In keeping with the theme of being flexible and adapting to change- our first planned date night didn't turn out as we had planned. Our plan was to get out to a restaurant for a quiet dinner, just the 3 of us. Well, after cleaning the house, bathing Caiden and getting him all ready we all 3 ended up asleep on the couch...
Jenn woke up with a headache, and a fever. Her breasts have gotten extremely sore and breastfeeding has become rough. She equates it to nearly as much pain as birth was. She's got an infection and we'll have to go to the doctor tomorrow to get it taken care of. Probably anti-biotics for Jenn, then some pro-bitotics for Caiden, so he doesn't get a mouth yeast infection.
I'm so proud of Jenn and the amazing mother she's become. Even through these troubles she hasn't lost her commitment to Caiden and to breastfeeding. I can see how hard it is, and hold her hand, but really that's all it is, holding her hand.
We've had great support from family & friends. Staci's been an invaluable resource who's really lived up to her 'call me anytime you need me' request. She's there for us whenever we need her. Tina's been great for Jenn to talk to. The people that have brought us dinners have made life so much easier. And finally, Jan & Keven (papa & nana) have gone well beyond the call of normal grandparenting. Supporting and helping us whenever we need it, even when we think we don't, they show up and make a difference. Like tonight Jan went to Sisely and picked us up dinner, so we could have that date night.
So date night ended up with the good food, good company, but just at home watching the Red Sox game. Still a good night, especially with the win. Great date night with my love.
Then what a call for LSU! :16 seconds left, they go for it, when they could have tried a field goal!
Geaux Tigers! Now they should be #3, they deserve to be higher, they're just that good and can easily handle anyone when they're on their game.
Weather Update: Took Dillon out for a walk. With 35 mph winds and 60 mph gusts I think it's good we stayed home.
