good to be in basement apartments for too long :)
