How do you stay on track when there is sickness in the home?
All was well... so we thought. The last four weeks have been filled with stomach viruses and crusty noses at our house. The week after Christmas we were on the road travelling and realized that four out of six of us had a stomach virus. We survived that and once we were well we attended a birthday party. The party throwers failed to mention that they had a stomach virus. Guess what? No surprise... we got it... five out of six of us. This weekend we went to church, but laid low... no big ventures out. We went out to eat last night... and I'm glad we got out the house for a bit because we did not realize a virus was coming. ;) All the kids were put to bed and we were getting ready to drift off to dreamland ourselves. Suddenly, we heard screams from Caden. I think his head was hurting and his fave was bright read and hot. It was obvious, but the thermometer confirmed our suspicions.... 102.3. My husband gave him some tea and I gave him Motrin. Within thirty minutes he drifted off to sleep and I continued to sit with him. I never go to sleep until I see a drop in fever. Suddenly, Caden started talking in his sleep.... so sweet... until the puke began. Oh, thank God for my husband who came running to help!!
So.... How do you stay on track when there is sickness in the home? We are always having someone sick here... so frustrating... ;) (trying to smile through it)
