Welcome to Funville, I'm Katie and I'll Be Your Host

My child has been out of school since last Tuesday with a reported parasite (I just love that word, don't you? It's so refreshing and pleasant...parasite. MMmmmm.) Anyhoo-- we are STILL waiting on the results of his latest culture so that we can find out if it's negative giving him the "all clear" to return to school.

So, we go to the doctor this afternoon and, surprise of all surprises, the results are still inconclusive. In fact, the doctor said, "that's actually not so good because that's exactly the report we got right before he was diagnosed last week. That could mean it's still growing something."

Still growing something? No, that's not alarming in the slightest.

And, while we were there (actually, the REASON we were there) the doctor checked out Baby J. and discovered not one, but TWO ear infections. No wonder he's been Mr. Whiny McWhinerton for the past 24 hours. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in and we'll have our happy baby back!

Now, on a lighter note, here are some pics from Mother's Day in the Roses are Red household:

With a couple of sick youngins, we couldn't go anywhere. So, the hubs fixed up an indoor picnic with chicken salad, strawberries, deviled eggs and fresh flowers. It was a nice way to dine with my boys! (the best part were the "nature sounds" he downloaded on iTunes to simulate the outdoors...very cool...)

D-man dressed himself complete with a long sleeve shirt and Christmas tie. I sure do love my handsome lil' fella.

I believe that Baby J. had had his fill of the Mother's Day festivities.

A close-up of my beautiful flowers...

And finally, one of my favorite shots taken of the lone sunflower in my arrangement:

Enjoy and keep our boys in your prayers. Hopefully, we'll all be on the mend soon!

You've had more than your fair share of "tough" lately, haven't you? You all are absolutely in our prayers! :)

Sorry to hear about those sick boys. So do you just have to wait to see what's "growing" in D? Can they give him anything? How about you? Can they give YOU anything? You know...for pain and suffering. :)

We will keep the boys in our prayers! I was sure hoping you would have had the all clear by now. Hopefully tomorrow will be good news.

Poor baby!
Has he been on antibiotics before? Because mine always develop yeast infection diaper rashes. Just be warned - you have to get prescription cream to get rid of them. I - well, we - learned this the hard way. Poor little heinies.
