CT scans and pumping and dumping!

Have you ever had a CT scan? They are quite the amazing machine. It sounded like a jet engine and as I was going through it I could just imagine myself taking off! The CT scan went fairly well. It turned out to be a hematoma that they were able to fix right there in the scanning room. It was a minor surgery and I am feeling a little better...still very tender in the tummy area but feeling better than last weekend. I am on some pretty heavy antibiotics; one for a sinus infection and one for the infection in the hematoma. So glad to have that all behind me. I am praying to feel well so that I can take care of my family and move forward with my Heritage Makers business. Have you ever had to pump and dump? Because I had iodine in my system I had to pump and dump for 24 hours! So not a fun thing to do...especially for one who nurses her babies exclusively. It is a good thing that Hunter is such a good baby and took a bottle and formula so well. He didn't even skip a beat but I was hating life! Happy to be back to the regular old nursing routine. Tomorrow is a new week and I am hoping to have an amazing one. Being positive is what I need to be!! Hope you all have an amazing week.

Andrea---when is it ever going to slow down for you? If it's not one thing, it's 12 others! I am almost done with one of my books, but I need you to preview it for me. Let me know if can. Rindee

I am so glad that everything was figured out and it wasn't too major. I hope you can get back to doing the things you love.

I am so glad you are doing well.

I thought the worst part of the CT was the holding still and holding your breath. The medicine made me sick. I am glad you have such a good little baby. You never did tell me if you used Kristin for a middle name of not. I still think it is a perfect choice. Love you.

I hope the worst is behind you.
