Sickness Saga Continued...

So when last I wrote I was anticipating taking Sarah to the doctor on Monday. I ended up taking both Sarah and Ella for fevers and just not their normal behavior. However, they both checked out okay and our dear doctor didn't even charge us a co-pay. She said that it looks like Sarah has 2 molars coming in soon, so that explains her fever. Ella's lethargy could have been explained by over-tired state or slight dehydration still from being sick earlier in the week. Who knows??? By the time I got home with those two, Kate had broken out in a terrible looking rash all over her trunk. I called the doctor Tuesday morning when it was still there because I was concerned she might be allergic to her antibiotic... which she was fighting like crazy to not have to take anyway! Based on my description they presumed the rash was part of an illness and not a reaction. Thankfully it was gone by today.

In the mean time, overnight Tuesday both Scott and I were sick with a stomach bug, food poisoning, or something. He was in NYC in a hotel room, and I was here with the girls. All day Wednesday we had to rely on other people to care for the girls because I was completely out of commission....meanwhile, Scott called in sick for his flight and then had to wait in the hotel until he felt well enough to dead-head home. After a miserable 12- 24 hours we are all back together and seem to be on the mend. Hopefully I'll be able to start posting pictures again much more often!
