Feverish Frenzy

I've been checking temps, giving Tylenol, and trying to keep kids hyrdrated. Alex was sick over the weekend and is now feeling better but the other four kids are now sick. They have been running a temp and coughing. With Alex the fever lasted three days and the cough is still lingering. I imagine we have at least one more day of feverish kids. Last night around 1 AM Curtis came into the room to tell me he was hot. So I took his temp and decided he needed some Tylenol, so we went downstairs to get him medicine and a drink. He sat down in the family room and then came to the kitchen while I was getting his stuff. To make a long story short he ended up passing out on me twice before he got his Tylenol and drink. Jeff then helped him back to bed where he slept fitfully. He is doing better today as long as I keep Tylenol in him. The other kids don't seem to have near the trouble with running a temp as he does. Tonight Julissa came to me and wanted me to take her "number" (temperature).

Curtis on the couch. The couch is where he spent the day.

Samuel on the loveseat. This is where Sam spent the day.

Alex feeling much better. He's been doing the boy's chores in the kitchen. He has done a great job!

Briana looking great even though she is running a temp of 100 degrees.

Julissa in Mama's chair.

Hi Dixie,

Good to hear from you again. Your kids are so cute! I must say you don't look much different than 12 years ago! (Has it been that long??!!) I may have to pull out my old yearbook :-) Jeff has a little less hair LOL.

This is the great thing about the internet, you get to reconnect with people. I have enjoyed reading through your blog. I hope your kids are feeling better is tough when little ones are sick.

It is certainly nice to be able to get back in touch with friends of days gone by. It is hard to believe that it has been 12 years since IBS days.

I hope you had a great time at Sea World and a very Happy Birthday!
