We've Been Better...

Mike & I both came down with a terrible case of the stomach flu over the weekend. After losing 10 lbs each, we spent the weekend hooked up to IV's, getting the fluids and medicine that we needed.

Mike's white count was super high and his blood pressure was very low, so he also received IV antibiotics (Cipro), and was on oxygen and a heart rate monitor for a long time. He gave me a little scare!

Little Jasper has spent 3 days with 3 different families while we got the medical attention we needed and recuperated.

Jasper's bottom molars are almost through, so he is not the happiest guy around. Thank you Ashby's, Gornichec's & Gabaldon's. We owe you big time.

Not being able to take care of Jasper is one of the worst things ever. I am so grateful to our friends for all of their help.

sadness! i'm so glad you were taken care of. IV's are awesome when fluids and cipro are needed. i think that's what i had when i went in for my kidney infection. hope you're all on the mend.

Oh, I'm sorry! I hope you guys are feeling better. I remember Scott and I got really sick when I was first preg. with Olivia. I have no idea where Ethan was! I can't remember if I call my mom or he wandered aimlessly around! scary. I just remember us crawling through the house when we needed to get somewhere. Luckily we didn't need medical attention.

Geez Guys, that's awful...... it's not supposed to work that way. One of you gets sick then the other!!! You poor things. I hope all is well now and you are back with that adorable son of yours. I'm sure he missed you.

Oh my, Ang! I'm so sorry! I have had to get an IV 5 times before when I've gotten the flu. That's not fun but you feel SO much better to finally be rehydrated. Glad to hear you're on the mend!
