A Whirlwind Weekend!

I last posted October 15. There's a good reason for that. October 16, things started to get dicey. We started out with a fever for Sierra. That progressed to a sore throat. By Saturday night she was screaming out every 30 minutes or so in pain. That was fun. Sunday morning Josh left at some un-holy, the sun wasn't even up, hour for an out of state interview (we carried the sleeping girls to the van and I dropped him at the airport....the girls did not go back to sleep when we got home). We had been to the doctor twice, called in to the nurse twice and still had no real idea what was wrong with Sierra. Sunday night was horrible. More screaming, lots of crying, I seriously considered taking her to the hospital at 2am. Few things in this world make you feel more helpless than having your 5 year old screaming and crying and saying, "I just can't take this! I just want it to stop!". Then today Sedona woke up with a fever. She was still happy, but the fever shot up pretty quick, so we made our third trip to the doc (to see a new one). She pretty much took one look at the two of them and said, "I'm very sure this is flu". Sedona got tamiflu. Poor Sierra is out of luck b/c she's already on day 4 (nevermind the fact that I took her in on day 1). Believe me, there are a lot more symptoms, medicines, drama, and sleeplessness involved in this story, but I'm just too dang tired to tell it. Sierra has gotten worse each day and I think she's finally slightly better tonight, so that's good. I have rocked this illness single parent style, which is kind of a confidence booster (but I will be SOOO glad when Josh gets home and I can take an uninterrupted nap!). I am very very very grateful to a few guardian angels that have done various things to make this easier on us.

So, oink, oink, baby! I no longer have to debate whether to get the vaccines or not, we can consider ourselves covered!
