One More Time...


I don't know how they do it, but my normally healthy children get the strangest little illnesses right before special family events. How do they know? Is it just Murphy's law or is this some strange cross we have to bear?

Last Christmas Zaya came down with what turned out to be Strep throat and caused him to miss two family celebrations and the whole family to miss a trip to Texas. Then Zaya had a little two hour mystery illness the day of his cousin Jaida's birthday party. (Mim and Dad went by themselves.) Two weeks ago Mim had a little day-and-a-half fever that kept us from going to a wedding and visiting Art's youngest sister.

And then this weekend we should have known something was going to happen, because it was Addy's birthday party and another trip to visit Art's sister. Of course, Zaya came down with another weird case of Strep throat. They're so weird because he experiences no throat pain. He just had a fever, but acted otherwise normal...until this morning, when he started throwing up. =P Needless to say, we did not travel, and only Mim and I got to go to the birthday party. Poor little Zay.

Anyway, we've been to the doctor already and started the antibiotics so hopefully he's feeling better soon. He's really the sweetest little sick guy. He said, "thank you" when I held his bucket for him and said, "I'd like a drink of water please" and "That water tastes great!"

Tell him hi from grandma and that I'll be home before long to see him. (I've only a couple of minutes on this library computer.)

Poor Zaya. What a dear. I always say thank you when Hubby holds my hair back for me while I'm throwing up. Well, when I had long hair. It's no fun being sick, no matter how old or young you are.

Yep, Murphey's Law. Not fun, but par for the course. Imagine my life, lol. It does stop when they get older.
