The Medicine Cabinet

As most of you know, we have been battling a lot of sickness around here for the past 3 or 4 weeks. It all started out with common colds, some coughs and sniffles here and there. Then we had runny noses, fevers and sore throats. THEN, within the past 4 days we have had strep throat, pink eye, an ear infection, green snot running out of one little nose in particular and stuffy, cloged up noses everywhere else. Needless to say, "I'M OVER IT!" We took Sophia to the doctor today, after running into our old friend pink eye yesterday, and there we found out she had an ear infection as well. Jayden's throat was also pretty red and she had swollen tonsils. So the doctor put both girls on amoxicillin and I am giving Sophia ear and eye drops. As well as alternating tylenol and advil. She is also having some trouble doing a number 2, so I am also helping her out with that a bit with a little laxitive. All of that on top of her regular meds and our boggie kit, everything we need to suck all that nasty out of her little nose. They both seem to be doing better and hopefully by the end of the week we will be on the fast track to healthy. It's amazing how we went a whole winter last year with hardly anything, and now, not even into the first offical day of winter yet, we have been in this hole of sickness that we just can't seem to get out of. But I have faith that, WE WILL BE BETTER IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS! :)
