Sick Days

Whenever you go to the doctor with one child, you know you're going to be going again for the other in days to come.  That's just how it works.  One gets sick and then everyone gets sick.  

Addison was sick about 1 1/2 ago so we took both of the girls to the doctor to see what was going on.  Neither one of them had much of an appetite but Landry wasn't too bad.  Addison came back with strep and RSV and Landry just RSV.  So we got Addison started on antibiotics and began down the road of sickness.

Landry was getting any better, worse actually.  We loaded up the car again and went to the pediatrician's office.  Addison knows where to turn and can point out the building since we've been so much lately.  Landry came back with a double ear infection, RSV, and strep.  She hit the home run.  

Later that day I made an appointment with our family practitioner, because I wasn't feeling too hot either.  I came away with a script to clear me up.  So from Thursday to Sunday were fun filled days with me and the girls hanging out at the house recouping from various ailments.  

Landry has since gone to the doctor to get her RSV looked at.  One of her ears was still a little red (another antibiotic to heal that) and they want us to continue doing the breathing treatments till Thursday.  Everyone's on the uptick, but I'll be glad when this is all over.  

She lasts about 2 minutes and then it's a fight.  Addison gets so upset when Landry is yelling because she thinks I'm hurting her.  It's so sweet.
