Comments for Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back
Feeling well rested yesterday I volunteered to make dinner for the family. It took me about an hour and a half to make home made sauce, boil up some noodles and banana bread. During dinner I regretted all that effort, suddenly coming down with a stomach ache (from over doing).
It took until about one in the morning to feel well enough to go to bed without throwing up. Ian and Harriet stayed upstairs and Ian took care of her middle of the night feedings with a couple of bottles so I could get some uninterrupted sleep. At five in the morning we switched off. Harriet having missed real milk, nursed for three hours, finally stopping around eight in the morning.
Unfortunately I couldn't go back to sleep because Sean was now up for the day and Ian really needed some good sleep too. So the three of us got up and let Ian sleep. He got up around 9:30 and I went back to bed until eleven.
For the rest of today I've been physical sore and exhausted. I haven't had the energy to read at my usual pace or even to do my usual morning blog update (it's now five in the afternoon). I'm tired of this "recovery process."
