There really isn't much on my mind lately except for
The babies have RSV. Wheezing, gagging, choking, and not sleeping. It is like having newborns again. But you know, it is a privelege to be the one to ease their pain, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health... when you say those vows to your spouse you are saying them by default to your children even if they aren't born yet.
Harper was diagnosed on Tuesday and Lily's symptoms are mimicking Harper's about a day behind. The Dr. said the virus will plateau at the worst stage for 3-4 days then start to taper off. I believe we are in the worst now so hopefully through the weekend it will get better. I didn't have the days to take off but I also did not have a choice. This virus is contagious but in adults shows up as the common cold so if Nick and/or get it it won't be as bad.
For now we are just waiting it out. Thanks for all of your words of encouragement and prayer.
