Feeling like shit

Saturday I couldn't sleep because I was shivering uncontrollably. Seriously people my feet were shaking, and I'm pretty sure even my toes were. My lips were white, my finger nails where white and I looked like hell. I tried taking a scalding bath and it felt like ice water. I got out of the bath, Rob graciously cranked the heater to 73 (anything over 60 is to hot for him) got me a second blanket and I went to bed with slippers, flannel pants, 2 shirts and two blankets. I shivered until 1am. Shivering so bad I kept Rob awake with my movement. It occured to me that I might be dehydrated as Codi had been nursing every 3 minutes and I had drank a total of about 1 glass of water that day since it took me over 4 hours to drink my two cups of coffee and then I had a bit of juice with lunch. I had Rob bring me a Gatoraid, a Capri Sun roaring waters and a bottle of water. I drank it all and the chills slowly went away. However when I would get up to change Codi I would swerve the whole way to his room as I was dizzy and not quite seeing straight. I awoke with a temp of 100.8 (which is high for me I barely ever go to 98) and progressed to 101 quite quickly and fluctuated between 101 and 102 for the rest of the day. This morning I woke up and my left boob feels like it is sort of on fire. I'm now thinking either mastitis or an infection from my c- section. Although the fire in my boob is leading me to believe it is coming from there. Needless to say, I didn't blog much this weekend. I didn't make it to the store, so I have no milk, no dinner and am on my last pack of wipes. Which means I need to get my ass to the store before I call my doctor because I JUST KNOW they will make me come in. Sigh.

:( I've never had it, but that so does sound like mastitis.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

You know I live like 1 minute away, you can call me if you ever need anything...even if you just need someone to go to the store and buy milk. I have no life so it's not like you're interupting anything!

I hope you're feeling better soon Shannon. I had completely forgotten how hard it is to have a newborn and to be sick.
