Sick Again

I haven't had time to blog the past few days because I've got sick kiddos. I don't really know what's wrong with them except that they obviously feel bad and have dr-confirmed ear infections. But no runny noses. Very strange. Runny noses have always preceded sickness before. Oddly enough, not this time. Thomas has been sickly since Monday, Reagan since Tues. Zachary has seemed a little off Tues and Wed, Jonathan seemed a little off yesterday. They all seem a little better today. Mostly there had just been a lot of fussiness and crying and poor napping. Overnight sleeping has been fine, but naps have been cryfests. Eating has been affected. We have watched WAY more TV than normal, but it's the only thing that can content them for more than five minutes, although not if I leave. I have to stay right there with them. Yesterday was so bad, Jim actually came home from work to help me with them because when he called to check on us he could tell I was on the verge of tears myself. It was naptime and I had two kids crying and not napping and I was trying to cuddle and rock them both at the same time and it just wasn't working and it was awful awful awful! Reagan is the worst too because she's hoarse and every time she coughs or tries to clear her thoat, she starts crying like it hurts so bad, and the cry is so pitiful-sounding because she's hoarse. It just breaks your heart to hear it! And she looks at you with those big doe eyes like, "Why can't you make it stop hurting?"

Sigh. But today is better, a little. I'm survivng. It's naptime and no one is crying. Jim won't need to come home early today. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better! Keep us in your prayers!

Okay for whatever reason, I can't get the spellcheck to work and I don't feel like checking it myself, so please excuse any spelling errors.
