Yeah, it stinks.  Saturday I noticed a lot of redness, tenderness, and hot spots on my right breast.  I thought i was just engorged, but it had gotten worse and today i had flu like symptoms so I decided to call the Doctor.  Last night when I got home, I had chills and felt awful, waking up feeling even worse.  Not only is my breast in a TON of pain, I have had a fever all day - peaking at 103.  The dr. was surprised how hot I was.  I had to get blood work done and she sent me with an antibiotic.  If it doesn't get better in 48 hours, I will have to be admitted for it to be drained or cut out? I was confused about that.  Hoping it heals on its own.  That would really stink.
Thank goodness for a good friend who came by to watch them so I could go to the dr. and Mom for helping feed and get them to bed.  Justin is out of town and won't be back til late tomorrow night :(


  1. Been here sister. It really stinks. I remember I had to pump pretty much around the clock to move the blockage. I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Oh geez honey, I can't imagine what that feels like. Thankfully never had that. I'm so sorry to hear what you're going through, and with your hubs out of town ... hope it gets better asap!!
