To Hell And Back

It's been a rough week! A rough two weeks actually. It all started with Allison getting sick which ended up being RSV. The RSV then turned into pneumonia.

Emily was sick with an ear infection and really bad cold. The doctor said it may be pneumonia as well but didn't do the chest x-ray because she would be on antibiotics for the ear infection that would kill the pneumonia if she had it.

I was sick with a bad cold which turned into a sinus infection and I am thinking bronchitis as well.

Erik was sick - but wasn't home to share in all our misery so that is good.

It's been rough - especially being the only parent taking care of two very sick kids while I am sick too!

BUT...sunnier days are ahead (well not really - we are expecting rain here) because we are all pretty much better. Today I cleaned the house to rid this house of all the germs and I am excited we can now go out and about for something other than going to the doctor. It's sad when they know you at the valet parking at the hospital and at the pediatric check in. It's also sad when I see the pediatrician more than my own husband!

Looking forward to Easter and to spending time with family this next week!

You poor things! Glad to hear you're all better though. I hate being sick or even having a sick kiddo. Couldn't imagine having two without the husband home to help. You go, MAMA!

Have a FABulous Easter! Enjoy that much needed family time.

Also, are the mustard seed colors still out in your area? We should get together.
