When It Rains...


Owen started throwing up Saturday morning. He finally stopped on Tuesday, but then came the dreaded diarrhea. He's back at school now but he's still so, so tired. He's lost 10% of his body weight in less than a week (3 lbs.) His little bones are poking out. Poor sweet boy.

And now... I have it. If only I could loose 10% of my body weight. Hmmmm...
Praying that Finn and Daddy-O are spared and that we don't infect my sister and her family who come to visit tomorrow (YAY!!!!)

Thankfully the weather is cooperating now and I can open the windows and let the breeze carry the yuck away.

First, yuck! I'm so sorry that y'all are sick. It's especially hard on the little ones (witness the weight loss).

Second...OMG my 2.5 yr old weighs almost 35lbs. I knew he was too big! (and you've seen the pictures, the kid is not fat :)

Poor Owen! I'm glad he's feeling better (somewhat) and sorry you're sick. You'd think we'd have undentable immune systems by now.

Nora had this illness this week. She's better (we think).

Oooh, I am hoping all the others are spared.

Sometimes I eat something past it's expiration date thinking to myself, "What's the worst that can happen? Maybe I'll get sick and lose some weight." I'll try anything but diet and exercise.

Poor you, I hope that this is the end of winter bugs for us all. If I have to strip one more bed (5 times in 24 hours is the record) I will lose it. Be well.

It's just crazy how sick everyone has been this year. Hoping your "ick" blew away with the breeze.
