Frustrated...

I'm soo tired right now!! Frustrated too...
Chris and Samantha, AWESOME friends from MI, came to visit us this week-end, we had a BLAST and lack of sleep! But sooooo worth it! We went to DC one day, then showed them the Potomac River, then some of John Wilkes Boothe trail. They left Tuesday late afternoon! :o( I hate saying good-bye, can't wait to see them again! Hard because we really haven't made any friends out here, so when some one comes to visit, (including family, (GEORGE :OP)) its hard to say good-bye...
So Friday afternoon my chin was itchy on my right side of my face. Didn't think too much about it. Then when I woke up Sat, my whole right side was itchy. My eye was a tad swollen too, then Sunday, even worse. So I went got some cream to help with the itch and hoping it would clear it up. It was also starting to spread to my left arm and had some spots on both of my legs. Googled anything I could think of that it could be and came up with nothin'! So Wed I decided to go get it checked out. Since we don't have a family doc out here (We would if all Family doc's would see babies, but no, they don't out here! You HAVE to take any and all babies to a Ped! Grr...) I went to Patient First, it's like a Doctors Now or Redimed. Seemed like a nice/clean place, wrote my name on the paper and waited to have it called. I got there at 11:10 am, and didn't leave until 1:15! It took FOREVER for them to call my name and get all my info, then waited forever for the doc! So when she came in she looked at my spots and was like, I really don't know what it is. There are 2 different kinds on you. I am like great. So she prescribed some drugs for me, she called what I have dermatitis, not contagious. Not sure how I got it though. You usually get it by, a food allergy, poison ivy, change of laundry soap, etc, etc... I haven't done any of those things! Oh, stress is anything one, but if I would've gotten it, I figured I would've gotten it due to stress a LOOOOONG time ago!!! :o) So I am sitting there and she's listing off 2 meds to take for 5 days and then one I took that day, then she says none of these are safe to be nursing and take at the same time. So she said to pump n dump for 5 days. She said has he (I took Thad so Curt wouldn't have to worry about him, just the other 3!!!) ever had a bottle, I said once. She said ok, so you know how to give him a bottle. I was like yeah, I have 3 others. She just stared at me. (how rude! LOL) So I got the meds from that place and then I had to go to some other places, but I had to go home and give Thaddeus a bottle. She said she didn't like the looks of my rash, and it could possibly be in my blood stream, so she didn't want me nursing. Fine, I understand... Got home and tried for an hour to get him to take it, nothin'! Then I was laying on the floor feeling all funky due to the meds, then I tried to get him to eat. This is at 4:00, he hadn't eaten since 10 am!!! Still nothin'! I felt sooooo bad, I'm crying, he's screaming! I felt like it was my fault, I got the stupid rash and still have no idea why or how? So because of that I couldn't nurse and to top it off, it was Curt and I's 9th Anniversary! Some anniversary, I'm all doped up, have a fussy kid and then off to our first small group, 'cept it wasn't so small! But it was good. Going to a Romans one. Last nite they did hamburgers and hot dogs to kick it off. I couldn't even eat! I hadn't really eaten anything all day, but my tummy was not feeling so good. At the end of the lesson, the pastor was praying and he paused and I about feel asleep! Opps... :o\ Let me explain, it's the meds the doc has me on! I was looking online and it said it could take 2 to 4 weeks to clear up! Yippy Skippy!!!
So went to Target this morning and got more formula and new bottles. I went through 3 different formula and 2 different kinds of bottles with him and finally got it, but man... This afternoon he didn't want it, so now I feel bad again! :O( He did really good last nite and early this morning... He's been really sleepy too... Not sure why? I tried to fed him at 1 and he didn't want it, so he went to sleep... Hopefully he will eat again and soon!
Saturday is Skylar's 3rd birthday! Wow, where did the time go? I am going to start making her cake today, atleast cooking the cake! Gonna go big!!! ;o) Gonna be AWESOME too!!! Wanna know what kind I am making for her? Well, you'll just have to wait for the pics come Sat nite or Sunday!!! :O)
