 It has been a week to remember around here (though I would love to forget it).  

Colton started off the week with a dry cough and very larthargic and just not feeling well.  We headed to the doctor on monday afternoon and sure enough he has walking pneumonia.  Poor little fella!  He was pitiful.  She put him on a z-pack and said he could go to school as long as he didn't have a fever.  I kept him home on Tuesday but by that afternoon the medicine was working so off he went to school on Wednesday!

Thursday morning Sydney got sick shortly after hanging her morning bottle.  She's never don't that before and it was preceded by a cough.  I think she gagged from the cough.  She got sick again in her bed during her morning nap.  I got her cleaned up and ready to go get Colton at school.  We got almost there before she threw up in the car!  Ugh, my least favorite thing in the world.  I was pretty sure she was gagging on her cough and when we got home she had a fever of 102.  I took her to the doctor on Friday morning and she has an ear infection.  My poor baby!  She has slept most of the weekend and just tonight started feeling a little back to herself.  

Friday night Matt and I started to get ready for bed around 10:30 when Matt heard Ryan screaming from upstairs.  I said "oh, that's never good".  Ryan got sick in his bed then at the top of the stairs.  Blah!!!  Matt began to tackle the landing and I got Ryan in the shower and stripped his bed.  He got sick some more so we made a palet for him on our floor to sleep!  Matt mentioned that he felt a little off so we knew what was coming.  About an hour later he was in the bathroom and sick as a dog.  

It was a pretty eventful night and no one got any sleep except Colton and Sydney.  I think I saw every single hour on the clock.  Ryan bounced back quickly and was feeling better by morning wanting to eat breakfast and play.  Matt on the other hand was feeling crummy and lethargic all day.  

I am praying all this sickness away and ready for us all to get better.  I busted out the lysol and clorax and cleaned bathrooms, laundry and floors.  Stomach bug - BE GONE, you are no longer welcome here!
