Upon returning home Saturday afternoon from the hospital, I noticed an intense amount of pain I was experiencing in the evening in my incision area due to having an episiotemy. Once I woke up Sunday morning, I couldn't take the pain and the prescription they gave me for ibuprofen was not even helping. The pain is so great that I can't sit, I can't stand for any length of time and the only way to get comfortable is laying in bed, but it's still painful to get in and out of bed. I contacted the doctor on call and he called in some pain medication for me to take over the weekened until I can see my doctor on Monday.
I saw my doctor on Monday and after my examination, he stated that I got an infection and that's what's causing all my pain and discomfort. He gave me a prescription for antibiotics and said it could take up to a week or longer to clear up. I have been taking the antibiotics for almost a full two days now and I don't notice a difference yet. The pain and discomfort is still the same at this point.
Please pray for me for a quick recovery. I need all the prayer I can get right now because I am very frustrated with not being able to do too much and it makes me feel down right now. My two older boys want and need my attention that I can't give them and I have a brand new baby that requires all my attention. Thankfully I can have baby Jeremiah stay in bed with me most of the time so I can take care of him while trying to recover.
Thank you for keeping me in your prayers!
I Love, Love, Love Valentines Day!!!
