healing up..

It's been a long two weeks for several of my kids. Some unknown virus has run through many- mimicking mono. Good thing we homeschool because most days I had at least 3 kids needing a 2 hour nap each afternoon. I say that it mimics mono, because the mono spot is negative on the two that we tested. Fortunately, the color is starting to return to some cheeks and a LITTLE bit of energy returned today. Thankfully, the sun made a surprise appearance and motivated the kids to get outside to play or at least sit in the bay window and soak it up..

Also, on Friday, Elli really hurt her shoulder. She was running the vaccuum with her left hand, pulled it back and heard a "pop". All of her symtpoms point to an injured rotator cuff, which we're keeping immobilized and under ice. Hopefully, it'll start feeling a lot better tomorrow so we won't need to take her in.

The only reason I write about this, is it continually amazes me what kids go through when they're sick. My kids that just came home in August talk about not being able to rest when they were sick or WORSE yet, not being allowed to go to the bathroom when they had diarrhea if it was at night...Each time they're sick, they eat up the loving that we give them...
