Finally recovering!

This was one long winded illness.  It looks like we are *all* finally on the up and up. I am ready to move on to better things :-)

It took using my new machine to get Aubrey over his illness.  Poor guy.  I knew he must have been dealing with a secondary infection, I just wasn't sure which one (though I suspected it would go to his lungs).  When he woke up the next morning it became apparent that it was going to his lungs.  The first thought that came to me was, 'bronchitis'.  So that is what I ran my machine for, and by the end of his session he was finally fever free!!  Phew!  I ran it a couple more times that day to be sure he didn't relapse.  I finally have my Aubrey back.

Even though the kids have been sick, I tried to get them outside if they were able.  In Aubrey's case, he just sat in the stroller the whole time.

Aubrey loves spending time with the cats.  He doesn't look sick here, but he certainly was.

 What does one do when they do not have a sidewalk to color on?  Color on your house's foundation, of course!

Merida insists on wearing a hat when I do.  It was quite warm out, but she chose this hat to wear.  I wear my hat for bug protection (I **hate** when bugs fly in my hair and face!!).

 Jed wanted in on the photo action.  He was drawing Minecraft stuff on his side of the wall.

Being goofy.

Jonah wanted to help color in my sign.

The baby had other ideas of people helping HER color in my sign.  Here she is trying to stop Jonah from coloring in this letter.

Meanwhile, I noticed that Aubrey was still hanging out in the stroller, and went to check up on him.  Knocked out!  He took another 4 naps that day.

Merida walked away from the wall giving Jed an opportunity to color in my sign.

Sleds are still useful in the spring.  I suppose that is good, since we only get to use them for about 3 days during the winter.

Merida still in her pj's.  Outside is fun if you are dressed or not :-)

The boys, particularily Jonah, are enamored with our new (to us) van.  For one thing, it has a *working* radio!  As soon as we get in the van, that is their first request....Put the music on!!  Today we opened up the back door of the van to let the music pour out for some hooping.

Merida is able to get the hoop going around her a few times!

Yours truly.  I was attempting to hoop as well.  It was sunny out, and I was hoping we were soaking in some vitamin D.

The finished sign.

And Then....

So my last post had us outside enjoying a fine spring day.  Though we have been outside most days since then, we've also been dealing with some sort of flu type illness. And not the stomach kind. I was worried when it got to certain children as they do not do as well as some of my others with flu type illnesses.  One night we thought we were gong to have to take Moira to the ER (only because it was the weekend and urgent care was closed).  We didn't, as I found a homeopathic remedy that did the trick, and she was over the flu by the next day (though it took a few more days for her to regain her strength).

So a couple of days ago the last two kids came down with this munge (Bella and Flannery).  The day after Jonah started up with a fever.  Hmmm, didn't he go through this already?  I must have been 'off' in keeping track of who had it.  But then, a couple of days later (today) Aubrey comes up to me saying his eyes hurt. he had been eating an orange, so I thought he had gotten some juice in them.  But minutes later I see him lying on the couch...looking sick!  He just came up to me saying his head really hurts, and is now running a fever.  Seriously?  I KNOW he had this already.  Though he had more of a fever and cough, but not much of a headache.  The older kids have gotten a headache and fever first, then a cough added on.  Not sure if this is the same bug going around for the second time or something different, but I know one thing for sure....I'm DONE with the sickies!!!

I think we started this two weeks ago?!  I did run a program on my new 'health' machine for Flannery for her headache and within a couple of minutes her headache was gone.  This allowed her to stop taking meds, so her body could let the fever do it's job.  I was reading up on muscle testing for remedy choices (in homeopathy).  I tried it out on Flannery.  In the almost 8 years of using homeopathy I have only gotten the right remedy for Flannery *once*!!!  She is so hard to get the correct one, something having to do with her 'taking on other people's symptoms' as another homeopath told me.  Either way, she is doing better, though not back to health yet.  But she feels a whole lot better.

I think I will try it for Aubrey.  On his first go around, there really was no need for a remedy as he was handling the illness just fine.  Even though he just started, he is really upset about feeling so horrible.  Poor guy.

I was just catching up on my kitchen too :-(  I had been doing great with keeping the kitchen clean every day, all day long.  But multiple kids sick....well, that started to slide, and slide, and...well mess exploded.  If I didn't have to do shopping, a chiropractor appointment, and help two girls get ready for a Ball, I am sure it would have gotten all cleaned up today.

Try, try again.  Please pray for healing.  When the littles get sick, that means they get little sleep, and that means mama  little sleep.
