Our Diet This Week--Popsicles

It all began last Thursday with Danny. He had a friend who was going to sleep over and they were playing and then it came time for dinner. Danny sat down at the table and could not even hold his head up and was all shades of grey. I felt him and he was on fire. To be official, I got a thermometer and he was 102.8. Danny is rarely sick. His friend went home and Dan went to bed. Danny was miserable the rest of the weekend but was better for school. Come Saturday, Edward began with complaints of a headache and he also had a fever. His resulted in also a stomach bug.(no details here) With the boys sick, Jenise had a birthday party Saturday evening and I took the girls girly shopping--I was so excited to post these. But Sunday came and Mommy got it. I gotta say, I know we are lucky that it was just a cold and that it is nothing serious and that we will get over it. I know there are poeple out there with much worse things. But this just knocked me out. I ended up with what Edward got and I was on my back for close to 3 days with the getting up where absolutely needed. Daddy got it Monday with the same result. JiaLi did get the fever for 1/2 a morning and fought through it. now though she just has those flushed cheeks and yucky cold. Joseph came down with it Monday night also. Jenise stayed healthy(I think because she had experienced it back in Dec.) Jenise is eating ice cream--she was the only one tolerating ice cream and we wanted to conserve our popsicles;) Happy and thankful to say we are now functioning. I can honestly say Thank God for popsicles!
