Way Back When-esday: Round 2

Dakota with Boba Fett (Star Wars) and Woody (taken earlier this month)

Well, it's Way Back When-esday...and it feels like it was "way back when" when Dakota was sick with the flu...and can you guess who is sick now???

It's Miss Lu Bell.

She started running a fever yesterday afternoon. It's been in the 100's and higher since yesterday. Today, it hasn't gone over 100.9, but she is also on Motrin as I speak...You can see it in her eyes. And she keeps complaining that her eyes hurt (from the fever) and her nose hurts (don't know why about her nose), and her mouth hurts (possibility of strep?!). I don't know...but the Dr wants to see her. The nurse who called me back said it was too far passed the "breeding period" for her to have the flu...but Lu DOES have all the same symptoms that Dakota had when he was diagnosed with the flu on the 8th. So, we are off to yet another Doctor visit...oh me, oh my! This is the 2nd visit in the last 2 weeks and we are still 14 days away from the start of health insurance coverage on the kids. The state says that we make too much to still qualify for now, the kids are covered under CHIPs...which is still through the state, but there is a waiting period. And of all times for my kids to be sick, it's during the waiting period. I bet on December 1st, they will both be as healthy as a horse.
The pictures below were taken yesterday before nap time and before the onset of fever....This was my "Take 2" at pictures of Lily.

Lu Bell...on the trampoline...given the static-y hair

And again...My Pretty Lily Lu

Posing by the tree...looking at this picture can see the sickness in her eyes :(

We were listening to the wind chime

Doing a breathing treatment...when the kids get sick, I let them do the "fishy" with water in it instead of seems to help open them up and calms the cough.

Holy cow, that picture with Dakota, Boba and Woody is WAYYYY too funny! His expression is priceless. ANd poor poor Lily!

Hope she is feeling better soon. We've not tried treatments as "fishy"...great idea!
