Strep, Bronchitis, and knocked out teeth...

It's been a rough week again medically for the Turner clan...Alyssa started out the week with a mouth injury and an earache. We took her to the doctor and she also had a nice case of strep throat...On the way to the doctor, I noticed Reagan had a funky rash all over his face, so I begged another appointment and sure enough, he has strep too.

The same day, both Clay and I were prescribed z-pacs for nasty coughs and sore throats - poor Clay has a bad case of bronchitis, I was heading that way.

On Thursday night, Alyssa re-bumped her little mouth and broke one of her front teeth off :(
That one about broke my heart...poor little thing won't have another one grow in until she is at least 5 or 6.

So, today Clay took Emma to the pediatrician because she has a barking cough, and I went the other way the ER with Alyssa to check out her teeth (on the advice of the peds office). Turns out that Emma ALSO has strep throat. I GIVE UP! The co-pays we've paid this month for medical totally goes over the budget that we had for Christmas. Talk about depressing...

Now, we have to take Zach back to the doctor on Monday to see if HE has strep...then we will be a whole happy family on antibiotics. Isn't this time of year a blast?

Egads. When it rains...

Praying for you to survive the torrential downpour. Hang in there.

NO WAY!
Dang, I need to run some Emergen-C over to your house.
Or maybe just chocolate...the cure-all.
