Oh my goodness mamas I have missed out on so much. I have been on the FB page a couple times and can always do a quick "like" and read updates one handed but I hadn't really had a chance to read up on everything here! As far as privacy goes on MDC, we can make this page private. Lots of the DDC are but this page wasn't created that way. Maybe if we contact Junebug who originally set up this page we can make it private??
The stomach flu hit our house over the weekend. All three of my older kids were puking on Sunday. Marcus and I stayed locked in the bedroom upstairs away from the germs. I usually have a stomach of steel and wasn't so worried about me but was worried about Marcus (even though I know he is BF and not likely to get it). On Tuesday DH got it. On Tuesday Marcus had some horrible looking infection in his eye....yellow, crusted shut. So, off to the doctor we went. Prescribed 5 days of antibiotic drops. He hasn't left the house so no one had an explanation of what it could be...just that he could have rubbed anything into his eye as no home is without bacteria!? Then on Wednesday I woke up with body aches and a fever. Even though I hated being sick I have to say that I slept almost all day yesterday in between nursing sessions. I have been SO sleep deprived that I was tired down to my bones and having a break like that to sleep was wonderful! Fever is gone today and besides feeling weak I feel pretty good. I have my fingers crossed that we are done being sick. We are usually such a healthy family. This whole thing threw me for a loop.
Natalie, I am so sorry that things didn't go as planned and that you are feeling angry (but I am glad you are feeling your feelings and not suppressing)! I have not really typed out my whole birth story as I am still processing mine too....so many things that did not turn out as planned (like that DH took NO time off work and his boss even called him in on his day off...he worked 55 hours the week his son was born!!). Glad you and Judah are home now.
