Had to stop breast feeding:(

So I posted last week about breast feeding while having the flu. I did continue to BF but Saturday I was admitted to the hospital and found out my cancer is back. So unfortunately I had to stop BF. Baby girl is taking to the bottles pretty well until she comes to see me then she wants me. But on sunday they had to put me on antibiotics that are not okay for BF. And I start chemo tomorrow. I am so happy I was able to feed her for 7mo. She was pumped and fed breast milk the first 6 wks, then I was able to get her to latch. But at this point it is much better for both of us for me to get better. :) prayers/good thoughts are much appreciated for both of us.

Update-
So I had day 11 of chemo today which is my last day of round 1. Round 2 starts on the 17th of this month. Baby girl is starting to have some belly issues. But that may be because she is teething and her poor gums are swollen :( if it continues I may have to switch her to gentle formula, which is what our oldest had to be on as well. But she's also stressed. I mean she went from having me every second of every day to being at sitters, not having me but a few hours a day. I'm going to be in the hospital for a long while, they're talking late September early October. I may get out for a few days between treatment but that's undetermined right now and I will definitely be here for another 2wks. Thank you all for the support and well wishes.

Oh hun, I'm so sorry. I think she will forgive you for living instead of breastfeeding :) I'm glad you were at least able to keep those special moments for 7 months! My prayers are with you!
