Today I took Alyssa and Julia to the doctor. As I suspected, Julia also has strep throat and Alyssa has an ear infection. Julia woke up telling me that her "throw-up" hurt; it cracks me up how she can hear us all say throat over and over and continue to call it her "throw-up." Either term, she was right. I don't know what to do with Alyssa's ear; it has been infected the majority of her 11 years on earth. She has gotten tubes, they've taken out the tubes, they've paper patched it and skin grafted it. It remains infected no matter what, poor kid. It's really helped to not do swim-team this year, which just means that it's at an infection level that she lives with instead of causing her extreme pain. We've been to two ENTs, it's just frustrating that nothing has cured it!
JD did the afternoon soccer run and Aldi shopping for me. I have 1,000 things to do for Gabriel's party on Saturday. It's hard to believe that he heads to Colorado a week from tomorrow.
I'm glad I'm getting all this sickness nonsense out of the way now, so we can all be healthy all winter :)
