When it rains it pours.

First off, thank you for all the well wishes that I received about the kiddo's and my hand. My fingers are healing. They blistered and popped, and became more sore than when I burned them!

My 2 and 3 year old have tonsillitis. They have started antibiotics and are so much better now. Of course that's not the big problem anymore....my 2 month old, James, has
RSV. It's really scary. We have to watch him very closely, there is a big chance he will have to be hospitalized if he is having trouble breathing. Right now his oxygen levels are really good. He is coughing up a storm, and it breaks my heart to have such a young baby be so sick.

He went to the doc yesterday, and today, and if he is any worse tomorrow, then we have to go back. I am so strung out. 3 sick children at once is not fun. Thank goodness Katie and Ben are feeling better. Now I am starting to get it. It was only a matter of time. There is no way parents can escape this when their children are sick.......They have all been doing a lot of cuddling with their momma.

I PROMISE this will turn back into a knitting blog as soon as I pick up some needles :-) There just isn't enough hours in the day lately!

Oh no! Sorry about your hand--I had a nasty bacon-fat burn over the summer so I feel your pain.

You asked on my blog--thanks for visiting by the way!--about using a mixer as a ball winder. You can find a bunch of tutorials online but this one is pretty clear:

Looked too much like a 2-person job to me--but maybe you can recruit the kiddos to help when they're feeling better!

Jenn,
You were so kind to comment on my blog when I had one kid sick. It's nothing compared to what you're going through. I just had a week long bout with tonsillitis myself. It's no picnic. Please don't hesitate to take the baby to the hospital if you get at all nervous about how he is looking. I used to be a Pediatric ICU nurse, and RSV is nothing to take lightly. Follow your gut, and when in doubt, take him in. Good luck getting through this, and know you're in so many people's prayers.
