Just can't get over it

First off - A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my older brother CLINT who turns 29 today - Happy Birthday!!

Thanks everyone who posted on our last post: "Who's reading?" It's fun to know that people we know are reading even if you don't always comment.
I've mentioned in the last few posts that we've been fighting a cold and it seems to be getting worse.  Marshall is ok now but the rest of us just can't get over it.  We went to the dr. today to figure out what is wrong.  Chandler has bronchitis and an ear infection in his right ear.  This is the first time he's had an ear infection that we've known about and he hasn't really acted like his ear has been bothering him so I was a bit surprised at this.  I have a sinus infection - surprise, surprise.  Rowan has lots of mucous draining down his throat and a cough & was tested for RSV which came back negative, thank goodness.  Rowan isn't on any antibiotics since he is so little but we'll just make sure to  keep running the humidifier, using lots of baby vapor rub, and giving him tylenol when he needs it.  The dr. said we probably have all these problems because we've had the cold virus so long that it developed into other things, alas the bronchitis, ear infection & sinus infection.  Chandler and I are on antibiotics now so hopefully we will start feeling better soon.  I'm glad we got it all figured out though as I have to work this weekend and that's hard to do when you aren't feeling great.
The job hunt is still on and Marshall had a phone interview with a company in Boise on Friday.  He's also got a couple other prospects in Arizona, Michigan, & Washington.  We'll see if anything comes from those.  He's trying to keep busy though, and decided recently to fix our car.  I should have taken pictures of it before he started fixing it, but I busted out the back taillight about a year ago and we lost half our bumper this winter.  Yes, it very much looked like a redneck car.  Marshall bought a new tail light & bumper and is over at his parent's house right now putting the new bumper on with his dad.
Yesterday we went and had Rowan's 3 month pictures done.  They turned out so cute and he was so smiley.  I will post them once they are available online.
That's all for now.  The boys are napping, guess I should get one in before work.

Wow that stinks that you are all sick!! Poor boys! I can't imagine how hard you are working to take care of everyone and you're sick yourself. I fall apart when I'm sick. I hope Marshall has some luck with the job hunt!

That bites that everyone is so sick. This has been an especially bad flu season. Hope you are all feeling better soon.

How are you and how are things at work without me? I miss all of you guys and need to call up there, but I am so EXHAUSTED that I can't get up the energy to do anything once I get home from work. Things are going good here, but I sure miss all my friends and their great stories! Keep posting so I know what's up. I hope you all start feeling better soon!

Sorry to hear that Chan has been sick. If it makes you feel any better, Dean gets his ear infections the same way. His ear has ruptured twice - both times with no warnings, signs or complaints of discomfort until it happened. All of a sudden he'll get a high fever and within a couple hours I'll notice the red, yucky drainage. I just have drops now for when it happens. My doc was like, "well, if he hasn't warned ya the first two times, I doubt he ever will so just take these for later, just in case." haha. Thanks Doc. :o)

Yuck, I hope you are all feeling better by now. We had that same cold. Mine turned into a sinus infection and Zander's went to his ears. Like Chandler, he didn't act like his ears were bothering him either. I thought that was a little strange. But he did cry for 2 hours straight the night before I took him to the Dr., so that was my indicator.
