Sickness...

>> Sunday, January 6, 2008

This winter we have had our fair share of sickness, and I can't wait for it to be done. We started with Pink Eye, and just about everyone got their turn with it. They have a big problem with it at Xander's school, and it seemed as though we would never get rid of it. We were at it for probably a month. Well, that next month is when things really got bad. On Christmas Eve Kayden came down with the stomach flu that morning. He came down stairs complaining that his belly was hungry because he didn't eat all of his hot dog the night before, but two seconds after finishing his sentence mom's hand were cupped under his mouth and we were running to the bathroom. For the remainder of the day he sat on the couch with a bowl on his lap. Although he did liven up when we got to open presents that night. Well we made it till Thursday afternoon, and we thought the worst was over, and that just Kayden would get it, but little did I know that at 2:00 am on Friday Xander would wake up with it. He woke me out of a deep sleep and so it took me a while to figure out what was going on, and by the time I made it to him he had covered himself, his blanket, pillow, and bed. So Xander slept in bed with us, and at every movement I had the bowl ready to go! We were supposed to leave for the cabin that next morning, but we had to put that trip on hold till Saturday. We then left for the Cabin on Saturday as planned, and had a BLAST there, but when New Years Eve hit so did the Stomach Flu for Landen, and of course it has to be while people are supposed to be sleeping. Unfortunately at the cabin this time there was something wrong with the hot water heater, and so we didn't have hot water, but kudos to dad for keeping the water going on the stove so we could wash him all up. Me and Landen slept (well Landen slept) on the couch, and in the morning were ready to head home. So on the way home we tried to figure out who was next. Well we were all right on our guess, because Thursday morning Tyler started, then Chance, then me, then Deanna, and then Gene. We all started with in hours of each other. So just when we think that it can't get worse Xander starts with a fever, and so we take him to the doctor, because we thought he had chicken pox (in which he does have one on his arm). Poor little guy had strep throat, ear infection and impetigo. So now it is just a matter of time until that all goes around at least the boys, and after this I sure hope we are done!

Hey! I hope everyone is starting to feel better and that you don't all get this next round of sickness. I hate it. We have been passing stuff around our house too. I have been using directions from someone's blog and they are not easy one bit!! The link is saved on Joseph's laptop so I will get it to you when he gets home from school. Hope you have a good day....and no I don't want to trade! One in primary is bad enough. They are all growing up way too fast!
