• "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" --Mary Oliver

  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Wow - you must feel crappy - you posted that thing twice!! Hope your life takes a turn for the better - sounds like it's all piling up...

And neither of mine were breastfed for long (Emily 6 weeks, Collin 3 days) and neither has ever been on an antibiotic or had an ear infection! ;-)

Oh, man... you've just had a heck of a time lately. Hope things start looking up and that everyone starts recovering.

Well, not to discredit the idea that non-breastfed babies can't be as perfectly healthy as their breastfed counterparts, but in my family it has certainly been the case. I had horrible asthma, allergies, chronic sinus, ear and lung infections. My sisters had NOTHING of the kind and they were both breastfed while I was not. I am a little superstitious too since Viola had never had anything more than a cold until I weaned her at 2+. By winter that year she had bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, eczema, etc.. Could be a total coincidence, but hey, I live for anecdotes. Again, not at all scientific or statistically significant, but what if in our family there is some link?

Yeah, I know, I sound like a freak.

Nancy and Jodi, thanks for the kind comments... you have no idea what a lift it gives me to come here and read your blogs and your comments and know that I'm not alone in the world... :)

I really enjoy reading your blog, too. I agree, it helps to have friends out in cyberspace. :-)
