It's been a really sick year!

Today is only February 10, and I have already been to the doctor's office like 8 times, not to mention my 5 day stay in the hospital! I'm so over being sick or having my kids sick! We started off the first weekend of the year sick and it seems like every week someone else is sick with something. I have missed so much work and been to the dr. so much that yesterday when I brought Cade to the dr., the nurse actually said they should just add me to the payroll! She predicted that I would be back before the week was out with Sierra. I was in there last week with Trace and we found out he had the flu! The bad part is that Sierra woke up with a fever this morning and I'm praying its just because she is cutting two more teeth! PLEASE GOD DON'T LET HER GET SICK WITH THE FLU TOO!

My poor Cade right now has strep throat and he just breaks my heart when he is this sick! Last night when I was helping him get bathed, he was having a really hard time. He looked up at me with sad, teary eyes and said "Mama, I just don't know what to do?". It was all I could do to not cry myself! I wished so much that I had a fairy wand to wave over his head and make him all better again! I hate to see my kids sick! Not only do you feel helpless when they look at you like why am I hurting, but it puts so much stress on me to be there for the sick one and take care of the well ones and keep them from getting sick too!

Anyway, I'm so looking forward to being able to go a whole week without someone in my house having a fever, runny nose, or cough!


  1. Amen sister! Just took V back for her 2nd round of antibiotics to get rid of the sinus infection that she can't seem to shake. Ugh!

  2. You sure have had illness circling your family this year. I'm praying for your good health.
