Not the zoo I was hoping for...

Jeremy was in St. Louis all day yesterday for a rugby game. The game was at Forest Park...and this park has the zoo, a science center...very kid and family friendly. Saturday, I decided that the girls and I would go to St. Louis with him and I would take them to the zoo. The weather would be perfect.

Like clockwork, Saturday night, MJ started to run a low grade fever. It started at 99.5...not a big deal at all. About an hour later, Zoa said her eye was itching.

This morning, we woke up to MJ having a 102.7 fever and Zoa's eye matted shut. Poor girls....

A trip to the hospital told us MJ had strep throat and Zoa had pink eye. Macie's fever at the hospital was 103.1. Medically, they said that is really high which scares me. I don't like it when she gets sick. She is s.i.c.k! She is so tiny so it does not take much to get her on the couch for good. I would not be surprised if she stayed home through Wednesday.


Zoa is, well, Zoa. Nothing can stop that crazy child of ours!


I hope your Sunday was better for you!

I completely understand where you are coming from with this. Kacie was running alow fever and then it jumped to 103.2 so I took her in to the doc on Friday to find out she has pneamonia and her right lung is completely full. We have been doing the breathing treatments and all but nothing is coming up so I dont know what that means for sure. I feel for you!!!!! I couldnt even imagine having 2 to deal with at the same time. Pink eye is always miserable cuz they think they feel fine so they are up moving around and all but at the same time scratching that eye. I hope this all passes very quickly for all of you!!!
