almost healthy

Who knew that after I wrote that last post that I would suffer through a hellish 36 hours of fever, chills, sweat and delusions. Thankfully once the fever broke I was almost back to my normal. I still have a cough but am good otherwise.

Because I was unexpectedly ill, Mike had to step up and be "Mom" for a day and he did a very good job... not perfectly like me but a close second :) Mike took Tuesday off work so he could take Anna to the Dentist and Rupert to the Vet.

Anna had an abscessed molar and the dentist opted to pull it instead of doing a root canal. She seems happy without the tooth, no more pain, but I feel bad she will be toothless for several years till the adult tooth comes up.

Rupert hasn't been himself all winter, doing strange things and not doing his regular comfort stuff. I thought maybe he hurt his paw but Mike said the vet said Rupert has arthritis in the back end. Both legs and hips are inflamed and stiff. But other then that he is wonderful for his almost 12 years, good teeth, eyes OK, good weight and fitness. Vet gave us some arthritis meds to give Rupert when he is having a bad day, in the last week he has had 2 doses and has shown big improvements (barking at strangers on the road again, lol)

I had a PAC meeting yesterday and I actually felt good about it, I was in control! Things are finally changing!

I can't wait for spring! I want to camp!

Still sick

When will we be healthy!?

Another round of flu/colds has made it through the house. The girls seem to be on the mend but I think I still have awhile to go and I'm not sure about Mike, he hides how he is feeling too well.

Anna has had a fever off and on for over a week, it's hard to tell if it is a symptom of her illness or if it's her teeth bugging her. I've made an appointment for her with the dentist to see what we can do about her abscess... not she if it's just food caught deep or something worse.

I'm surprised how fast Ivy rebounds back from her illness, but sometimes I think she is acting. She looks bad, has a fever and is coughing up a storm but is bouncing off the walls all hyper... I think she takes after her Father...

Today is Valentines but I have a "who cares" attitude towards it this year. I have no plans, Mike asked if I wanted to do anything but I gave him a pass, it's just another day. We can make plans when we are all feeling better.

Look what happened!

Ivy has lost her first tooth!!

Mmm, maybe the flash is too bright....
You can see the new tooth in behind the hole, we worried the baby tooth wouldn't come out but she wiggled a bunch and then we used some floss and yanked it out, took about 2 weeks but it finally came out!
Ivy was very excited about a visit from the Tooth Fairy, we are happy it came out and after a week the new tooth has moved *almost* into the baby's old space. Already there is another wiggle tooth up top!
