I know, I know...

I'm awful at updating my blog. There is just so much to do and so little time... I'll try to give a few short updates real quick, while I feed Leala her bedtime feeding.

Well, she's sick... yes, Leala is sick again... I know, I know.. you all think we're always sick.. I've heard it all before... Anyway, I took her to the doctor yesterday. She had (and still has) a rash all over her body and kept getting a fever.. He tested for strep throat, but the results won't be back until tomorrow... He changed her antibiotic (she had 2 ear infections last week), and we were told to "wait and see" until we got the results from the test.

Yesterday evening was awful. We were fighting a fever every hour or two.. Mainly spiked up to 102.something.. but it did finally go up to 103.4... We got it down rather quickly and were told to hydrate her and stay home.. At about midnight it spiked all the way up to 104.2.. I freaked out.. We got it down in less than 30 minutes, but it scared me half to death..

Today she has been much better.. Her rash has turned from bright red to pink and she hasn't had a fever higher than 100 today. She is such a trooper.. She has thrown up several times (due to sinus drainage), but has kept her head up... I'm so proud of her and I hope she gets back to her normal self soon. This is sucking the life out of all of us... It has been a long time since I have been this emotionally drained.. She feels miserable (better today, but still..), and I just feel helpless..

Oh, and I guess I should mention.. I'm getting sick too... Good times, I know..

Anyway, on to something else.. My scrapbook stuff is going so well! I've made 18 sales and have bids on 10 more auctions. I also have a lady interested in buying 12-20 pages for her daughter's scrapbook.. I'll have to make some if those just for her, since I don't have that many already made for baby girls right now...

We were going to launch my site This coming Monday, but we might not be able to now.. The site is pretty much done, but with all these requests, I might not have enough pages to put up on the site come Monday! lol... I don't mind though! Obviously I'm getting to work less than normal with Leala being sick, but I have been able to slip in a page today.

One of my best friends is moving back to Texas! I'm so excited about that. She actually came back today, but with Leala being so sick, it might be a bit before we can hang out.

I guess that's about it for now. Leala is fighting her sleep, so I need to persuade her that she needs to go to sleep.. for everyone's sake... I hope you all are doing well. Have a great night!

I hope you don't catch it...feel better sweet Leala. poor baby. Take some vitamin C and gargle warm salt water if you are getting the sore throat too...it will help.
So gald that your pages are going so well...that is awesome!

Hey stranger! Hope Leala gets better soon!!! Definitely sounds like strep with the high fever and rash...hope they figure it out and everyones back to normal QUICKLY!

Hey, Strep is nothing to laugh about. My youngest showed signs of it on a Sunday. I called the doctor, and my Monday morning he was scarlet red (scarlet fever ring a bell?? Nothing but strep with the scarlet rash). I'm surprised that it takes so long to get the strep results back. Doesn't your doctor do the rapid strep-results back within 2-3 minutes? It's not 100% accurate, but it catches most cases.
All I can say is popcicles! Helps keep those kiddos hydrated, and they ususally will eat them with they will eat nothing else.
Glad to hear the scrapbooking is going so good. I know that you were a little disappointed in the beginning with the first auctions.

Awwww...poor Leala. I'm sorry to hear that she's been sick. Praying for a speedy and quick healing.

Hope you guys are feeling better soon and that it isn't something really bad like strep or H1N1.
