New pictures...

I have a new website where I will post pictures. I uploaded our pictures from Christmas in Disneyland and I will get more on soon. Check it out:


Both girls are at school today. Kaidan had a temp of 101.6 at 1:00 this morning, but it came down on it's own. Hopefully she can make it until tomorrow since that is her chemo appointment.
Porter is pretty sick, but other than that we are starting to do better.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!!

Still sick...

Hello everyone. We are all still fighting being sick at our house. We had a good weekend of mostly being lazy, but it's still hanging around.

Preslee is doing much, much better, but I kept her home one more day. I'm hoping by tomorrow her cough will be even better. Then I will feel OK about sending her back to school.

Miss Kaidan ended up in our bed around 3 o'clock this morning with a temperature of 100.6. .Right now she is hanging out around 99.9, so she is home and I am watching her. I'm assuming we will have to take her to clinic because she is coughing and not sounding too good. We'll see what her fever does though. Maybe we'll get lucky.

Cash is coughing now too, but he seems to be doing OK. I believe he was the one who started this round of illness, so hopefully he doesn't get sick again.

Porter...what can I say? We finally cleared his eyes up and now he has a fever and a cough. He didn't sleep well last night at all and I am taking him in to the doctor this afternoon. He hasn't felt well the past couple of days. He's been REALLY clingy and sleeping a lot. Hopefully we can get him on an antibiotic and get him feeling better.

I'm still not feeling well, but it's mostly at night and in the mornings. I seem to feel better as the day progresses, so I think I'm getting better. I haven't talked to Nate today, but I think he's doing OK. He has been feeling congested and he was worried that he was catching it, but hopefully he'll make it through.

It seems like we are always sick at this house!! We have even had people ask us if maybe there is something in our house that could be making us sick. I think that it seems worse because of Kaidan having cancer and the fact that we have 4 little kids. If Kaidan didn't have to go to the hospital every time she had a fever, things wouldn't be such a big deal. I suppose I could quarantine our whole family for the next 8 months, but I'd rather let Kaidan go to school and lead a "normal" life. I am hoping that once the weather warms up and we can get outside more the illnesses will become fewer and farther between. I plan on washing all of our sheets today and sanitizing all the things we touch often. We do "clorox" all of our lightswitches, door handles, remote controls, keyboards, etc. twice a week, but somehow these germs keep getting to us!! Oh well...this too shall pass!

Thanks for keeping up with us. Hopefully I can give an update of COMPLETE health in a couple of days!
