The not-so-fun part of today – PKU testing
But there’s nothing mommy and lamby can’t make better. :)
At his one week check-up, Alex weighed in just a few ounces less than his birth weight, so we’re good there. He also passed his hearing test. The PKU wasn’t really too traumatic. I nursed him through it.
So why am I not nursing in that photo up there? Well… *sigh* I’m a bit nursed out. We are unfortunately dealing with thrush (candida/yeast infection) in my breasts and it’s very painful. We’re treating it, but it’s kind of all consuming.
Because of this, I definitely haven’t written out my birth story yet. Promise it will happen soon! In the meantime, please pray that we’ll be able to get the thrush under control. It hasn’t been a very fun few days. :(
