What a Doll

Peyton is hanging out with her friends. She is 5 weeks old now and I feel good about taking care of her and Tanner by myself. At least I was until Tanner got sick. When he woke up from his nap on Thursday he was so hot. His eyes were red and his skin felt like it was on fire. Like a new mom of 2 kids I called Kipp to come home early from work. And like a good dad, he did. I took Tan to the doctor while Kipp stayed at home with Peyton. Tanner had a temp of 102 and had pink eye. Poor guy.

Kipp spent 2 nights sleeping in Tanner's room waking up to blow his nose and give him drinks. Saturday Tanner broke out in a rash so this time Kipp took him to the doctor. They told us that the rash was a good sign and it meant the infection was leaving his body.

By Saturday night we were all feeling bad.Tonight Kipp is sleeping downstairs so he doesn't get me or Peyton sick. Tanner's fever has gone down but now Kipp has a high temp. As for me and baby girl we are just stuffed up. We are drinking lots of fluids and watching a lot of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. If I were you I would stay away from our house.

i'm sorry to hear about your run of bad luck. of course the way the weather is always changing doesn't help. :( i guess pink eye is going around, because quite a few people i know caught it. feel better soon.

Being sick is the worst! I am so sorry. Just think how much easier it will be when you are all well . . .
