The Plague November 12, 13, 14 and 18th

I am including a variety of pictures from our last round of sickness that swept our house and then went on to the Stutzman's house. Peyton and I were the only ones spared the wrath of strep throat. I am not one to jump into the doctor's office easily, so, sadly, I waited a wee bit too long and the kids got pretty sick. Micah is not a very good sleeper, he sleeps very little, but he actually got to a point when he would ask me for a sleeping pill (Benedryl), Micah got several good nights sleep in a row, hallelujah!

Ben always sleeps pretty well.





My poor sickies, Jake was still fine at this point.


These next pics were taken at urgent care, Jake had a staff infection in his thumb that had to be lanced and drained. He freaked out so much that he threw up 3 imes in the room and he had to have his throat swabbed, not easy.


This is him after he puked, I didn;t take a pic of that, I thought I'd spare you.



Ben had diarrhea in his pants, I just threw away his undies and let him go without.

On the bright side, Micah got a lot of reading done while we had to wait and wait and wait. He is a much more quiet sick, don't worry, he makes up for it when he's well.

Poor babies and poor Mom !! The hardest thing I ever endured was my baby hurting and not being able to make it go away. I am glad it has passed and if you ever need help I am around the corner too !!

Oh Kelly! That's miserable!!! We've got the flu going around our neighborhood and I can SENSE that it's going to hit us pretty soon. Nathan has been a nightmare and I just know I'll take him in and find double ear infections and a sinus infection. So so sorry! I hope you guys are feeling better!
