Here's the low-down (and I mean LOW):
~The last two weeks we have been trading colds- all of us.
~That came on the heels of Andy's two week back problem.
~Then Monday night Lydie began to vomit, which continued throughout most of the night.
~Everyone stayed home on Tuesday and Wednesday. It appeared we were healed.
~The colds were a little better, so we went on our field trip Thursday.
~Thursday evening Toot got the stomach bug.
~Lydie had an upset stomach, this time at the other end, if you know what I mean.
~Friday we all stayed home again. Jaybird's cold was not getting better, but worse.
~This morning I took Jaybird to the doctor- sinus AND ear infection.
~Tonight Andy is nauseous. Now 3 of the 5 of us have colds, the baby has a cough.
~Oh, and the clencher, the cat got into the stew...and threw up.
Now for the math. That's:
1 sinus infection
1 ear infection
2 stomach bugs
1 more, possibly
1 sick cat
5 soiled cushions or carpet spots to scrub
2 trash cans to rinse
5 nasty "upset tummy" diapers today
3 board games played with the sick kids
4 new movies watched
1,000 legos underfoot
1 crazy mom!
