I'm much better, but the mastitis is lingering stubbornly. I still have a red line on my breast and I feel a bit hot and flushed. My Ob/Gyn is threatening me with a forced end to breast feeding if the infection isn't completely gone in the next couple of days. I really hope it doesn't come to that – it would be such a traumatic process for both Petra and me. Petra loves to breast feed and I love feeding her. It's a wonderfully intimate loving thing to do and I want to keep doing it for as long as I can.
I'm drinking gallons of water and pumping until my wrist hurts. Cross fingers that today's injection will be the one to finish off the infection.
