In case you read my post from yesterday, here were my stats by the end of the day:
Today I'm assuredly going to get far fewer steps. I took a taxi with my two youngest to a new doctor. It was a helpful visit. Three pharmacies later, we came home with three creams and two syrup medicines. Besides having Hand, Foot, Mouth virus (seems to be a fairly mild case), they both have badly infected mosquito bites. Hazel is obviously allergic to bites. Feeling thankful for access to good medical care and the medicines and antibiotics needed to help.
The funny thing is that both "feel" fine. No more fever, no pain. Besides a lot of itching, they are both their normal selves. So we will be staying home for the rest of the week, not with sick kiddos, really, but normal kiddos with lots of energy and some red bumps.
I took it as a good sign yesterday when we passed by Ruby's school and she started trying to get out of the stroller. I think she wanted to go in. We'll try again next week for a full week at school. She didn't even make it two full days this week due to a fever and rash.
