No Wonder I Was So Cranky Yesterday...

I was coming down with mastitis :-(

I'd been feeling a bit dizzy and weak yesterday afternoon before I went to the park, but had thought it was because I had had a light lunch. So I ate a piece of fruit to get my blood sugar up and didn't think too much of it. But by the evening, I had a low grade fever and two hard red spots on my breast. I drank a whole bunch of water and went to bed early but I'm still feeling lousy this morning. So now I'm off to the urgent care center for some antibiotics before it gets any worse.

With my oldest, I got a really bad case of mastitis and wound up in the ER with a 104 degree temp, ugh!

I had that with my two oldest. Ugh! I hope the antibiotics help very quickly.

Arent you so lucky you have health insurance!

If I did not have insurance, it would've cost me $59 for the urgent care visit (according to their website) plus $10.37 for the antibiotics. That's less than most of the 84% of the US population who subscribe to cable/satellite TV pay each month for that service.
