Sad Bunch

Wow. What a week. It started out on a positive note. Monday we had great weather and got to play at the park. Then Tues.- Now happened. RSV happened. Not fun. Lots of fevers, throwing up, running noses, Motrin, coughing, wheezing, and leaky eyes. We are doing breathing treatments on the boys over the weekend hoping to get it cleared up by Monday. We'll see. Still having lots of fevers and tears today. Darn. Shane isn't feeling too hot either. Being sick stinks. Everyone knows it, and having it hit your family reminds you of just how miserable it is. Hopefully we are all back on our feet next week.



They sent us home with a dinosaur mask to try to make it appear more fun to the boys. It didn't work. And when I say, "should we go get the dinosaur nose?" They know EXACTLY what I am talking about and instantly start crying. Sad.
Cade-Dinosaur. He was so sweet with this last night. He kept it on without me holding it there, no problem. But his eyes just slowly filled up with big ol' crocodile tears while he stared at me. Sweet and heart-breaking all at the same time.

Carson-Dinosaur. Man, he hates this thing and fights it like crazy. I don't blame him.

Hopefully we are back to looking more like this soon.

We just finished breathing treatments for Preston, even though he didn't have RSV. So we feel your pain, although you've got 2 to worry about! Being sick is the worst for everyone involved! Hope everyone gets better soon!
