Updates:

Owen:

Developed his (and our families) first case of cold sores around his nose, mouth and chin. I guess its like a herpes virus that can develop from a cold. He had a cold and a friend of his had some "stuff" around his nose when they played last week but I thought nothing of it....until my boy broke out in "spots"/pimples around his nose. Bummer! After reading up on the stuff in my "Medical Advisor" (which kind of makes me a self proclaimed doctor...ha!) I figured out what it was and that it pretty much has to run its course....wow! Kind of like a marathon huh?!

It's @ Day 5 or 6 now and they are looking much better.

Kenzie:

After two nights of "night games" on some cooler nights she started to complain of her throat being sore and hurting...she is our girl who cries wolf a lot.....so, I blew it off like any normal mom would do and had them come with me to the Y yesterday to work out while I worked. We got home 3.5 hours later and she was REALLY milking the sore throat. By 7PM I said, "FINE! Lets go in" *bad mom moment* The test came back positive for Strep! First time a family member has had strep in this house!! Whoa...we are on a roll ....SPRING BREAK = SICK KIDS so far.

Coley:

Sore throat...tired....but OK. Looking forward to a day of watching TV and surfing the web while I am at work again.

Me:

Afraid of getting all of the above. ;-( But, other than that....I feel good and I think I have been eating good however my running feels harder and harder. Not sure what my problem is......need to google stuff when I get home from work later.

Hubby:

Running is going great. (Says his newer shoes are awesome!) Working, bringing in the money and stressed all at the same time. ;-) Sounds like a typical day in the life huh?!

It's also kind of windy and cloudy here....hopefully it will rain....its a perfect long movie kind of day.

Oh gosh, sure hope they feel better soon! Abreva works wonders for cold sores by the way!
