My luck has run out....

I guess I should count my blessings that the triplets are almost 3 and I've never had to deal with vomiting babies, but the curse has finally struck. Cody was immunized on Tuesday and later that afternoon began running a 102.2 fever. I assumed it was due to his shots and began the Tylenol and Motrin. The next day he still had fever and began vomiting... ugh.

On Thursday Jadon joined in the mix and began throwing up... then on Friday Kaylee started up as well. We all went to the pediatrician Friday afternoon and they still have ear infections which previous antibiotics haven't gotten rid of (drug resistant apparently) so they are on a new antibiotic (Augmentin) which causes stomach upset and diarrhea.

This is the 1st time any of the kids have ever had ear infections and we just can't seem to be able to get rid of them. Not sure why after 3 years they are just now getting ear infections. Well, we gave the kids their drugs last night and they all three proceeded to throw them up. Jadon and Kaylee in their beds, and Cody all over Jerry. You would have thought Jerry had been dunked in nuclear waste.... I've been puked on several times now, but haven't made a huge issue over it. Ahhh, Men....

Well, the antibiotic is upsetting already upset stomachs and now has the kids going at the other end as well - UGH, UGH, UGH. Needless to say, our house is stinky. Called the "on call" doctor this morning and got some anti-nausea meds so hopefully they will help. How Addison has avoided the illness is beyond me. Once the other 3 are healthy again she will probably get it.

I am exhausted.... I mean really exhausted. REALLY EXHAUSTED!!!! I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Kaylee is on the potty with the runs, Jadon is throwing up, Addison is having a fit because I accidentally flushed her tee tee without thinking, and Cody is in his high chair screaming because he dropped his drink. It's like this all day long.
I couldn't survive this without the help of my DAD (thanks Dad) and husband (oh, my Mom is also sick).

Jerry has done TONS of laundry today between the soiled sheets, clothes, towels, etc. THANK YOU JERRY - I LOVE YOU!!!

Pray everyone is well soon!!!
Note the sheets on the floor to help keep the rug clean.....

Did I mention I am exhausted?
