OUCH!!!


So I was back at the Dr. Office Yesterday. We definitely take advantage of our health insurance. The Doctor even joked that our room in the back was almost ready for us to move in. Alyssa had a bad rash on her cheeks they call it "slap-cheek" They were bright red and she had a rash all over her body. The next day Austin woke up with a horrible rash starting on his neck and covering his chest and abdomen. Turns out Alyssa has fifth disease (sounds worse than it is) it's a virus that will go away on it's own. And Austin has horrible eczema. Which I knew, but I have never seen it that bad. So I had to suck it up and pay $17 for this skin ointment. It works though by that night it had improved sooo much! And then today I was running up the stairs and tripped over my own big toe, and broke it---ouch!! I have it in a splint, and that has helped but, I am amazed at how much I use my big toe. Chad just got his test results back from the Doctor about his Cholesterol and found out they couldn't test certain things because his triglycerides were too high, and has to go get tested again...I swear we are falling apart!!

Wow, that sucks! Broken toes are awful too, because there really isn't much you can do about them. They supposedly "heal" on their own, but it definitely takes a while. But I'm glad Austin's excema is doing better. Keep that bottle of ointment someplace safe. :)
