The Plague

Something has settled in our house and it’s time for it to go.  For the last 10 days someone in our house has been sick.  First Austin got the flu.  On the day of the big sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa’s no less so that was doubly painful for him.  1

Rob followed with two days home from work.  Ellie missed school both Thursday and Friday.  Thursday she might have broken some sort of sleep record.  She dozed on the couch in the morning from 8-12, went to her bed and slept from 1-7pm, woke up and went back to sleep at 8pm until the next morning!  We found out Saturday she had strep.

Sunday both Austin and Riley got fevers (again).

Monday no one had school and today Ellie is the only one who went to school.  Austin is fine and bouncing off the walls a bit but with the “no fever for 24 hours” rule he didn’t go to school.  Riley still has a fever but seems to be improving.

I have been living on Emergen-C and bathing in hand sanitizer.
