To say we've had a rough month would be an understatement...

Jan 29 - Mackenzie and Miranda wake up with fevers - no flu, no strep, just a cold/virus. Mackenzie misses 2 days of school and Miranda 1.
Jan 31 - Mackenzie's leg gets worse - diagnosed with a MSRA and given stronger antibiotics. (leg improves in 2 days).
Feb 3 - I feel crummy with a random cough that appears out of nowhere.

Feb 8 - I am diagnosed with broncial infection from the flu - get meds (dr. visit)
Feb 8 - Mackenzie has small rash on ankles

I'm currently waiting on a friend's sister (a dr) to look at my pictures of Mackenzie's rash to tell me if I need to be worried or if we've just gotten yet another odd and random illness. I think it could be 5th disease because her cheek is red like it's been slapped, but who knows. At this point all I can do is laugh at all of the ailments that are hitting us. In the middle of all that, I had a friend have complications after having a baby and literally almost die, so it could be worse. That's what I keep telling myself. It could be way worse.
