Our crazy life continues...

My oldest sister always says that the craziest things happen to our family! Either we get turned down by the Humane Society to adopt a cat because we have too many kids, or we have crazy illnesses, or have to visit the ER several times for accidents, or the fact that we have Poison Control on speed dial and have used it often! But for some reason we like to keep life interesting!

Here is how our week went:
  • Tuesday through Thursday spent time at the beach! (this is the good part and will post pictures soon)
  • Thursday morning Mary Elizabeth is not feeling well. I cut my thumb open on a rusty nail while digging in the sand (no tetanus shot since high school)!
  • Thursday afternoon driving home Mary Elizabeth starts running a fever and vomiting. We get the fever under control.
  • Thursday night (11pm) Mary Elizabeth's temperature goes from 99 to 105.2! We put everyone in the car and rush to Emergency room.
  • Argue with the ER doctor about what is wrong with her and the test prove we were right and he was wrong (had to say that!!) She has a severe Urinary Tract Infection. But they can not get her fever to break below 102, so they send us home with antibiotics.
  • Get home at 4:30am and go to bed!!
  • Mary Elizabeth continues to run a fever and vomiting all day.
  • Talked to my doctor and said I need to get a tetanus shot within 24 hours of being cut! OK, so I have 30 minutes to load everyone up and go to the local clinic! (Jason had to go to a meeting!)
  • Sitting in the clinic with Mary Elizabeth vomiting in a Wal-Mart bag in the corner, Harrison crying because he fell off the table where he was doing flips, Harper has pink and green marker all over her face and hands from coloring, and me the pregnant lady with a LITTLE cut on her finger! The Doctor just did not even know who to treat!!! I know they thought I was the worst mother in the world bringing everyone in the clinic with me and one even just got out of the hospital, but hey sometimes you just have to do thing when you have no other choice!!!
  • Mary Elizabeth continues to run a fever and vomiting until last night (Saturday), and my arms is numb from the shoulder to my elbow!
  • But today, PRAISE THE LORD, we are all well and doing much better!!!
Hopefully this week will be better!!
I know it will because Wednesday we find out if TooDee is a boy or girl, YEAH!!
