Sickness

We have sickness in our house....and I don't like it one bit. Joe came down with a double ear infection two days before school started....luckily after two days of antibiotics he was feeling better and was able to attend the first day of first grade....he's doing so AWESOME by the way......YAY! Anyway...then on Saturday my sweet darling girl...you know, the baby, got so sick...so so so sick and we ended up in the ER on Sunday (before my shift) with my sick girl getting an IV. She was very dehydrated. It took three tries to get that IV in...and we had one unhappy girl. They finally had to use a neonatal (for babies) needle because her little veins kept blowing out. And I'm sick too....thought I had a toothache and it ends up being a sinus infection and uvulitis...look it up.....

The only funny part was this conversation....

Nurse: who painted your pretty nails?
Hannah: My mean sister Megan did.

ps....I forgot to take pictures of the kids on the first day of school.....oops.

You're in good company. We're there too. Not a trip to the ER (I'm knocking on wood right now), but we've got sickies.

Sorry everyone's sick! That's just not fun. Even more tragic, forgetting first day of school pics. I think I did that once. I shuddre to think of it.
