For my military-loving friends, here’s our Sit Rep (Situation Report):
Clare, did in fact, have the chicken pox. She scratched the area so badly it became a staph infection. ACTION: Taking bleach baths every night x3, bleaching the tub afterward, along with her bed, toys and towels and on antibiotics for seven days.
Will and John Paul had a nasty strain of bacterial pneumonia. ACTION: On antibiotics for 10 days and we’re watching them like hawks to make sure they COVER THEIR MOUTHS when they cough.
Anna-Laura got the worst of it. Her bacterial pneumonia turned into all-out pneumonia. ACTION: Her first round of antibiotics was still resulting in horrific fevers (103 and above), so in addition to her 10-day treatment, she also had a shot of antibiotics last night. If that doesn’t work, it’s off to the hospital we go. We head back to the doctor in the AM to get the verdict.
By no small miracle, Luke is still well and doing beautifully in therapy.
Scott and I are sortof on the verge of losing our sanity. But other than that minor detail, Dr Pepper and the gym are keeping us off the ledge. I really should’ve just posted a one word description of life here the last couple of weeks: Seriously???!!
