I so appreciate all the get-wells from you guys. I wish the healing thoughts had worked….alas, my cold has gotten much more severe and I’m wishing my baby boy days more in the womb. As of today, I started getting pain around my eyes. I’m now having gobs of thick yellow discharge coming out of them every 5 minutes or so. I clean out my eyes, and then minutes later Karli says it’s there again. If I don’t clean them out, my vision becomes cloudy and I literally “cry” yellow pus. There is pressure around my eyes from all the stuff behind there….it feels like someone punched me a little above my cheeks….not fun. My throat is raw from the drainage….I’m not sleeping at night either. I feel worse than I have in a really long time and I’m now in full-blown self-pity mode. I just want to cry….and can’t even think about the baby right now. How awful is that?? After 3 and a half days of this, I don’t know how much more I can take.
Update: K just called our midwife and she said I have a severe bacterial infection, and that I have to go on antibiotics. She is writing a prescription right now and we’re swinging by this evening to pick it up and get it filled. Hallelujah.
