On the mend?!?!?

I tell ya...when you have 5 kids, it can take a LONG time for everyone to be healthy!

~Thanksgiving...6 out 7 of us got the flu...took 2 weeks for it to pass then we went right into.....

~Baby S got scarlet fever
~Mommy got really bad strep. throat...OUCH!!
~Brother T got a fever..was in bed for 24 hours
~Daddy not feeling good..spent most of the day in bed
~Brother I had/has persistent nasty boogies
~Baby C got a nasty ear infection..given Amoxicillin
~TODAY!!!! Guess C is allergic to penicillin (nasty itchy body rash)
~Baby C still has ear infection (even after 5 days of amoxicillin) now on Zithromax
~So far big sissy Tr. is staying healthy!

Praying we are getting past this...I MISS church soooooooooo bad!!!!!!!!! These are all LIGHT afflictions. So many precious friends come to mind as I grumble about our silly aliments. We LOVE you guys are praying continually!!!

We are missing you all so much. We are all praying that the family is well again soon. I feel like the nasty mommy saying, "wash your hands," "Blow your nose," "cover your mouths." Meanwhile I'm protecting the baby from the head colds going around our home. I can't wait for all of you to come over soon and see Mr. Joseph.

Hope you all get better soon!

Thank you so much for sharing your families story!

My husband and I are in the process of adopting a child out of our states foster care system and the wait can be a bit hard to handle. Finding blogs of families who have been there is so helpful.

Praying you all feel better soon!
