Won't the sickness please stop?!?!

The twins started daycare twice a week in September 2009.  Since then, they have yet to attend a full month.  They are constantly coming down with something. 

Colin's baby book reads like a medical journal:

Jan - stomach flu
Feb - pneumonia
Mar - RSV (hospitalized)
Apr - tubes due to yet another EI
May - mommy is too tired to update the illnesses had this month
June - high fever virus
July - reactive airway disease/pneumonia (hospitalized)/throat virus

Over the weekend, Keira came down with a slight fever.  I say slight because anything under 104 is basically normal for them.  She didn't eat well.  She was better by Monday.  She went to daycare Tuesday.  Keith brought home a note saying there was an outbreak of hand, foot and mouth disease. 

You've got to be effin' kidding me.

Tuesday night, Colin had a slight fever. 

No, I am not surprised.

Wednesday, I actually came home sick from work with a temperature of 101 and a sore throat. 

OMG, now I've got HFM.

Last night, I looked in Colin's throat.  You couldn't see anything but lovely white bumps.

Murther furker.

You will notice I swear more when my children are sick.

One trip to Urgent Care (and one sorely missed mommy's night out) later, we have the diagnosis - NOT HFM!!!!  Hip hip hooray!!!  Rather just a throat virus. 

That I can live with.  I guess.  I mean I don't really have a choice.

The doctor did ask, after hearing about all the illnesses, the fact I had twins and another child at home, if mommy needed some "special medicine". Ah, if only he were serious. ;)
