Dear Adam,


I just wanted to write you a little note, thanking you so much for being such a good man to me...especially the last couple days. When I woke up at 3 am Thursday morning, feeling nauseous and swearing my right ta-ta was going to explode, I tried everything to relieve the pain and sooth my fever/chills....nursing Ava, taking a warm shower and then a bath, pumping, and just trying to get back to sleep. I didn't mean to, but I woke you at about 5:30am from my shivering and crying (I was so out of it). After I told you what I was feeling, you looked it up on WebMD and figured out I had mastitis. :( I wanted so badly to just get back to sleep, but you insisted you'd text our family doctor (who happens to be a good friend) and I'm so grateful you did!  He came right over to make sure I didn't have an abscess, and confirmed it was definitley mastitis.  He gave me shot in my tush, and those beautiful drugs worked so fast! My pain and nausea went away and I was able to get some much needed sleep. But before going back to dreamland, I needed to pump (doctor's orders) and you stayed up and watched SNL clips online with me...laughing with you made me hate that painful pumping a little less. Then we both got some glorious sleep. After Brooks woke up, you took him with you to pick up the prescribed antibiotics and you've made sure I take it and the other pain relievers at the right times. You also made sure I got lots of sleep while you played with the littles. You even got Ava to drink 1 ounce of milk I had pumped from a bottle! You're such a good Dad and I know the kids loved it, but I'm sure it wasn't quite the day off you expected this week. Thank you for taking care of me. I feel so much better today...still sore and tired, but no crazy nausea.  I love you.

Yours always,
Haley

PS - Thank you for picking up some soup on your way home from work for this feverish, achey body of mine...oh and donuts and milk. :) You're the best.

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well! Way to go Adam though for staying up with your wife and making sure she was all better.

Little notes, gifts, and moments like this are when you know you've really made it big I think. :)
