The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

THE GOOD

Maddox slept from 11:00 pm last night to 5:30 am this morning.  He also often lets me put him down in the crib to go to sleep, as long as he's on his tummy and the noisemaker is on.  Can I get a "Hallelujah" anyone?

THE BAD
Sickness abounds at the Ervin home today.  I noticed at church that Connor had a fever, so we brought him home.  Thank goodness, too.  He's got croup.  We didn't know what it was until around midnight when he woke up crying and barking like a seal.  He also had very labored breathing, so Ben took him into the ER.  I told him to be sure and use the magic words, "He can't breathe," to get quick service.  They were home by 3:00 am.  Kelsey also has a fever and a cough, but I expect hers won't get much worse than it already is.  We are hoping and praying to keep Maddox from getting sick.

THE UGLY
Kelsey came home from Lido's on Friday with some nasty-looking bubba teeth!  I'd get her to pose for a picture with them in, but since she's sick... a picture from the "archives" will have to do.  This one is Olivia wearing Uncle Mike's bubba teeth.

Well, that's great, awful and hideous!
I'll keep Maddox in my prayers, too. If Mama stays healthy, good chance that Baby will too - so be sure to take care of yourself :)
*LOVE the pic of Olivia.

Just getting back to reading some blogs. Sad and happy to read your "naked" post. Sad that it is currently part of your life, happy that you have identified it and can get help. Praying for you.

The nurse at the health clinic said that we are having an epidemic of whooping cough, and everyone is encouraged to get the Tdap vaccination (the "p" is for the whooping cough - pertussin??pertosis??.
