(Kayley dressed as a medieval plague doctor)
To say we have had "the Plague" around here is a bit of an exaggeration, but I'm not kidding when I say that we have been sharing some type of malady through the family ever since Kayley's baptism excitement. It started 1 week ago when Daddy began hacking and coughing... We thought we were going to survive when on Sunday I started burning up with a fever. By today, my cough is obnoxious, my throat hurts from hacking and the muscle aches have the the WORST. So, yesterday...Maggie starts hacking and by the middle of the night last night she was crying with an ear ache. A quick trip to the doctor determined that she had an ear infection. During lunch today Kayley mentioned "Mom...my ear is clogging..." and within a couple of hours we had sneezures and lots of drippy nose.
So... the only person recovered (mostly) so far is Daddy, while the rest of us have been totally wiped out! Whew!! It's a good thing this isn't the middle ages and the only doctor you had was this creepy dude!!!
