Hey there, friends! Thank you so much to all of you who tweeted, and left sweet comments on Instagram and Facebook yesterday. Maile is fine. I'm fine. I'm not sure why it took me so long, but I finally figured out that she was having a horrible reaction to the antibiotic I started Monday night, for a sinus infection. Although Keflex has a low classification for affecting breastfed little ones, Maile is apparently very sensitive to it ... and it messed me up pretty good, too. Because Maile is still nursing, I try my best not to take medication, but untreated sinus infections can land me in the hospital, so I took a chance.
Today I'm planning on picking up a Neti pot, and some ear oil, to see if I can kick this crud naturally! (I've read extensively on Neti pots, and I figure, at worst, it just won't work.) I don't really want to take another antibiotic right now, however mild, and risk messing up Maile's little system again; she's just too little.
So, that's the yuck that's happening around here. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming soon, but while Maile and I rest up, here are some links to get you through Hump Day!
