Germs, Germs, Go Away

Friday, I got a call from Sprout's school saying his ear was hurting and very inflamed. Luckily, the Hubs was able to go get him because I was about 2 hours away at a meeting! We brought both of the kids to the doctor on Saturday, which seems to be occurring a little too frequently these days, if you ask me. I think maybe we deserve a gold-plated patient card. Sprout had a nasty ear infection and needed antibiotics again. He just finished a course after having his tonsils out. We decided to have Sprite looked at too while we were there and it is a good thing. Her lungs are still tight and weezy from the pneumonia so both kids are on a round of steroids and breathing treatments twice a day to get them over this illness that has taken over our lives! So, we headed over to the pharmacy to pick up our suitcase of prescriptions and started a new schedule/routine-what do you think?

Morning:
Breathing treatment
Bath or shower in Germ-X
Airborne shake for breakfast
Power wash the house in Lysol

Evening:
Steroids
Breathing treatment
Vitamins
Airborne shake for desert
Bath or shower in Germ-X
Clorox scrub
Germ dance

Any other suggestions?

Oh, you poor things. I didn't know your little one's have been sick. Sounds like Sprout is doing well from the surgery though, that's a positive.

I have no advice. Sorry. Hang in there, you're doing the best you can. Just try to keep yourself and the hubs from getting sick. That would double-ly suck. :-)
