I am so grateful to be living in this digital age. I love having the internet as it keeps me connected to friends and family and has helped me find new friends that there is no way I would have if it weren’t for the internet.
Yesterday I became quite ill. I have mastitis, and was unsure of what to do. Of course the first thing I did is call my mom, because when you’re sick you just want Mommy to make you better. Even at 30 years old with gray hair and three kids, I want my mommy. Anyrate, after talking to her for a bit, I shuffled into the computer room and who was online, but ABQ. I had talked to Zen Mama online earlier in the day, but that was before my 101 degree fever and chills. Zen gave me some great tips on nursing and what to check for because I was in a lot of pain. Anyway, I asked ABQ’s help and opinions. I was waiting for the doctor’s office to open from lunch so I could make an appointment. With ABQ’s suggestions and Zen’s earlier suggestions, I never called the doctor’s office back. Ches was able to come home early to take care of the kids for me, so I got the rest I needed. Last night, just as suddenly as the fever came on, it broke. I still have a little pain as I nurse, but it’s mostly gone.
Thank you, my digital friends, for being there. I felt like I was going to die there for a bit (yes, I know it’s an exaggeration, but I was really sick!!), but by following what other experienced moms told me, I was able to get better quickly. I really appreciate all of your friendships… all my blogging buddies have taught me new things and encouraged me when I was down and helped me in ways you’ll never know. I’m so glad I live in this digital age!
