Our sweet little Gracie had a fever for about 6 days, culminating with a 104.9 on Monday at the pediatrician's office and scaring the heck out of us. Tests (blood and urine via catheter--oh my!!) showed high white blood cells, and she ended up with a Rocephin/antibiotic shot two days in a row (in case of bacterial infection). Then a stomach virus surprised Mommy. By the end of the day, Daddy and Grandpa had it too. Grace seems better today--less lethargic and playing a bit, praise God! Chance has been hanging in there, despite a low-grade fever--sturdy tyke that he is. The rest of us are still healing . . . ick.
On a brighter note: we moved to our brand-new house on Valentine's Day weekend. Daddy put a big red bow beside the garage door to welcome his family. Thank the Lord for help from Aunt Carla and our new (and younger!) neighbors Matt and Mindy. Without them, we'd still be moving!
Before "the crud" hit, Grandpa, the twins, and Mommy went back to the Children's Museum in downtown Charleston, where the babies crawled around the toddler room.
Grandpa and Chance shared some lunch in a deli outside the Children's Museum.
What would we have done without Grandpa this week, who has been a huge help. He even babysat BOTH twins on Saturday while Mommy and Daddy cleaned the rental house!
On Sunday (pre-stomach virus), we went to Cypress Gardens (http://www.cypressgardens.info/), only about 20 minutes from our house:
