My trip to Urgent Care on vacation was followed by a middle of the night ER visit and another Urgent Care visit a few days later. Capping it off was a 16 hour trip home (we decided to do it in one day) and another doctor visit which resulted in ENT draining an abscess near my tonsils. I may be on the mend thanks to super strong antibiotics and the occasional narcotic but decided to escape the house and flew with Josie to Ohio. My excuse was for her to meet the extended family but since most are on vacation together this week elsewhere, the real reason is to have my parents-in-law watch Josie while I rest. And so far so good - she was a gem on the plan (man, it is EASY to travel with one almost 9 week-old) and I went straight back to bed this morning after I fed her while Bill and Debi took her on a walk.
Vacation photos to come once I'm back home (flight back early Saturday) and hopefully I'll be recovered enough to resume "normal" activities. But I've promised myself no more crazy busy plans while on maternity leave. I'm going to rest, see if I can get a breastfed baby on a schedule (yeah, right but advice welcome) and only focus on the most pressing matters. Let's see if I can keep to that promise.
