On the mend.

The part that sucks about having triplets?
Illnesses, hands down.
Because when 1 gets sick,
the other 2 are sure to follow.

Instead of just 1 go through,
it's 3.

And only God knows when each will take their turn.
It started w/ Gabi on Monday.
Ian on Tuesday.
Sofi, only 4 days LATER,
on a Friday when the other 2 were already 1/2 way done.

It made for a very long illness.
11 days of dealing w/ fevers.
ELEVEN DAYS.

That many sleepless nights.
We are fanatical about fevers.
You know why...Ian & the seizure.

No rest for Mommy.
Worse when I finally came down w/ what they had,
as they were finishing w/ it.

I broke down in tears.
There was a final straw.
I'm contemplating where to blog about it.
Either way, it broke me.

Todd was a wonderful father & hubby.
He stayed home to help.
While I wallowed in misery.
Just for a minute.

Then I picked up myself off the ground.
And started fighting the next battle.
It has been a long, long 2.5 weeks.
Hoping to be near the end of this ordeal in another few days.

Not even sure what normal is.
There is always a silver lining.
I lost 7 lbs.
That helps.

Not many pics were taken during the Great Plague.
Sorry.

Glad everyone is on the mend. It's tough when you have more than 1 child. I have 3 and it's the same here.....when 1 gets sick, the others are sure to follow. -_- It's even worse when WE get sick. BLAH!

Hope everyone stays healthy!!!!!

I'm glad this is coming to an end and you can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you ever need to escape one night, let me know!

It's bad when you have a singleton sick, I know it's even worse when you have more than one child to work through. When someone gets sick around here it's a minimum of 3 weeks. Hoe everyone is on the mend now!
