Since the end of March, Maddie has had two ear infections, strep, and now scarlet fever*.  Ellie has also had two ear infections, some other viral thing, Owen had some sort of virus with a fever and red eyes. 

Honestly, I can't take it anymore.  At one point Maddie's fever went up to 105, I felt like I was running around the house with one of those thought bubbles that said " oh shit, do we go to the ER?" going around in my head.  I could hear of speak to anyone I was freaking out so much.  We did not go, we were able to get the fever down with Tylenol.  She had missed her last dose, because, ironically (I think this is actual irony, feel free to correct me) we were at the doctors office because she was sick.  Oh universe, you are so funny.   

*Scarlet fever is strep but with a rash... who knew?
