Jimmie is doing great, but his mommy- not so much. )-: Rachael is suffering with mastitis (breast infection)! It came on fast last night and has progressed to the point today that she has called the doctor and has been set up with some antibiotics. Justin brought Rachael and Jimmie into town so they could have more access to help. They are staying with Justin's parents Rod and Kathy. Justin's grandma Paula is staying there right now as well so there are lots of willing hands to help with Jimmie. My mom has been there for hours as well doing TKM on Rachael.
Justin came over a little bit ago to pick up some supplies for the night for Jimmie. A bed (co-sleeper) that I had for my kids when they were babies and some other things. Rachael is still able to nurse him and she has plenty of milk pumped if she feels too ill to feed him.
I am unfortunately very experienced with mastitis and have passed on a bunch of wisdom I got from lactation consultants and the La Leche League, but if any of you experienced mothers have wisdom you'd like to share feel free!
We would appreciate your prayers for Rachael's quick healing. Little Jimmie needs his mommy strong and healthy.
