So it is Friday - the big girls spent the night in order to keep Katie safe from their colds. Which, by the way, are getting worse every minute. All plans for any fun stuff today are officially cancelled. A trip to the doctor, earlier rather than later I hope, will be our outing for the day. They need to be still and quiet today. Feisty in particular sounds really horrible - which I know from very first hand because she crawled into my bed at midnight, followed quickly by her sister, who was awakened by Feisty's crying in the middle of the night. Both are croaking pretty badly. We can't get them in to the doctor until 4:00 - they want to do RSV test on all 3 of the others - Kristen tells me they will not like this test at all!
The biggest problem this creates is that I need to go to Maizie's funeral at 1:00. The aunt who is taking care of Emma would normally be glad to take Katie, too, so that Kristen can be with the sick big girls. But we want to keep Emma from Katie's remaining germs.
Oh, my. Flexible is indeed the proper word for the year!!
(If any of this makes no sense to you whatsoever, like you came in on the middle of a soap opera episode, please page down and read the last post or two).
Thanks for your often and continual prayers!
