One better and another one sick

Joanna is so much better today! I love when I go to get her out of her baby bed in the mornings and she is smiling at me! Still has a little stuffy nose but oh so much better!! Now Timothy is my sick one. He actually started running a fever last Wednesday night, but it broke during the night and on Thursday morning he was fine. Friday he was not feeling so good and then by Saturday morning he was running fever and would be ok as long as there was no fever (his same silly self). On Sunday night his fever got up to 103.9 and on Monday morning I took him in and we thought it was viral. Then Monday night his fever was up again and he has really gotten sicker ever since. Yesterday Bryan took him to the Dr. (I actually had an appointment myself so we had to divide and conquer) and strep test was negative but his white blood cell count was up, so something is going on. They gave him a shot and some medicine. His fever last night and this morning was still 103.5. Praying real hard that he is better in the morning!

I will have to admit it is soooo hard to keep the little ones apart. Timothy and Joanna don't understand about staying away from the other children and not spreading germs. When Timothy is not running a fever he "feels" like he is fine and he wants to play and not miss a beat. I am trying real hard to love on Timothy and Joanna with out spreading sickness. It is hard but being a mommy I just can't say no when they look at you with those sad eyes and say "Mommy, hold me." I am praying that next week we all be back to feeling great!

Sweet picture of Timothy and Joanna. It is so hard for us grandparents to know you have little ones not feeling well and we cannot be there to help out and old them. We are praying for you all; Timothy to feel much better; Joanna to keep feeling better; Bryan to feel better; you to get well; Isaac, Sarah and Elijah to not get sick. We love you all very much. Please let us know if you want us to come up and help.
