Strep Throat, Ear Aches and Stomach Bugs, OH MY!

Honestly, we are a healthy family 99% of the time but this has not been our winter at all. The current tally is as follows:
Ashley and Sophie: Strep throat for Christmas
Elijah: Strep throat from classmate at school just after returning from Christmas break.
Sophie: Double ear infection two weeks ago
Sophie: Stomach virus this past Friday night.
Elijah: Not feeling well Saturday evening, fever by Sunday, trip to minute clinic....diagnosis.....STREP THROAT AGAIN!
Thank goodness for the free antibiotic program at Publix! It has been a huge blessing in all of this! We have only paid for one prescription! If you are looking for a stock tip I would recommend investing in Oral-B. With all of our strep I have thrown away and purchsed enough new toothbrushes to make their next quarter profits increase by a good margin. We are not sure how Dann and Macklin have managed to stay disease free. ( I believe Macklin moves too fast for anything to stick to her ;} ) If you think about it, please pray that we can shake all of this pretty soon and for Dann and Macklin to continue to stay well! Thanks and good night!

Oh poor babies. I pray that Elijah and Sophie are feeling better soon. Thanks for reminding me about the free antibiotics at Publix, although I really hope I don't have to take advantage of it anytime soon.

Oh no! I'm sorry ya'll aren't feeling well again. Mary was sick Friday night with the stomach bug as well. It's no fun! Let me know if I can bring you anything or help out in any way.

Ashley: Sorry that the bugs are going around again, praying that it will soon pass & that Dann & Macklin stay well, I wish that we were closer, so we could help you out if you need it... Praying for y'all, Love, Daddy & Mama (Papa & Grannie)

YUCK!!! Seems like there's been a lot of sickness going around everywhere! Schools were closed here Monday because of sickness and yesterday because of the primary (lots of schools are the polling places), so I'm hoping all those germs are gone and that my girls don't get anything! Hope Elijah is feeling better and that the rest of you don't get anything else!
