The Sickies

Normally I don't like to post about the state of my children's wellness.

I like to think I have more interesting stuff to post about than who coughed on whom.

However, it seems for the month of February, I actually haven't had anything interesting going on because the only thing that's been going on is the fact that they've been sick.

I credit Jack for starting us off strong with a case of appendicitis.


One less appendix later, and the Germ Fairy has sprinkled us with 5 colds, 3 sinus infections and an ear infections that will be resulting in tubes in the near future.

Following all that, we conclude with another ear infection



and pneumonia.



Freakin' fabulous.

Fortunately, despite the fact that I look like an prescription drug addict when leaving the pharmacy, we're all starting to feel better.

However, I'm pretty sure I'm going to skip February next year.

Or better yet, a month long hiatus to Hawaii.

Who's with me?

Brandi said...

Sorry everyone is sick. Landon is sick too he is going to the doctor tomorrow afternoon. I think he may have an ear infection. He has been coughing a lot so he is going to have a breathing treatment tonight with a fish just like Charlies.

Bren said...

You poor thing! I'm with ya - group trip to Hawaii - anything to avoid my soon to be new one's first winter!! Glad everyone is on the mend and hope March is much kinder to you!

Oh my goodness, if it weren't for bad luck you'd have no luck at all right now! Hopefully everyone gets well and stays well this time.

Oh no! I am SO sorry; with several kids, you end up with a plethora of germs. It does get better; we finally had a great fall and, so far, a great winter, too. But this is a FIRST for us; up til now, sinus infections, flu, etc have moved into the spare bedroom and refuse to leave til spring. Late spring. But appendicitis? Pnuemonia? Ear tubes? Wow. I bet your doctors LOVE you.... you just bought 'em all new cars! Hope you can kick the sickies to the curb and have a run of good luck!

That was seriously us last year - I was never so happy to see cold and flu season hit the road in my LIFE. Hang in there - the sun is coming!

Your kids look pretty cheery, considering.

And, I'm all over that Hawaii trip. Or cancun. Or belize. I'm flexible.

Oh I am so sorry everyone has been so sick. That does not sound fun at all. Hope everyone is getting better.

Holy cow and I thought our week of being sick was bad. For it being such a short month you sure packed it in!

Hope everyone is all better soon.

Hawaii sound heavenly! Poor things - they have had a rough run with this sickness. Glad to hear you all are feeling better.

Kelli said...

I'll be right there...this time next year! I'm glad you all are feeling better. Being sick for long periods of time is the worst.

Mom24 said...

Wow! That's a really, really bad February. I'm so sorry. I very much hope that March is full of springy-sunshiny weather and that everyone is healthy at your house.

Kmama said...

Holy crap, that's a lot of sickness. I thought we had it bad. I hope everyone is on the mend soon...for your sanity if nothing else!!

Pam said...

Wow, you have had your hands full! Hoping all are well and doing lots better really soon.

Kat said...

OH. MY. WORD.

Okay. I was going to post about my poor little baby having a peach of a cold but I'll just shut up now. ;)

Those poor babies! And poor you! That is some serious stress, all that sickness. :( Let's hope spring is here SOON!
And yes, I am DEFINITELY in for Hawaii!!!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Good grief! They have all been sick! Poor Charlie with his breathing treatment. Eli has had a double ear infection since the beginning of January and I'm thinking we are probably on our way to tubes too!

Krystyn said...

Hawaii? Yes please. Because, seriously, three doctor's visits and three Rx later for our two kids and I'm over it, too.

Angie S said...

Oh my goodness...are you sure you aren't a nurse? Ha! I'll bet you are ready for springtime weather for sure!

I"m in on skipping next Feb as long at there is wine...Hawaii here we come :)
