/ The RE's Muse: Good Friday and good riddance

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Good Friday and good riddance

Sweet bliss...tonight will mark the final dose of J's 10-day course of Augmentin. And hopefully, it will also mark the end of the horrific diarrhea and diaper rash that is accompanying this antibiotic run. Ah, but at least the vomiting ended Tuesday night--after 3 days of upchucking good times (including a particularly enjoyable inaugural episode during lunch at the Ch&&secake Factory last weekend).

The girl, despite her weeping chafed red bum, is v close to walking unaided. There's an awful lot of standing up unassisted for several seconds at a time in these parts, not to mention all of the walk-behind fun she's having with her rolling push-walker.

Last year, when I was far along in the throes of pregnancy, we attended a friend's party and another couple in attendance were in the backyard, the father holding his year-old daughter's hands while helping her toddle around the yard as she learned to walk. It was so beautiful to see that it brought tears to my eyes...I couldn't wait to see A doing that same thing with our girl one day. And it looks like soon we will have that precious moment in time. I hope I can get a picture when it happens, and if not, the picture in my mind will last forever, as so many of them do. Images burned into memory of days I never dreamed I'd have.

Are you using yeast cream for the diaper rash? Might be yeast after the antibiotic.

I've been reading your blog for quite some time now but am not sure if I've ever commented yet...I've just got to say "Wow!" Those last 2 sentences are amazing! It really sums up the way I feel about every minute with my baby. May I use that quote on my blog with credit given?

My name is Cindy Floyd and i would like to show you my personal experience with Augmentin.

I suffered from Pseudofolliculitis behind my head for years and by chance I got Augmentin from Libya without any prescription. In Europe all the doctors that I consulted could not find solution for this problem so one day I just worked into a pharmacy in Libya and showed it to the Doctor in charge of the pharmacy who adviced me to take Augmentin. I was a bit hesitant but before my returning date (after 5 days) I noticed that all the bumps are drying. and now I'm very proud of my head.

Side Effects :
None.....Miracle drug…

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Cindy Floyd
