The Mad Cycle

For those who wonder why I haven't been posting much lately...it is because we have been fighting this mad cycle of sickness! It all started two weeks ago when Bennett woke up from a nap with a fever, which continued for several more days and evolved into a runny nose and cough. Well she finally started to round the corner, but then Preston began showing the same signs. However, being such a little guy, his turned into a double ear infection. After 7 days of antibiotics, he is feeling much better. Unfortunately, I caught something this weekend, and have been fighting a major head cold for the past 5 days....with a headache, running nose, itchy eyes and sore throat! You would think that we deserve a break, but poor Bennett has it AGAIN! Daddy captured the moment perfectly today while at the doctor's office with her:


Our little girl had to have her finger pricked to get her white blood count to determine whether or not she had pneumonia. Fortunately she does not...only another bad cold. Though she isn't quite herself, and she is a little pathetic at times, a sucker always puts a smile on her face!

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. That cloud of sickness made it's way through our house too. We all had a turn. I seemed to have it the worst - it just lingered on and of course, I couldn't take anything!! I remember when Wyatt used to get those ear infections. Not fun! When baby isn't sleeping, no one is sleeping!! Hope you are on the mend soon...
