Another one??????

Last weekend Joe got sick, and was really feeling awful. What was really disappointing is we were childless for Saturday and we couldn't even enjoy our time together. Oh don't get me wrong it is always nice to have quiet moments, just the two of us, but it was really pitiful to watch him feel horrible!
Fast forward to Tuesday. I go to drop Joshua off at daycare and he cried when I try to leave him, well then I notice that he is warm. I decide to take his temperature before I leave and yep he had a fever. I took him to the doctor and he had double ear infections and a cold to top it off. So we got antibiotics and he was fever free by Wednesday and feeling really good by Thursday.
In the mean time Joe was getting worse and would NOT go to the doctor saying, "I am sure it is viral and there is nothing they can do!" So by Thursday he finally is sick enough to give in and am I ever so glad he did, because he has walking pneumonia. I can't say I am shocked since he has had this several times, but he got antibiotic, a steroid shot, and flonase. He still isn't feeling well but he is better than he was.
Then this morning when Joe Braden woke up and said he had a headache and his throat hurt a little. I took his temp and it was normal so I thought it was probably allergies, since mine were raging too, and gave him Zyrtec and Ibuprofen. Well we went to church, came home and ate, and then went to an out door trades day to browse and enjoy the beautiful weather. We met the inlaws there and had a great time, but when it was time to leave Joe Braden broke down. He usually doesn't do this so I found it odd. He proceeds to tell me that he is feeling bad and his head and throat really hurt. Sure enough he is now our newest sick guy! He has had fever of 103 most of the evening, so I am afraid we are in for a long night. I am guessing a call to the doctor is the first thing I will be doing tomorrow morning. Let's just pray I am not next on the list! I am way to busy this week to be sick!!
