Last Week: Post Edit



Sunday night Lila was miserable and Alice starting coughing like crazy...

Monday: Dr. appt. with Alice and Lila. Alice=post nasal drip; Lila=cold and double ear infections. Super.

Tuesday: The vomit begins. Alice can't keep anything down. Delightful. Lila is improving with antibiotic.

Wednesday: Call to Dr. office. Nurse says to buy a humidifier and saline drops. reduce Alice's feeds. Spend the day sucking snot out of Alice's nose. More barf. Lila is better.

Thursday: More barf.

Friday: Back to Dr. Alice has RSV. She has lost weight. Dr. says to sleep Alice upright, in her bouncy chair or car seat. Continue with snot sucker. Give rice cereal in formula--Hey Doc, did you know rice cereal clogs bottles? FYI. More barf. Back to Dr. on Tuesday to see how she's doing.

Saturday: More barf.

Sunday: No barf. Perhaps things are starting to look up...

FYI-Things are not looking up... Lila has the chicken pox. Who gets chicken pox anymore, you ask? The answer is no one. We can give a big thanks to cancer for not letting Lila get immunized like normal kids. She is literally like a week away from starting her immunizations. Splendid. Oh, and her ear infections did not go away. Starting a new antibiotic today.

Poor babies...including Annie who is my baby. And now the possibility of chicken pox... give you a break. If one gets them, they will all get them. Guess it is better to get it over when they are young.

Ugh, this blog is becoming a real bummer.
Tell your kids to stop being sick and to start doing superadoreablethings so you can blog about that.
Tell Jack it would help if he could immunize Lila himself. That would be superadoreable and really helpful.

After I talked to you on Friday, My neighbor had said that she wanted to find someone who had chickenpox so she could give it to her kids. Oh Darn. Someone wants what you got!
