Day Five. This is it…and I’m exhausted.

What a day. I awoke early and took a shower. Then I nursed my son and promptly went back to sleep once I passed him off to my mom. I slept till 12:30 in the afternoon. And I have felt like going back to bed all day.

Just. So. Tired.

If it weren’t for the fact that today is day five and I had to take my last 500 mg of steroids, I don’t think I would have gotten out of bed. That may be exactly what I do tomorrow. That’s my plan anyway. We’ll see how it goes.

Yesterday was spent cleaning bathrooms and mopping and laundry and cooking a yummy dinner. I was a busy bee. Well, mom helped. She vacuumed. And helped tremendously with Eli. Today was the exact polar opposite. Maybe I overdid it yesterday. Or maybe it’s just all finally catching up with me.

Today I was jittery, unfocused, tired, and weak. My face looks horrible and puffy. And I feel completely useless. Hopefully I will regain some strength in a couple of days and be back to normal soon.

I hope. I’m ready to be me again.

Eli has done really well. The steroids haven’t effected him one bit. Not a bit! That makes me very happy and I’m so glad I kept right on nursing him through it all. Even if I am tired.

I may just go to bed early tonight. My pillow sounds really comfy right now and is calling to me. Beckoning.

Good night y’all.
