Relentlessly Sick

I’m finally feeling back to normal now. But this weekend Allan seems to have gotten the stomach flu and Brooklyn has something but I have no idea what it is. Saturday afternoon she randomly got a fever of 103.
Her fever has been doing fine with children’s motrin and after a phone call to her doctor today we decided to wait until tomorrow to see if the fever breaks before bringing her in.

I want to avoid antibiotics if possible because she just had a round of antibiotics earlier this month. I try to avoid medicines with my kids when possible and most definitely want to avoid two antibiotic treatments in the same month!

She has no other symptoms. Right now her temperature is 99.8 after some motrin.

In other non-exciting news, since I’ve been feeling better I spent my entire morning cleaning. It’s crazy being physically able to do so much housework. I was actually happy cleaning!

And also, I never blogged about how I’ve been feeling the baby move (for two weeks now) but while I was sick, for three days, I didn’t feel him/her move at all and was starting to get just a little worried.
Today she/he has been back to her/his normal kicking so that’s a huge worry gone šŸ™‚

Um, what else can I throw into this random post?

I went shopping this afternoon. It was the first time I left the house for 5 days and it was fantastic! Who knew shopping could be so fun? Not me!
I took Sierra and Payson while Allan and Brooklyn were home sleeping.

At our local store I found some coconut milk yogurt for Payson. You have no idea how excited I am about that. It’s packed full with good probiotics and will go great in his smoothies.
I also got some kale to add to his smoothies. He loves smoothies and they’re one of my favorite things to give him for snacktime. I often freeze them and let him have them in popsicle form and he can’t get enough of them!

What else? Anything? It’s been a boring week!

I took a few really awful pictures today just because.

Payson helping me with dishes. He pulls my rubber gloves off the counter and shuts the dishwasher or climbs onto the dishwasher or empties out the dishwasher or throws his toys into the dishwasher.
Very helpful.

When Allan’s not sleeping he’s getting a bit of work done on his laptop.

One of Payson’s favorite activities. Pull out all of the containers of rice milk from the cupboard and open the tops. Right before I snapped this he hit his head. Poor thing.

Before I made Brooklyn take a nap they had snacktime and colored, too.


We have yet to put her sheets back on from the puke fest. Even though they’re clean. We’ve been sick and sheets on the bed hasn’t even been on my radar of things to get done. lol

  • My Sierra had the same symptoms back in September, turned out she had Mono! Maybe have your Dr. check for that, at least to rule it out. The best thing is, no medicine for it, just lots of fluids, rest, and careful of physical activity b/c it can enlarge their spleen.

  • hope you all g a complete healing from this junk! it is hard to dreal with when you have little ones and cannot be out of commission for very long. glad that you are feeling better!! i love you all so much.
