We've got the bug...

I could almost say that we made it all winter without any sickness in the house. But...we didn't quite make it. That being said...it's been a horrible week! Claire was the first to get sick, and i'll spare you the details, but she had a pretty high fever and everything that goes along with that. This started Tuesday night, but Friday she seemed to be getting better. Crawling around and happy. Malia threw up Thursday night and stayed home from school Friday. she is better now. Brent came home from work Friday night with the chills and seems to be feeling better tonight. Claire's fever has come back and i'm starting to worry a bit. She is drinking bottles, but hasn't eaten anything all day...or for the past few days. Her fever is 101. I'm one of those parents who is reluctant to bring their kids into the dr. because it seems like every time I do i'm told to "keep and eye on it and come back if it gets worse." So I don't know at what point I should bring her in? Just keep her in your prayers because she is not doing well! We need our happy little girl back. Luckily i've avoided everything so far...after a week of nasty diapers and loads of nasty laundry it's pretty amazing. I feel like a housebound housewife...going a little stir crazy. So, sorry nothing fun to report. Claire's first birthday/Easter is next Sunday so hopefully we'll all be healthy for that fun day!

I feel for you! Koben and Chloe had that bug a couple weeks ago. Saturday morning Chloe woke with a fever, again, and here I thought I was done! Last night Koben thought our log canopy bed would make a fabulous jungle gym and took a swinging leap off of it. So he and Craig had to take a trip to the emergency room (Kobens first) because we were watching my sister-in-laws kids this weekend. So my little bubby has a hairline fracture in his elbow and is wearing a sling. Jeesh. 30 years old and no broken bones, but my three year old does! So I FULLY sympathize with you, and I hope everyone in your house gets healthy quick, and I hope you don't get it too after all you've had to do for everyone else!

I feel your pain. Jane is on the same roller coaster as Claire. I'm sure she'll get better soon!

Um...so I am guessing we don't have any friends left. Sorry, I know that it doesn't make it any better to say that I know what you are going through. At least we both got all the kids sheets washed this week : )
