McKenna pics

So McKenna's first weekend was filled with many many tears and they didn't come from McKenna. She is every bit of perfect and has been so sweet and peaceful. (so far!)
I, on the other hand had everything but a peaceful weekend.
 So...turns out I am severely allergic to the glue that is used to put on the incision after you have a c-section. We came home Wednesday afternoon and by Thursday evening the rash began. I won't go into much detail but lets just say it looks like one of those pictures you see in a medical school book that is so gross you turn the page quickly. It is bad. Real bad.
We talked to the on-call nurse serval times this weekend and made a trip to the ER.  Nobody could really put their finger on what was causing it and the rash was not responding to any of the medicines I was given. I began to panic. It wasn't until today that I finally had some relief and peace about the whole thing. After visiting two different doctors this morning it was determined that I am having a reaction to the glue and have developed a very bad case of contact dermatitis. I am now on two different meds and have high hopes that I will soon begin to see and feel improvement. Man, what a weekend!
On a happier note, Brittany took some super cute pic of McKenna today.

Brittany and I tried to get a picture of her holding her head up in her hands. Maybe next time:)

I'm sure this is only the first of many more photo shoots to come. It was so fun! It ended with Brittany's white blanket in the wash. We might have left McKenna's diaper off a little too long:) Lesson learned.

Oh no! I hope you get some relief very soon! That sounds absolutely terrible, especially when you are trying to enjoy your time with your sweet new baby!

On the other hand, the pictures of McKenna are beautiful!
