16 days

Typing one handed, so it'll probably be short. Trying to remeber how to do things one-handed again :)

We're adjusting slowly. I've taken all the advice about taking things slowly & I think it is making a difference. I feel better physically. Mentally is still a challenge at times, but I think it's just normal "baby blues" kind of stuff. I'm trying to at least get some rest time in each day if not a real nap. I am so thankful for having had my mom here for 2 weeks and now Dave home for 2 weeks. We've had a couple of people bring food by which has been really great, too, along with some others who have told us they'd like to.

Dillon is doing pretty well overall. She's been mostly happy with some really not-fun moments for the first week and a half, then she developed a horrendous cold making those not- fun moments into fully awful moments. Yesterday was day 5 of the cold and she seems to have turned the corner so to speak and was feeling a little better. Now it's just praying that Corryn doesn't catch it. Given the number of times Dillon coughed directly on her, I'll be truly surprised if she doesn't. She's pretty enthralled with Corryn and just wants to be touching her.

We're going to the pediatrician's this morning since we're pretty sure that Corryn has thrush. Given the horrible, horrible yeast problem Dillon & I battled for the first 3 1/2 months of her life, I'm feeling worried about this. Probably inordinately so, given my lack of sleep and general mental state right now, but I'm not taking any chances. I also see the midwife for a 2 week visit today & am planning on touching base with the Lactation Consultant as well. I just can't have a repeat of my yeast experince with Dillon.

We have 2 1/2 hours until the pedi appt. I better start getting ready now or else we'll never make it in time!

Hope the sickness passes soon! And the yeast too. That is no fun. :(

How are you on the food front? I have been meaning to ask you about that.
