Illness Update

ell,  I have to say I've had better holiday weekends...  I have better weekends all around....

On Tuesday, I picked the kids up from school (their last day) and it was casually mentioned as we were walking out that one of the kids had tested positive for Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease.  Great....  well, Wednesday evening Cody started running a low grade fever, followed by the triplets shortly after.  The low grade fever quickly turned into 103+ fevers, followed by mouths full of sores and ulcers making the consumption of any food or beverage unbearable.  Are we having fun yet??? 

Trapped in the house with 4 sick kids, watching nonstop animated flix, and lots of crying.... not fun.  Well, to make things worse on Sunday afternoon I fell victim to the illness and started running fever.  My fever has reached a high of 103 and the throat is starting to get yucky.

My parents are going to see Baby Lane (my nephew) this week so they can't come help me due to the exposure risk and Jerry can't easily take off work... so I am home sick with kids which I have to say are feeling better now....  WHOA!!!  Back up.  Yes, they are feeling better now, but Kaylee unexplicitly threw up her chocolate milk this morning all over the front of her PJs and the sofa....  not a great way to start the day.  Gonna be a rough week I'm afraid, do I dare say it can only get better....


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry! I'm sending happy and healthy thoughts your way...and hopes that your week improves quickly!

  2. Oh NO!!!!!! I am so sorry. I hear that is such a painful sickness. I am so sorry you got it too!! This too shall pass!! Praying for you in the meantime!!

  3. Yuck - Emmy had that all last week! Emmy loved strawberry jello when she was sick. We are thinking about y'all. Get better soon.
