Thanks, Jen! Yeah, it was pure hell there for a few weeks. Looking back, I'm not entirely sure how DH and I got through it, but we did. Especially in January/Feburary after I was back at work, but before I was diagnosed/before the meds started to kick in. I was lucky that I had very, very, very little pain. Well, after the hemmies I gave myslef pushing finally healed (and then got REALLY bad b/c of the diarrhea), that is!
I'm TOTALLY enjoying him now! He's such a doll! :)
