"I can not go to school today", said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps, a gash, a rash, and purple bumps."

Oh wait that is one of my favorite poems from Shel Silverstein.

But we are all sick.

Everyone except R8. And I don't know how that happened either.

R3 ran fever over the weekend and he and Hubs stayed home this past Friday.

Saturday I started feeling bad, AGAIN!

I now have this most annoying cough and it seems to be getting worse.

Hubs also started to run fever and didn't move out of the recliner for what seemed like an eternity.

*Note to self*
Douse the chair in Lysol not once but twice maybe even five times!
*End Note*

I called for reinforcements and my mother in law came to play nurse maid to all us.

She took R8 to school and R3 to the doctor and found out he has bronchitis. He now has three prescriptions.

She even made sure Hubs and I went to the doctor.

Which was a good thing since Hubs found out he has the flu. And he has two prescriptions. Me, the doctor just said I have a very nasty cough and gave me a prescription for some super highly powerful cough syrup. He also gave me Tamiflu since Hubs tested positive for the flu.

I truly think doctors should offer two for one since Hubs and I use the same doctor and we both saw him today.

We also gave our insurance card a work out along with Walgreen's having to fill our 486 requests for medicine.

Anyway, if I'm gone for a few days and there is a random post from R8 don't panic, he knows how much I love to blog so he might fill in for me if he sees I can't move off of the couch.

I can't believe that ya'll are so sick!!! You tell you Mother-In-Love that I love her!! She is so awesome and all of you are so blessed! I pray for a Mother-In-Love like that for my children! WOW! Tell R8 to go to my blog and go to my playlist and play a song called Cartoons by Chris Rice. If he already knows it, don't worry about it! It is one of my favorites and I think both of the boys would love it!
I love ya'll and hurry up and get the bugs out of that house and tell Mother-In_love that I am praying for the bugs to stay away from her!
Love you,
