Stormy Weather

In the literal sense, it could be headed our way in a few hours.  Hail, wind, possible tornadoes.

In the figurative sense, we've been in the middle of it for days.  As of right now, I am the only one of the five of us that has not run a fever in the past 6 days.  Am I nervous?  Why yes, yes I am!

Here's the run-down:

Saturday/Sunday: Tyler
Tuesday-now: Alan
Wednesday morning - now: Dale
Wednesday evening - now: Daddy Buffalo

Thanks to Alan and his transplant issues, we made trips to the doctor on Tuesday and Wednesday.  He got a complete workup Tuesday and another test on Wednesday, and we still don't know what it is.  Most likely culprit: a virus of some sort.  

No cold symptoms.  And -oh so thankfully- no throwing up.  Just a fever that stays up no matter what.  Stubborn too, lingering on for days like this.  

But please, don't picture us all laying around on our sick beds. Ohhh no.  I can't convince the boys they are sick.  They have each had a few hours of lying around feeling terrible, but other than that, they've felt... well... great.  They run, they play, they laugh.  And I'm thankful for that too.
The boys before all the sickness.

And in the midst of all this?  I got some fillings replaced at the dentist this morning.  Oh the numbness.  If it wasn't so entertaining not to be able to feel or maneuver half your face it would just be torture.  ...or something.

So.  I am tired.  But -so far- I am not sick.

And that's all I can muster up for the ol' blog today!

I hope everyone is well soon and that it passes you over! I love those rascals. That's what they look like in that picture, rascals. Also, I think Dale is starting to resemble Daddy. After his hair cut. And after looking through all those old picture albums.

Did you escape the literal storms?? Sure hope so. And hoping the bugs are gone for good soon:)
