a week in review:

lily's past week went something like this...

monday: terrible cold. had to cancel all plans. poor girl, she was just crummy.

tuesday: sent her to school, but still feeling pretty sick. however, when i picked her up in the afternoon, cold was all but gone! hallelujah! shortest cold ever!
(side note: tuesday night, ryan up all night with stomach virus)

wednesday: starts out great. we are on the up and up as a family.

wednesday night/thursday morning: lily up all night with the vomits.

thursday: clearly started out rough, but it looks as if the stomach virus for lily was very short lived. again, resilient immune system!

friday: stomach virus seems to have resolved, but she won't eat and is all in all miserable seeming.

saturday: exact repeat of friday and she is so clingy it is beginning to wear on us!

sunday: ryan convinces her to eat pretty much the first thing since wednesday, which was half a pancake for lily's favorite thing: "second breakfast with daddy." however, still miserable. we take her to church since she is fever free and meet her at the nursery door with eyes covered in goop. to the doctor we go and she is diagnosed with conjunctivitis and an ear infection.

way to go, lil... i think you had the majority of the most common childhood illnesses in the past week!

now, i am not one of those people who thinks i should be given antibiotics often. i firmly believe that they are over prescribed and we are doing ourselves harm. however, when the doctor handed me a prescription for a 10 day course of antibiotics, i almost could have kissed him.

and i am also not the type of person who likes to say "it was a bad day" or "it was a bad week" but all of lily's illnesses coupled with a few personal things, made this past week an all in all "rough week." i have never been happier to see the start of a new week and a monday morning! so here's to a fresh start this week!

Hang in there, Sicky Family. A Christmas miracle of health is just around the corner, I'm sure!
