Two weeks ago, my second daughter got sick. What I thought would be this quick little cold from her turned into a miserable mess! We had sick children for 9 days straight and one week later, my oldest sill has a runny nose.
This is our summary:
Kaleigha: fever for 6 days, higest temp 103, possible pre-pnemonia & ear infection.
Jillian: double ear infection, one ruptured ear drum, fever & cough.
Drew: Bronchilitis, fever of 102.7, ear infection, cough & pitiful feeling.
6 doctors appointments, 1 urgent care visit and one visit to draw Drew's blood at Children's hosp.
We missed four days of work, three days of preschool missed and paid $200 in co-pays & $150 for childcare we didn't use.
It stunk. But, my children are alright and healing up nice and healthy. In the midst of this I learned of a friend from high school whose 8 year old daughter is battling cancer for the second time, with a grim prognosis. Perspective, hmm.
