3 weeks ago this family was happy, healthy and BLESSED!! However some things have changed in the last 3 weeks...
First, we are still INCREDIBLY BLESSED with friends that love us and pray for us daily! We want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! Beyond that though we are not happy or healthy...:(
About 3 weeks ago we all slowly came down with a stomach bug. :( It made its way around the whole family and when it got to the mama it put her in the hospital. We later found out it was something much more serious. Apparently I caught the bug and got food poisoning all in one day! SCORE!! 3 days in the hospital stunk, but 18 bags of fluid and some of them with Potassium since my levels were low, and some nausea meds and I was a new woman!! :)
That was until tummy bug #2 made its rounds and all 3 kids got sick AGAIN!!! Yep, its true. Round two was much worse then round one for the kids. They ended up in the ER with IV's and Iv fluids.....at 3am!
Finally just when we think we are in the clear and home free we wake up in the middle of the night to Mr Eli wheezing like his champion wheezing sister Rylie! The next morning it was confirmed that Mr Eli has RSV. So onto the 2nd bottle of Motrin and the 2nd bottle of Tylenol and the steroids, breathing treatments and steam showers....Fun! (note my sarcasm)
So without going into much more detail I have now completed 18 loads of laundry, gone through 2 bottles of Clorox wipes, 1 can of Lysol and half of a container of bleach so that HOPEFULLY and PRAYERFULLY we can be DONE with all of this mess and enjoy the spring! :)
On a side though, there was a small period of time when we were well. So we had a little photo shoot done with BMullniaxPhotography.com! They really caught Rylies personality well! :) Here is a sneek peek. I will upload the rest later..Enjoy!
Hoping you have been well,
