Has it really been nearly four weeks since we arrived on a tropical island for our vacation? Say it isn’t so! And since then, well, we have been having lots of fun. And by fun I mean, doctors visits, ibuprofen consuming, antibiotic taking, nose wiping, bedridden days and daily fever checks. Oh gosh, do we know how to have fun or what. What illness started in Hawaii with Dada quickly spread to the boys which made for a painful flight home which lead to a weekend of sick kiddos, followed by doctor appointments, an ear infection found and then recovery. Only then to have Mama fall victim to the virus, followed by another virus which somehow made it into our home even though we hadn’t gone anywhere! We visited urgent care and were worried about having pneumonia- but luckily we are just the carriers of multiple viruses. So… we are on the mend. No one has had a fever for two days (going on three!!!) and the tissue consumption has lightened. We are not one hundred percent but we are getting there. We made it out of the house this morning which is more than we can say for the past two weeks. We are looking forward to getting back into a routine (which we have not had since before Christmas) and seeing our friends again. Being quarantined is no fun!
And, here is a snippet of our vacation. It seems like a long time ago and the end of the trip was taken over by fevers and pink eye (oh yeah, did I forget to mention that one Dada and two boys had pink eye while in Hawaii… oh gosh, how could I forget that!). So, here is proof that the whole vacation wasn’t sickness bound and that we did have fun in the sun! Just not the ideal vacation we were hoping for, but we were sundrenched and waterlogged for quite a few days.
The day we flew home a certain little one turned 20 months old. I would have to say that month 19-20 was “let’s learn a new word everyday” month. Our favorite being “mo” which, of course, means “no.” Which is no longer in use, we flat out say “NO!” now, but it was awfully cute while it lasted.
