What a day! I woke up with the headache from hell. Nothing has helped it all day. I think kids know when you don’t feel good and automatically raise their volume. *sigh*
Then at about 9:00 I finally sucked it up and called my OB’s office because I was concerned about my bleeding and episiotomy incision. This time the incision didn’t bother me as much as it did when I had NHL, but the bleeding has gone on longer than before. I talked with a nurse who told me to come in and have it looked at. She said it should be healed up by now (almost 4 weeks), but if something is wrong it’s best to catch it now and not be stuck with it for 30+ years.
So I got JSL ready and we went in. I had to wait about 45 minutes to get in since one of the doctors had to leave to deliver a baby. So I saw the doctor that delivered NHL. He asked me who did the delivery. Then he told me that the bleeding is not my incision, it’s still my cervix and is fine. He then noted that the incision was not stitched up quite even. WTH? He was very calming and told me that it’s nothing to freak out about. He doesn’t know why, but the body will self correct this. He told me that may be why it’s suddenly bothering me. So this is definitely something I will ask the other OB about when I go back in 2 weeks for my 6 week check. So we shall see how things go, but I am anticipating a lot of pain in my future :(
Onto better things. JSL took a nice nap in his Pack N’ Play today. . . very nice for mommy not to have to hold him and nice for the headache. It gave me time to work on 22 thank you notes (note I already sent out over 25 before just to my students and co-workers). Here is a picture of him sleeping:
To prove that the little guy does open his eyes. . . here are two other photos.
Now I just need to get more photos of NHL and JSL together.
I am off to help get NHL out of the tub and into bed (quiet would be nice instead of an almost 4 year old being so LOUD). He’s quite cranky tonight and could use some extra sleep.
