Sorry about the pause in posting, I'm back at work.
I cried for the first couple of blocks during my commute, but I felt very comforted knowing that my family members have stepped in to help watch my boy. When I arrived at work I was humbled by my new surroundings. I'm starting with a pediatric rehabilitation rotation and it broke my heart to see so many children with injuries, making me appreciative to have my healthy baby even if I don't get to see him as much as I'd like.
Pumping is going to be a challenge. My setup isn't bad, but with my doctor responsibilities crashing on me like waves I'm having a hard time getting into the 'mood' of producing an adequate supply. Thanks goodness for the Medela Microwave bags for sterilizing my pumping parts, it saves me a bit of time.
Here we go. . .
