So we leave today for NC and both kiddos are sick! AP cried on and off from 1:45am until 5:45am, she had a fever and felt like a little space heater in our bed. C woke up around 2am and was burning up, too! We took turns comforting them throughout the night. AP seems a little better today and is actually sleeping peacefully right now, but C has continued to go downhill. He keeps saying that he is cold, and it is never cold in our house. He must have chills from his fever. He keeps asking for more medicine and I have to explain that it too soon to take it again. He says his legs hurt, too. I'm guessing he's got the allover body ache. This should make for an interesting long car ride. I had to call in sick for the last day of VBS and feel so bad leaving the other teacher in my room by herself with all the rambunctious 3 year olds :(

* We made it to NC and our first stop was a walk-in clinic for C. AP and I (yes, I ended up with a fever, aches, and chills, too) recovered fairly quickly, but C got the short end of the stick. He was diagnosed with rubeola, not to be confused with rubella. Basically, it's a virus that we can't really do anything for. He has a rash from head to toe. The doc just said give Benadryl for the rash and Tylenol/Motrin for the fever...AND it's highly contagious. Great, we are visiting my in-laws with a highly contagious virus in tow.
