Beat the Bug!

This week has been super tough. Jack started getting sick Sunday, by Tuesday evening Trevor was feeling it and on Wednesday the twins and I got sick.

Trevor tested positive for influenza, and who the heck knows what the rest of us have had. Trev was basically quarantined in the bedroom until 24 hours after his fever broke (without meds) because there was no way I wanted to expose the kids or I.

Dealing with 3 sick kids, while sick and while your hubby is stuck in the room as miserable as you've ever seen him...just sucks.

We are still dealing with coughs and yucky noses 11 days later and our valley here is being infested with sickness. I am afraid to leave my house. Croup, RSV, the flu and on and on. 11 kids in Jack's preschool class were out last week and the hospital is full of little ones and younger adults alike with this stuff.

In other areas of the country things are getting better in terms of flu and such, but it looks like Oregon is still rising.

I've been impatient and cranky all week, and so have my kids. We need fresh air (it's been freezing cold and raining) and a break from this stuff!

On another note....I have my MRI on Friday for my ankle/foot thing to see what is going on AND the twins turn TWO on Sunday and I leave for Haiti a week from Friday.


We need to get healthy. We need to beat the bug!

Would love your prayers.


  1. Oh, man! I feel you! When I was pregnant with Wyatt we got the flu, and passed it around, Logan and myself getting it twice, and it was AWFUL! Sounds like you have a full plate without the flu, so you must be drowning! Try to keep your head up. I will pray for healing and enough time to complete all you need to for your trip!!!

  2. Gahhh I'm so sorry! Just miserable. I am praying for you and your boys!! I'm the same...we aren't going to church or mom's group because it's not even worth getting the crud going around.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
