Let's see, where were we?
Stomach Flu for BubTar
Episode for KayTar
Hellish flight alone with KayTar. No one meets us at the airport. Have to pay a guy to help with baggage and catch a cab. Don't arrive until 12:30, no sleep until 2:30am.
Wedding. Beautiful, but sort of like pulling my hair out by the roots. KayTar melts down 345028405078211334858 times.
BubTar spikes a fever.
BubTar fever gets much higher. We fly home with a sick little guy. I get searched at the airport and almost don't get a seat on the plane.
BubTar continues to run a 103 fever that is resistant to Motrin and Tylenol both.
Take BubTar to the doctor, it's viral. Negative strep swab! I thought about asking the doctor (who wasn't OUR ped) if I could keep it and frame it, such a rare occassion it is, but I thought he might find that strange.
KayTar spikes a 102.5 fever at 6pm.
And that, my friends, sums up the first week of 2008. Only a week?
The problem with KayTar's fever (besides the obvious illness) is that she is scheduled to have her big district evaluation for services on Wednesday, and if she has what BubTar has, she will definitely still be feverish on Wednesday, as he is still home sick 5 days after the onset. But, what can you do? I called this morning and the nearest they can reschedule for is the 29th. She's checking to see if she can find something sooner, because once they evaluate, they need time for placement and request all her medical records. We don't want the eval to be too close to her actual transfer date (her birthday). We shall see.
This is where I'd be all "Week 2 has to be better, right?!" except blind optimism is easier when both the kids aren't feverish and miserable. But I hope, at least for your sakes, this streak is over soon, because there are only so many ways I can say 2008 sucks before I start sounding like a broken record. ;)
