She continues to breastfeed well. I'm so glad I took a class on that as it has made our learning process so much easier. I've not had any issues other than a little tenderness.
I'm recovering slowly but surely. Right now, most of my pain is around the incision part and still soreness when getting up and down. I'm still taking pain medicine and an anti-inflammatory. I tried to get off the narcotics yesterday but it was clearly too early. I'm also having trouble breathing here and there. Taking nice deep breaths can be difficult. I try to cough as I was instructed to get the fluid out of my lungs, but it's painful to cough. I need a good deep productive cough and I can't seem to get one. Mom and Stephen remark that I'm sometimes very pale and I'm wondering if it has to do with my breathing. If I'm not any better by my follow up with Dr. Anderson on Tuesday I will address it with him.
In the meantime, our days have been filled with spoiling that sweet little girl. The first picture is the one of the first time she opened her eyes for any good period of time, but we got some good pictures today.
We stayed home from church this morning because the doctors really don't want her in large crowds for two months (or passed around much for the first two weeks - when she will get her first round of vaccines.) When we were told that - I asked the nurse if she wanted to tell the church that...I'm guessing though as she gets older, her pediatrician will be able to direct us better as to when we can get out.
She was however wide-eyed this morning, so Mimi and I put her in a cute outfit and took pictures.
Here are a few of our favorites...
After this, she fed, we changed her diaper and she fell dead asleep.
Thanks for all your congratulations and well wishes! We're still on cloud 9!
