Sick, Sick, Sick, Sick, Sick

Boy oh boy have we been sick this week. I think it all started with me about 2 1/2 weeks ago I had a scratchy throat and kept loosing my voice well it never went away. All last weekend little sis was so cranky and running a mild fever, so I called the doc on Monday to get her in. Well when Hunter came home from school he complained that his chest hurt when he coughed. So luckily I was able to get him in to. So Hunt had an earn infection and pneumonia in one lung, Aspen luckily tested negative for RSV and the doc said Ridge looked okay. Well all week things kept progressing (many, many nights of waking up with sick cranky kids) and finally this morning I had had enough. I took me and Ridge in and after 2 1/2 hours at instacare (I got there 15 minutes after they opened) Ridge has 2 ear infections, starting with pneumonia and I have bronchitis and a sinus infection plus pulled muscles in my back from coughing so hard.

Hunter is feeling great after his antibiotic thank goodness. Justin and Apsen still feel like crap but seem to be surviving. I still think the worst thing about being a mom is being sick yourself. No time to take care of yourself.

I had to take this picture today. This is right after we got home from the doctor. Ridge isn't asleep but he is just worn out on the floor. You know he must be sick if he is not running around like a wild maniac!
