ER Sunday

Hey all,

We're still hanging in there. Actually I'm doing pretty good with all of this sickness stuff. I tend to do better when things are most definitely out of my control. These last couples months have been just that. Now, don't get me wrong, I would love to have a healthy family for more than a week but that's just not the case right now so I'll have to be ok with that.

Abby spiked a big fever on Saturday morning and it didn't come down by Sunday morning so we had to take her to the only place that was open, the ER. Not the best place to go if you don't have to... just my opinion. They actually were pretty good there. They checked her out, listened to her lungs, accessed her port, took blood, ran a CBC, and did a blood culture. Her fever was still in the 102.5-103.5 range so they gave her a shot of Roseffen, an antibiotic, just in case she had a blood infection. I assume the culture was negative since they didn't call back.

Abby's fever is gone now, her cough is getting better but I think Anna is getting it now. Lily already had it and Tiffany too so I guess Anna is the last one for this virus unless I catch it. I think I have it, but it has been tolerable for me. Tiffany also had something, it turned into a sinus infection so she went to the doctor yesterday and they put her on antibiotics. Hopefully she will fell better tonight.

So, that's life in the sick lane. Isn't it fun? I am definitely looking forward to Disneyland... I think we are all going to wear masks on the plane though!
