ill, valentines, birthday, ill, better

Last thursday Joseph woke with a goopey eye, by that night it was all red and goopey, by Friday morning both eyes were goopey, red and looked bad, so off we went to the Dr. by 9:50am.
After the Dr. listened to Woody's heart (from Toy Story, Sarah brings him just about everywhere with us) the Dr. comfirmed "yep it's pink eye". Off to the pharmacy at 10:20am, it started the snow flurries by this time and home by 10:40am. Started Joseph on his 10 day medicine, ordered ice cream cake for Brent's birthday on sunday, and we played.

By 2:30 I had a call from Dairy Queen asking if I was coming soon to pick up the cake, roads were getting bad. Off we went to DQ for the cake and home again by 3:15. Brent arrived home shortly after to finish the days work from home. Started waiting for Megan to return home around 4:00, but with all the snow it was closer to 6:00 by the time she got home. We watched the bus get stuck coming up our street, it backed down the street and had to come up the other side of our house.

Saturday Valentines Day! The kids thought it was the Best Valentines Ever. With getting Valentines from mom and dad, getting to buy a new toy, getting McD's for lunch, and playing all day long, What could be better!?

Sunday, I woke around 2:00am and felt weird. My back hurt and my stomach felt weird. So for the next 2 hours I tossed and turned and couldn't really sleep. I went downstairs to try and sleep on the couch around 3:30am. Finally slept until around 6:00am, woke up and thought I am going to be sick, ran to the bathroom. Yuck. So for the rest of the day, Brent's birthday, I spent my hours on the couch (and in the bathroom throwing up), watching kids play. Brent had to speak in a different ward, so he went to their sacrament and came home and took care of me and the kiddos. He was such a great help to just let me lay there and get better. By 6:00pm I was feeling better and was able to eat some, we sang to Brent and had birthday cake, gave the kids baths and it was off to bed by 10:00.

Looking back, Brent was sick on his birthday the last 2 years, I guess it was my turn this year. Happy Birthday Brent!!! I hope it was a good one, WE LOVE YOU!

Now we are all better, except little runny noses here and there, but who doesn't have one of those or isn't sick this time of year!? (these are old pictures, sort of, taken in Jan., I need to take some new ones, the camera has been hibernating lately)
