We. Are. Sick.

We spent the weekend visiting my parents, brother and a sister.  However, we woke up Saturday morning with two sick children.  By that evening, another one was down.  We left my mom's house Sunday morning asap to get the sickies home and wound up with another down last evening.  Today, one more is sick.   Fevers are running up to 102.8.  The only one who is not sick is the baby!!  Nursing may be keeping him well!

Jeff stayed home today to help out as 5 of them are sick.  He took 3 to the doctor this afternoon and waited....no flu and no strep!!  We are thankful for that, but this is some type of rhinovirus that will just have to run its course.  Lots of liquids, ibuprofin and bed.  Should be over in 3-4 days!!!

I am starting to get a little congested so I took a good dose of my tonic....remember my tonic?  I don't know if anyone else will take any, but I plan on taking it morning and night to see if it works.    Tonight the kids are requesting chicken soup, saltines, grape juice, ginger ale and popsicles.  Jeff is out collecting our dinner.   BTW, it's raining again.  Last week was glorious and we cut out a good bit of school so we could enjoy outdoor time.  Tomorrow I think my sick children will watch A Man for All Seasons that just came in the mail from NetFlix.  It is about Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More.  That may be our school for tomorrow!
