Many of you know that I have achy joints. I have decided that it is finally time to try and feel better, so have gone to the doctor. The result is that the doctor prescribed me an anti-inflammatory to calm things down a bit. Anyway, that was last week.
Yesterday, I realized that the doctor probably didn't know that I was still nursing when she prescribed the medication, so I called to find out whether I should nurse while taking it, etc. When they called me back today to let me know that I shouldn't take it while nursing, I knew I had a decision to make.
I decided that now is the time I need to take care of me. I have been putting it off for a long time, but I think if I feel better I'll be a better/happier/more patient mom. I am just bummed that my hand was forced. I would have liked to nurse Big for just a while longer (not until he's 7 or anything!) since we were still having a grand time, and he is my last.
Looks like we'll have to fill the void with more baseball playing (Big got a hold of a big slotted spoon today and muttered, "Now I need a ball". Anything remotely bat-like becomes a "bap" in his eyes. The other night at my brother's house it was a straw that he found in their toy box). Crazy kid!
