Rough Day

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
Proverbs 3:5-8

This has been one.rough.day for Mommy and me. Here, in a nutshell, is why:

1. Mommy's (new) Ob/Gyn found a lump in her right breast. Given Mommy's age, Dr. Watson is fairly confident that it isn't anything serious...most likely related to lactating. Mommy is waiting on a phone call from the radiologist to schedule a sonogram for a closer look.

2. My body is not liking the MMR vaccine I was given last week. Dr. Hull warned Mommy and Daddy that kiddos often respond to the MMR with a high temp 7-10 days after the vaccine is administered. My temp was nearly 103 tonight. Motrin has been my good friend.

3. Apparently, I am allergic to Boudreaux's Butt Paste. We ran out of Desitin a few days ago, so Mommy decided to use up some BBP she was given during her pregnancy. The result? A bright red, splotchy, bumpy circle right on my bumbie. Of course, when Mommy noticed it yesterday she thought it was just a diaper rash. So she slathered more BBP on it. Thank goodness Mimi and Auntie were able to shed some light on this situation before it got any worse!

Lest I leave you with too bleak a picture of our day, though, I must tell you that there was one bright spot. Mommy, Auntie, and I met up with Cooper and Kelly at Abby's Playtown! This was the first time for Cooper and Auntie to meet each other, but they hit it off right away.

Cooper and I enjoyed playing in the bitty baby area, watching big kids fly down the Step 2 roller coaster, and taking our own turn at the wheel.

I wasn't much of a (play)date, however. I think my fever was starting to rise about 20 minutes after we arrived at Playtown, because I entered one of those dreaded "everything I do and see makes me cry" zones. That's when Mommy decided it was time to go home.

The rest of the day was pretty much spent like this.

Snuggle time + singing hyms = instant comfort

Oh Rachel! Praying your lump is benign. What a scary thing to have to go through. Please keep us updated!! ((HUGS))

As for the fever with MMR, Austin reacted the same way. Hope her fever dies down soon.
