I'm happy to report that the girls have been healing up nicely over the last week. (Knock on wood) The two antibiotics I'm on prevent me from using my breastmilk but have been working which is all I really care about at this point! Baby E has been solely on formula for the last week or so and doesn't seem any worse for the wear.
As for weaning, I'm pumping two and sometimes three times a day with a yield of about six ounces. This is a huge drawdown from the 35-40 ounces I was pumping out earlier. The plan is to completely empty the girls each time while spreading the pumping times out. However as per my doc's orders, I'm going as slooooooow as I need to.
Today is the first day that I'm feeling a lot better as I finally have a little energy. I've been allowing myself to just fulfill the basics of life--taking care of E, cooking dinner, working the classes I teach, and doing the bare minimum in the classes I'm taking. Cleaning be damned.
Thanks for all of your well wishes!
