The SICK Ward….

That’s what you could call our house last week. We were all sick. Holly started it all with a cold/cough/slight fever. The Allison started coughing and had a runny nose. Then Steve started with a sore throat, stuffy nose and cough, then Allison got worse and started with a fever that would NOT go away. That’s when I called the doctor and asked to bring her in. I was thinking maybe she had an ear infection but I also wanted to make sure her lungs were clear. I was wrong about both. Instead the poor little thing has the Flu and RSV! And of course both of them are virus’s so nothing can really help but rest/fluids and lots of cleaning of the nose (she REALLY doesn’t like that). Her fever got to it’s highest of 104 but then started going down. She actually recovered much quicker than the doctor expected, she’s a trooper! Meanwhile, Steve was home for a few days so that helped, even though he was sick. At least I didn’t have to take Holly with me to the doctors. And wouldn’t you know, once the girls and Steve started feeling better, I started getting sick. At least I was well enough to take care of them first. But now, we are all doing better and on our way to being a Healthy family again. What a week!
Today I actually got a chance to sit down and scrapbook. Not sure when the last time was that I did any, probably before the holidays. Last week before Allison got sick, I worked on our Christmas book, and finished it in 2 days. Since then I’ve been wanted to do more, so today Steve brought my craft table back up stairs and the Scrapping began! I got 10 pages done today, I feel very accomplished!

Here’s what I did….
