Repeat and repeat again...

This weekend went OK. One of my dear friends gave us her living room furniture this weekend so that was quite a treat. We now have a love seat and couch...as well as a lazy boy chair and a sitting chair. The kids are thrilled that everyone has their own piece of furniture to call their own for movie night. Nobody has to sit on the floor.

From there though...everything has gone down hill. Skyler has ran a fever the past two nights....I'm not sure why. He has a cold but I cant understand how he can be sick again after he was just sick last week. Could it be that he is so new to daycare and they are just passing it back and forth to eachother? And can it happen that quickly and often? It only spikes in the evening and then breaks before morning. Matthew was complaining of an ear ache. He just missed three days of school last week because he was sick and yesterday (Sunday night) I had to rush him to the urgent care where he was quickly and swiftly diagnosed with an ear infection. So that makes two ear infections for him in two months. WHAT THE HECK?!?!?!?!

So yesterday when I had finally got home from Walgreen's getting Matt's prescription, I get home, get Skyler's fever managed and sit down on the chair to sleep (I cant sleep in my bed because the girl did the laundry which is a whole different story)...and low and behold Victoria comes in crying.

"Mom," she says. "I didn't want to tell you because I thought it would go away but I have a pain so bad in my lower back that I can hardly walk and it made me fall to the ground it is so painful." I immediately think "kidney infection" and give her ibuprofen as well as a heating pad and send her to bed. I am about to wake her up to see if this mysterious pain has disappeared over night.

Pray for me friends. I feel so alone and frustrated. Three kids out of four not feeling well. I have to make it to work. I know this is a big complaining post but it is my life right now and I am just distraught.

I feel like the kids just keep getting sick over and over again (repeat and repeat again). I hope I can get through this week.

Help me Jesus!!!!!

I'm sorry....I don't know how you do it on your own, I honestly don't. I'm sure Sky's deal is just daycare. Every kid I know that's been in daycare, spends the first year being sick ALL the time. Hang in there!

I'm glad the furniture brought a bright spot to your day. Does this mean you got rid of the swallow-you-up blue couch? :)

Thinking of you. It must be so hard to have the majoirty of your children not feeling so well. :-( Hope they start feeling MUCH better soon.

I don't mind reading posts like this, as I have two kids of my own, and it's nice to hear about someone else's motherly woes!! Sucks to have one sick kid, let alone three. You're really getting slammed this time. My daughter has had the puking flu three times in a month and a half, and the last time she had it, my son and my husband had it too, so everyone but me was puking all weekend. What a treat to have the whole family sick. Praying that your daughter is ok, nothing serious, and hopefully your family feels better soon! Keep your chin up, you're doing a fantastic job {hugs}
