This week was a little rough for me. In the middle of the night on Friday, I woke up feeling like someone had punched me in the breast. Then Saturday morning, my whole body hurt and I hadn't done anything to warrant that. I took ibuprofen in the morning and again at lunch. In the afternoon, Hunter and I sat outside for awhile because it was really nice, and then when I got up to go inside, I got really cold. I went upstairs to lay down and looked at my breast, and it was bright red. So I knew I had mastitis, which is an infection that makes you feel like you have the flu. I ended up talking to my doctor and we got antibiotics, but I felt really run down Sunday and Monday. I finally started feeling back to normal Tuesday. In fact, I was feeling back to my normal self from months ago! These past few weeks especially, I have been completely exhausted in spite of sleeping 9 hours solid. I think this infection was festering in me for awhile. So I'm kind of glad that it happened when it did and that I'm feeling better now.
Hunter has been off the reflux medication fully for one week. I think I'll give it a couple of days and then try to give him some cheese and see how it goes. It's been hard finding things for him to eat because I just don't feel like he loves anything except for his crackers and bread. Maybe this is payback for when I was such a picky eater. He will cram a bunch of food in his mouth, like a hamster, and then if there's something in there he doesn't like, he just won't swallow it. We gave him hamburger last night, well, unseasoned ground beef, and he stuck it in his mouth with other stuff and then started getting really fussy because he was stuck. He would not swallow it. Shamus ended up having to put his finger in there and swipe all the food out of his mouth. Of course, Hunter was not happy about that. I would say dislikes are hamburger so far. Food he's ok/eh with are beans, avocado, noodles, cheerios, sweet potatoes, and scrambled eggs. Foods he likes are cinnamon apples and pears, and foods he loves are the flavored rice crackers, whole wheat bread, and puffs. He will eat the crackers over everything else. I made him a little mini pizza this week, too, and he did ok with it. He's never eaten anything with that many spices on it. It was just pizza crust and sauce that I baked. He stuck it in his mouth, pulled it out and looked at it, repeated that a few times, and then put it in his mouth again. Unfortunately a lot of the pizza was too tough/chewy for him to eat, but he did get a few bites. I might try noodles with sauce this week, too.
And here's some pictures of his tiny, little body! I love him!!!
