And speaking of Caleb......
So sick, in fact, that his eyes were glued shut with eye boogers after he slept, and, when he was awake, they were constantly oozing yellow, snotty-looking puss.....
I knew he had a fever. Unfortunately, I assumed the fever was due to the shots he had been given the week before at his 0ne-year well-baby, and I didn't connect the fever to the cold. After he had looked like this for 2+ days, it finally occurred to me to call the doctor and check to make sure the fever was related to the vaccines.
We ended up at urgent care that night.... double-ear infection + infected eyes!
Oral antibiotics and eyedrops were the doc's orders- poor baby! And he wasn't the only one.....
Yep, it's spreading through the whole gang, leaving no child left untouched. We have everything from sore throats to boogery eyes and coughs to ear aches! Yay?
On a good note, Sophie's girls' JV lacrosse team finished their season this week with an undefeated record, even winning their championship game on Saturday! Go Titans!!
And we were honored to attend an award ceremony where Sophie received a certificate for making Principal's Honor Roll this year (3.8 GPA or higher)!!
Unfortunately, we got some bad news about Allie. She was diagnosed with PCOS. This, in addition to her endometriosis and migraines, was NOT welcome news. I do plan to do a post about the whole situation soon, but since it's graduation week, I just want to get through the next few days.... then I can re-focus on our next steps for Allie. I will blog about it all.....just not now.
This past week, I also said goodbye to something I've had for a very long time. Something I really thought I was ready to give up, but, I'm not gonna lie, I tear up when I think about it being gone.
Yep, my old Suburban is gone, replaced by this.....
My new Chevy Traverse! The first brand-new car we've bought since we purchased the suburban over 8 years ago! It literally had 30 miles on it when we drove it off the lot!
But it gets almost twice as many miles to the gallon, and with 3 driving teenagers and a passenger van, it just makes more sense for me to run around with the boys in!
Ok, so now we're caught up ;-) But it looks like it's gonna be another one of those weeks again as we gear up for graduation..... Allie is in her final week of high school, with graduation this coming Sunday! And I have so much to do in preparation for the arrival of her grandparents and the grad party that we are hosting this Saturday at our house!
Guess I better go to bed so I can get some rest!
Let the countdown begin......
