You are going to laugh at this . . .

So the past couple of weeks have been very interesting in the Lewis household. First, our computer was sent back. You can thank FedEx for their terrible service, as usual. This is the third time that FedEx has sent back a package (before they were suppose to). There was a big cluster at the other end once the computer arrived back there, but supposedly it will be available for pick up today. I am going to swing by on the way home and hopefully we will finally have our computer! I am so far behind on saving and printing pictures of Robbie!

OK, next our adorable little guy just keeps getting sick. All of the other kids in his daycare are doing the same thing. I think they just keep passing it back and forth to one another. We just got him off antibiotics and within two days he is more sick than the last time. He has been coughing so hard that he chokes and then throws up and on top of that, he has busted outside of his diaper on numerous occassions - YUCK! He is just shy of a fever at 99.6, but he doctor said not to bring him in until he is at least 100 to 101. It is just pitiful, this poor little guy. I think his throat is hurting, but it is so hard to tell. So, we are still waking up a lot in the middle of the night. On a good night it is just once, but on a bad one I end up sitting up on the couch with him for hours! Thankfully Kevin is really helping out, otherwise I think I would be going crazy!

And last but not least we have two "broken" cars! The week before Christmas we traded in Kevin's truck, which needed about $3000 worth of work, for a 2008 4Runner. Thankfully, I got the new car and Kevin was going to take my 11 year old Nissan with excellent gas mileage back and forth to school - he drives about an hour each way. The first day that he drove my old car he wrecked it in a bad rain storm. It still isn't fixed . . . long story . . . So then he had to car pool with Robbie and me, which took him forever in the mornings to drop both of us off. The first day that he did that, a huge tree branch fell on our new car and left a softball sized dent in it! Can you believe the poor guy's luck? That car is also scheduled to be fixed, but we can't get it done until our other car is fixed . . . what a mess!

Anyway, it sound like all heck is breaking loose, but it really isn't. We are managing just fine. We hate to see Robbie hurting, but this is what little kids do and at least he is improving his immune system. We are getting around fine in one car and hopefully the other will be fixed soon. In the big picture, these things are just something for us to laugh at and call an adventure!

We're definitely chuckling at the car/computer problems (ugh...it's just a pain, isn't it??) but not about Robbie being sick. :( Poor little guy!! I absolutely hate watching my kids hurt and be sick, so I understand how hard it must be. It's especially frustrating when there is nothing you can really do to help them. And about the blow-out diapers: my kids were blow-out professionals when they weren't sick at all, so I know how it is cleaning up that lovely mess, too!! :) Hope you and Kevin are able to stay healthy through all of this and that little Robbie starts feeling better soon!!!

That's great that you and Kevin take turns taking care of Robbie. I'll pray he feels better soon and you guys get more sleep. I don't have kids but I think it would be hard seeing your child sick. I also hope the car thing gets situated sooner rather than later. Jon and I totally have been there!!Take care!! -Stef
