Yeah, Dad looks kinda drugged but he's not...and look at the good smile from Elijah! He sure loves his Dad!!!!

So here's the scoop on me...my OB isn't real happy with my blood pressure. He thinks it was still too high yesterday (Wednesday) when it was about 140 over 90. He said I needed to see my regular family doc because by now, if it were pregnancy or post-pregnancy related, it would be done. So I saw my GP today...well, he's not the GP I chose but he's the one I'm stuck with. My GP left to move to Illinois or something like that. So Dr. Mathew is the new dude, and he isn't concerned, even tho today I was like 125 over 90. I told him this is WAY high for me but whatever...I'm just that patient, right? So we talked about stuff, like the headaches I have and so forth. So this is the dork's diagnosis...I have a sinus infection and that explains the headache. My BP is high cuz of the pain from the sinus infection. So he sends me on my way with 3 prescriptions...one for a sinus med (decongestant, etc), one for an anti-inflammitory, and one for a pain med. Sure guy...whatever! I got home from the pharmacy and was talking to Adam about all this, and noticed that on the sinus med, it said it bold print, all capital letters; "THIS MEDICINE IS EXCRETED IN BREAST MILK! DO NOT BREAST FEED WHILE ON THIS MEDICATION!" Dummy...I should have told him that my baby isn't a Racine ghetto formula fed thug child! Sorry...this whole city is just making me mad right now. So after calling the pharmacist, my doctor, my OB and the pediatrician, it was decided the med was safe...if I were taking it more than twice a day, they might be more concerned. I'm still a little concerned. But Elijah seemed to do OK today, and he's sleeping now (it's 2am!) so I guess he's OK. But I still think my GP is a crazy, drug pushing moron but whatever. He gave me an extra week off from work...and since I hate my job SO much and am trying so hard to find a new one, that's OK. Maybe my BP is high because I've been realizing I have to go back to my crappy job and my company is going to try to take advantage of me again. Or maybe I'm just nuts....

I don't know...I do know I should go to bed now. Adam has already gone to bed for the night. But I want him to sleep well since he has to work 7am to 6pm tomorrow. So I'm gonna kill some more time until he's totally asleep and then I'll go to bed.

Elijah has his 2 month appointment on Wednesday the 17th. I'm anxious to go because I think he's grown a lot, and I have a few questions regarding our whole breastfeeding situation...but I'm apprehensive because he's getting his first round of shots. Poor baby! He's so overly dramatic about everything else that I'm sure this whole shot thing is going to be the end of his little world . Well, at least I don't have to go back to work until the 22nd so I'll have a week with him to reassure him that it's not quite the end of the world...

So thus ends my update for now...hope you enjoy the post!
