Cycle of sickies

Remember how we used to "lock down" for RSV season so that our premature babies wouldn't run the risk of getting sick? Yeah, I'm kinda wishing for those days right about now!

Just since school started, we've dealt with colds, vomiting, impetigo, more colds, more vomiting, four simultaneous cases of strep throat, and—as if that weren't enough—last week Lucy was hospitalized for pneumonia!

Thankfully, she had to stay only a little more than 24 hours, as she was not exactly a pleasant patient (despite her sparkly dress and unicorn sticker):


With our first trip to the hospital since the NICU behind us, I was hoping for a little break from illness. But not long after the kids got to school today, I got a call from the nurse, saying that Dahlia had a temperature of 101.7. At my mom's urging, I took Dahlia straight from school to the doctor. Diagnosis: strep!

Here we go again ...

I don't know if anyone told you this....it took me a few rounds of strep....but make sure you throw away everyones toothbrush.....the strep can live in there. Anything that's plastic they play with....put in the dishwasher ....I hope it ends soon. Strep is NASTY.

I am glad you are still able to find humor in the middle of all this illness! The line about Lucy's sparkly dress/unicorn sticker made me laugh out loud. Praying for quick healing for Dahlia and SUPER STRONG immune systems for all four kids! Love you guys! -Miss Chelsea
