This Is Not An Infirmary!!!

Okay, well, maybe it is. At least this week it feels like it. I have not blogged since Thursday, would you like to guess why? No, I did not take that vacation to Tuscany, Italy I've been planning for five years. I'm not browsing the marketplace buying fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes and bread. I'm not sipping wine on my veranda overlooking the countryside as the sun sets on the horizon. No, no instead I am spraying Lysol as if my life depended on it and praying that the germs bounce off me and drown in the bleach which I'm mopping my floor with.

Here's the medical update:
Em came home from school early Friday with temp.
Soph's congestion turned into infection on Sunday.
Little One's nose began to run and her ongoing battle with her ears continued.
Went to doctor on Monday...Em getting better, Soph has lots of yellow, infected stuff in back of throat and nose.
Ear Specialist in the afternoon....Little One still has fluid in both ears...put on antibiotics for 3 weeks as last ditch effort before tubes.
Monday night...Soph's temp. is hovering around 103.5

So today, Soph is still battling her fever, Em has a terrible cough and little one tries her best to act happy even though her ears are bothering her.

And lets just say that at one time I thought of being a nurse and now I realize my dream is being fufilled!!!

Now I must go Little One is crying and my time at the computer is up:)

I'm so sorry! We are just now getting over something similar. It has been 9 days!

Wow! Is it true that "when it rains, it pours?" I think I realized that when the boys were little and spreading germs faster than I could blink! Good luck in getting them all well AT ONCE! See you later this month. Meanwhile, I am off to play nurse for Jacki since her nurse is out of pocket for a while! Just think about Joe and your situation might not seem quite as bad--well, maybe!

Oh dear, I hope they are all on the mend and that Little One's antibiotics do the trick. Thinking of you all with "get well" thoughts!

Oh dear...the poor things and poor mom. It is never fun when the kids are sick, especially when you have more than one sick. I wish you all a speedy recovery and that the antibiotics work for little one!
