Mama's Don't Get To Be Sick

As I was told by the wisest lady I know, "Mama's don't get to be sick." The other day, I was telling Adam how hard it must be when mothers get sick because you still have to nurse the baby and take care of everything else too. Well, my time came sooner than I expected. I woke up in the middle of the night yesterday feeling very flu-like. I knew I hadn't been out of my house very much for the last 3 weeks. So there wasn't much chance that I had caught the flu from someone else. I got both types of flu shots while I was pregnant too. So, I spent the morning trying to take care of Sara Beth while my fever went up and my skin crawled. After a few hours, I knew I had to put my pride aside and call in some help. My sweet in-laws spent the rest of the day seeing to Sara Beth while I rested. Bless their hearts! Turns out, I have a case of mastisis which requires a round of antibiotics to rememdy. The medicine must be doing it's job because I'm feeling much better today! No fever, no aching, no headache or skin crawling. I'm able to take care of my baby girl again! So, even though "Mama's don't get to be sick." Sometimes they do, and when they do, they are super grateful for any help they can get.

Little angel...that is how I think of you! The other thing I forgot to mention is that there is no "pride" when it comes to your baby! You do whatever, whenever, however, and with all of the help that you can get! Bethany says often, "mama, it takes a village.." I am always so thrilled to be able to help my kids out in any way that I can and I'm sure that your folks all feel the same! Anyone that acts like "super-mom" is just acting or fooling themselves!! Everybody needs help and the wise seek it out before they crash and burn. (I am preaching to myself!!!) Remember, we Nanas get to go home and get in the tub! ha! Love you sweetie! Continue on your're doing GREAT!
