Yesterday I was listening as Emery was talking to Aunt Cammie on the phone.

Emery said to Cammie: "My daddy is a trick. He makes things "umpear" from the house. He makes them "umpear" out of my ear."

After that Cammie talked to Scott and said, "Scott did you pierce your ears!?!"
"Umpear" = Disappear/Appear
We just had to laugh!

I just didn't like the looks of this rash so I took Emery in to the doctor yesterday.

The Verdict: The doctor said that the rash is Fifth's Disease and was going to send her home. I mentioned that I was getting over Strep so she looked at her throat and it was red so she swabbed her and sure enough Emery has Strep. Good thing I took her in!
The crazy thing about Fifth's Disease is that once they break out they are not contagious anymore but by the looks of it I am sure any mother would want to get their children away!

It made my day!

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this package and it came yesterday in the mail!
I'm sure you are wondering what was in it!
I will post some pictures in a few days!
Hint: It was just in time for Easter!
Don't you just love the suspense!
Thanks Mama!
In the meantime I will be taking Emery to the doctor to figure out what we can do
about this awful rash!

On the Mend

Well, it has kind of been a rough week for me! I woke up Monday morning sore and achey and assumed that I was still recovering from my 6 mile run on Saturday. I was wrong! As the day when on I got rapidly worse as a sore throat, earache and headache settled in. I had chills and sweats on and off all day. I just did not feel good. It felt like strep. It was so hard because I could hardly get off the bed or couch. Mostly all Emery did was watch TV until she would get bored and I would read a book or two. Emery was a big helper and would play with Maycie and feed her snacks. When Scott got home I turned the kids over to him for some attention and went to bed! He took them to McDonalds so Emery could run and play. And Scott, being the sweet husband he is, brought me back a smoothie, a Rachael Ray Magazine and a Redbox movie "Marley and Me". He knows me well! That night Scott and his dad gave me a priesthood blessing and I figured that if I didn't feel better by the morning I would go in to the doctor. Sure enough I hardly slept that night.

When Emery got up in the morning I was talking to her and she said "Mommy you are still sick!" I asked her why she thought that and she said in a grovely voice, "because you sound like this."

I took Emery and Maycie to Gram and Pop's while I went to the doc. I had not been to the doctor for illness for at least 3-4 years. I went in and they knew it was strep before they even swabbed my throat to test it. I got the penicillin shot because I knew it was usually a quicker recovery. Emery spent the rest of the afternoon running errands and going out for lunch with Pop. He had to return something at the mall and he took her on the Merry-go-Round, and she talked him into going to the Disney Store and buy her something. She knows what she likes!
When Emery came home we took naps and watched more TV(BLAH!) until daddy came home from work. I just wanted to cry all day because it was the second day of all of this and my kids were getting restless.

Today I feel a bit better but still have to take it easy. Scott was able to come home early(too bad he couldn't earlier in the week) and did some laundry while I took a nap. Bless his heart we don't really have any clean clothes and he knew it would be helpful. He's so good!

Thank you Scott for all you do!
Thank you Gram for watching the girls while I went to the doc and for the yummy chili!
Thank you Pop for taking Emery for the afternoon! She is so spoiled!
Thank you to my fam for all the calls, love, and prayers!
Thank you Sharalee for the yummy Turkey soup and for checking up on me everyday even though you were busy going out of town!
Thank you to Yvonne for taking over YW and checking up on me everyday!

It was a rough week but I was well taken care of!
