Was told that I only needed to dump the milk right after the surgery and can save all the rest of my milk. So... on to starting to beef up my freezer supply again. I've got a good chance of staying off formula I think. That's good news. Formula costs 3 arms and leg.
The scabs I've read so much about are completely different from what I thought they'd be. It actually just feels like a piece of grainy gum is spread out in the back of my throat. I feel it but its not... scabby. Yet? We'll see. The sore throat to be honest (while on Hydrocodone) isn't any worse than the sore throat I've had for
I miss my kids and this is only the second night apart from them. Apparently Ace had a hard time last night. Aayla is spending the night at Mema's house and getting brought back to Bree's on Mom's way to work. That will give Bree a better shot at getting some sleep at night. Also... Ameira is trying to drop a night feeding as of three nights ago. Too bad she interprets anything after 5pm as night. She is trying to eat her last meal around 3 or 4 pm and then eat again around 2 or 3 am. If you attempt to feed her she just sobs/screams inconsolably because she wants to be asleep. Hopefully Bree can nip that in the bud and get some sleep for herself. If I feel better early next week I'm thinking about taking her back. An infant is so much easier to keep up with than a 2-year-old. My theory is if instead of feeding her 6 oz or whatever at 3am, "we" feed her 2 oz and then rock her back down, she will start to shift her hunger toward evening instead of early, early morning. Fingers crossed, Hands folded.
