doctors doctors everywhere

Well, it's been a busy week - yes sir-ee...

Harlan developed very gooey eyes (for want of a better description) last Monday and we paid the pead a visit just to be on the safe side... the following day he developed a cough and a sneeze... oh no...

Two doctors visits, antibiotics, eye-drops, nose-drops and regular nebulizing later, we're a week down the road and all four of us are sick...

We're all feeling pretty sorry for our little selves right now...

Our doctor's visit today confirmed that Harlan is ok, as long as we keep him from getting any worse. Poor Malakai has a runny nose and his lack of eating (or even drinking his beloved juice) tells me he's feeling as bad as mommy... Darryl is able to take all sorts of medicine, so he's pretty much got the best deal out of all of us... I'm actually jealous every time he drinks a corenza-c! LOL!

And all this is the middle of a very hot heat wave... I was really blindsided by this flu bug, at this time of year.

Hopefully the coming week will bring with it better health - and higher spirits!

How did I miss the birth of sweet Harlan? Must have been when Jax was so sick in the ICU. He's beautiful, and I bet Malakai is a great big brother!

Congratulations on the arrival of baby Harlan (better late than never!). So sorry to hear that you weren't feeling too good and I hope that you're all up and about again. I love the photos of Malakai and Harlan together - he looks like such a proud big brother. Lots of love Alison XX
