Back to School

(Day 13 of NaBloPoMo)


FINALLY! The kids are feeling better (mostly) and I am sending them back to preschool/daycare TODAY!

About a month ago The Princess had strep. 3 weeks later she had strep AGAIN. Then just 5 days later she and The Superhero got sick again. This time it was a NASTY virus that caused HIGH temperatures, body aches, runny noses, watery sick looking eyes, and COUGHS. The Princess has been on steroids for 3 days for her croupy sounding cough. We have given her countless breathing treatments.

We took them both to Urgent Care last Sunday and were told it was just a virus for both and to wait it out.

They were both not getting better by day 6, so I took them back to the pedi and they both have ear infections! The Princess has a single and The Superhero has a double. More antibiotics for both.

A few days later now and they are finally starting to get better. The cough is still lingering, but the fevers are GONE and they are acting more normal and fighting with each other/annoying ME. :-)

Now, I just need to keep The Princess healthy until our trip to Indiana in 1 1/2 weeks. I am thinking she will go to daycare this week and stay home with me next week before the trip. (Can't wait to see my family and to get to meet Hallie!)

I am SO looking forward to being about to get my work done without interruption this week and not having to keep the kids quiet. Then hopefully, when they ARE home, I can focus on just them.

Your month sounds like our month! It's been one illness after another over here. So I know first-hand how happy you must be to have kids, who're finally doing better and who're both in school today. I hope everyone is able to get 100% healthy and stay healthy, so you can just go and enjoy that trip to Indiana!!!
