Sick at the same time

My poor little boys. They all have cooties. The cootie of the week is a nasty one called Roseola. Wyatt had it beginning late Thursday evening, with a slight temp and that rolled into Friday, with a temp of 103.5. Took him to the on call Dr, who diagnosed him with an ear infection and gave us antibiotics. We had a busy weekend, no problems, other than a warm Wyatt who wanted to cuddle a bit (which we were happy to do). But come last night, Jaxon was getting crabby and both he and Luke were feeling warm. Today, they both have had fevers over 103, and now Wyatt has cute little dots all over his tiny body form the after rash that comes. Luckily, Wyatt is back to his normal, happy, little laughing self. Hopefully when the other 2 get up in the morning, we will be on the road to recovery. Our regular Dr said it is a virus all kids generally get before they are 2. Good to know, but definitely not fun to go through. But once again, I have to admit, I love the cuddling that these little guys want when they are under the weather. They are still so tiny, and fit right into my arms. I guess that is the silver lining to the nasty Roseola going around...

Oh boy, I hope they are feeling better soon. Those high fevers are scary.

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. We just went through Roseola last month. It was really tough ... they were SO clingy and feeling miserable. I'd have to agree though, the cuddling IS nice. Even when they are being cranks...!

Here's hoping everyone is feeling better very soon!!!

We just wrapped up Roseola last month, too. Strangely, only 2 of my 3 got it. But I got an adult version that was miserable! (as did my sitter, who wound up in the ER)
Enjoy the cuddles--wishing you patience for the crankies...
