Thus far~

This is not exactly what you want to see lurching above your children's heads in the family room. Thank goodness we are renting! I guess our master shower is in need of some TLC. It's not very big, so I hope this fix won't be too bad!

This is basically what my day looks like. Minus Graden in the chair. He has bounced back the quickest of the 3. I guess that when they say the younger, the better? They ain't kiddin'! We have literally tried to force Graden down since Friday. (the day AFTER surgery) He is sometimes grumpy, but for the most part, healing really quick. He will eat ANYTHING we let him. And some things he sneaks. Like Ritz crackers. You heard me. Down the hatch they went. No problemo.

The girls have been more trying. They are in a lot of pain, won't agree to take their meds and won't get off the couch. This has been cause for some tears. Almost on both sides. They are sore and shaky from not eating. I have tried to constantly have a liquid in front of them. This is the first day I have really refilled sippy cups multiple times. :) I made ramen noodles (very cooled) and MADE them come eat them at the table. They were not happy about it, but I think that is why their heads hurt. It's no vacation being stuck on the couch for days on end. I was also able to get all 3 to bathe at some point on Saturday. I thought a clean body and a fresh pair of undies would help. The jury is still out!

Natalie has had her thumb in her mouth NON STOP since Thursday. At one point Jason put a sock on her hand because her thumb was totally white. It was gross. I was pretty sure she was going to suck her thumb nail off. Ewwwzers!

On a bright note, they got a get well card in the mail from G'ma & G'pa Blue in Oregon. It wished them a speedy recovery and gave each of them $4 to go to the $1 store when they get better! They all were so happy. They counted them dollar bills several times in ensure they each received the same amount. Taylor informed me of a snow globe she saw there when we were getting the spray bottles. Oh boy, I can't wait......

Thank You G'ma & G'pa Blue! We love you so much!

The toothless wonder. She wanted to show you. Again.

Poor Bruiser. I mean Burke. I'm sure he is wondering what in the heck is wrong with his sisters. He just mosy's over to them. They give him drinks from the squirt bottles. He likes that!

Did you know that I LOVE to color. I do. The kids got new crayons and coloring books for the big day. In my mind I was almost drooling. Sharp crayons in this house are a luxury. I colored a picture for each of the girls. They are impressed with my skills.

Poor girls and Graden! It makes me feel sad to think of them all starving to death! I'm glad Graden is getting better quickly. We really miss you guys. Church is just not the same without you. Oh and I'm loving your owl background! Yay! Give all the kids loves from us!

Love the thumb sucking pics! Hopefully each day gets better and better!
Good luck with the master bath!

Leah said...

Oh poor kiddos. That makes me feel so bad. I hope they recover really really fast! You are such a good Mommy. I bet this has not been easy on your either. I couldn't even imagine. Good luck with the rest of the week!

I also LOVE coloring! I think it's very therapeutic ;)

You are such a trooper! I actually think it was smart to have all 3 kids done at the same time. That way they are all in the same boat. I hope all are doing great at that you are hanging in there! I love your blog and the quotes. I might have to copy some. :) You inspire me to catch up on my blog entries.

Poor little kids!! I hope they all have a speedy recovery! Clean undies always helps speed the recovery up ;)
Sorry about the ceiling! That sucks! Hopefully that will get fixed and have a speedy recovery as well :)

P.S. I love coloring too! I got mad skills.
