It's almost 6am and I'm sitting here with a mild sore throat, wishing I were back in bed. This whole week and last week has been filled with sick kids. A week ago ds came home from seminary with a sore throat and by mid morning was looking very tired and groggy. I had to take my youngest to her art and gym class, so I took both girls with me and 2 hrs later I get home and he's asleep. That NEVER happens. Felt his forehead and he was about 101 degrees. Oh dear! So I just let him sleep. That lasted 2 days and he started feeling better until this nasty cough appeared. Just as the weekend was coming, my youngest dd catches the same thing, only a mid minor. Then Sun afternoon my oldest dd comes home and plops on the couch and falls asleep. She, too, has it.
In the meanwhile dh's cough has gotten worse, but at least the fever and sore throat are gone. But the cough sounds sooo bad. Apparently it can last 2 weeks. OY. Now, of course, youngest dd has joined the coughing. It's too bad because last night was our ward's trunk or treat and we had to miss it. :( We're hoping that they will settle enough to go trick or treating on Sat.
Side note: I'm trying to get back into blogging, but there's so much on face book to do that's fun. Awhile ago I wasn't able to do much in the evenings since dh's game didn't like all that extra stuff, so I did the blog. But lately, he hasn't said anything so I'm guessing the games aren't a problem now. I will try and do better, but just haven't been in the mood to write much. Lots of things have happened, just haven't typed yet. lol I will try and do better.
