I'm Back...Well Kinda

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Allie is still sick...she's improving though I think. She still has a cough that I'm not real fond of. Her two top teeth are about to bust through and her gums are incredibly swollen..I know that's not helping much in the feel good department.

Lucas has greatly improved. His cough is almost gone and his ear is much better. He's griped everytime that he's had to take his medicine and oh how I'm so ready for it to be gone. He enjoys it so much that I forgot to give it to him yesterday and he conveniently forgot to remind me in the morning and at bedtime.

Jacob is miraculously better! I took him back to the doctor today and for now we're calling it a virus. About a year or alittle more ago he woke up one morning and couldn't move...every joint on his body hurt him. He couldn't walk at all and when he moved he cried. They did a ton of tests and xrays and thought it was a form of arthritis that occured after a virus..within a week or so it was gone. The doctor has said that if it happens again she is going to send us to a rheumatologist.

Caleb seems to have improved too. He's been playing outside in the summerlike weather that we've had and has only had a runny nose for two days now.

As far as stuff around the house it's crazy. I've got boxes of old clothes in the living room that I'm going through to figure out what I've got to get for this spring/summer and what I've already got. I have tons of laundry and cleaning to do. I did happen to squeeze in getting the sheets all washed and bathrooms cleaned this weekend but not much further. I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone in the next couple of days. So get ready..I'm back...at least I'm coming around the corner!

I hate cleaning the house in the aftermath of a lot of sickness. I tend to let things go when we are all sick, like the dishes and such! I'm glad to hear that some of you are on the mend!

This time of the year is so hard on so many people with little ones. Soon as they get better they get hit with some other nasty bug. Bless your heart!

Glad to hear that you're turning the corner! A healthy family is definitely a blessing, and not something to take for granted. :)

So glad to read that you and your family are going to make it through to the other side. Holy moly! You have been through the ringer.

Hope once things return to normal that you are able to get the rest you need too!

It's so encouraging to hear that everyone is on the mend. When I read that your daughter was not sleeping well, I really felt for you. Mommies plain out don't get a break, and being deprived of sleep is just THE WORST! I'm betting it's those teeth waiting to break through that have been keeping your little one up at night. I just went through the same with my daughter. Of course, she also had an ear infection along with the gum pain. That never helps! :)

Hope you get caught up on everything and maybe even get some "me time" in there at some point.
