Oh, and not that we really support much to do with Montgomery (kinda joking there, but mostly.... PLEASE GET US HOME! :) ).... we went to a Biscuits game last Thursday with some of Mike's old friends. We had fun, ate tons of junk food and Conner was even given a ball from the opposing team! At first his face was "Mom, a stranger gave me a ball... what do I do?!?!?" but soon, it turned into shear elation... and such can be see in this pic.
Random pic of the boys.
And finally... sleeping kids. Thank. You. God.

- using a breast shield (check)
- history of mastitis (check)
- use of breast pads (check)
- you're anemic (eh, half check.. my dr. once told me that most small framed women have anemic episodes, and I do)
- you've skipped some breastfeeding sessions (check, we've started foods now so Chase is eating a slightly smaller amount of milk)
The flu-like aches coupled with the throbbing red, rock-like thing that WAS my boob are the worst symptoms. Thank you Mr. Pain Meds for your assistance. I've also started antibiotics.
This is probably all tmi for most of my readers... oh well... suck it up! But for those nursing mommies out there that've never experienced mastitis heed this warning: LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! If you feel flu-like, feverish, have a hot/warm spot on the breast, CALL YOUR DOCTOR! It will not go away on its own and can become abcessed.
Time for a nap.

Update on being Bham bound: we've begun the house hunt, have spoken with a realtor and Mike's regional manager is backing him for the position. No other managers are interested either ... So here we go! Thanks for all the prayers/jujus/vibes/whatevers as well as the general overall support in the fight to get my butt back HOME! Oh Birmingham, how much I miss the city!!!!!
