On the Road Again?

Well, we're frantically trying to get ready for our spring break trip, but we're not sure we'll be able to leave on time.  What a week!

We got Jamie back to school this week (he's been working non-stop to get caught up after missing all of last week), but Craig's been out sick all this week.  Turns out he wasn't just crashed on Monday...he got strep throat AGAIN!  For those of you keeping score, that's twice in two weeks!!  He just finished his antibiotics Sunday.  The doctor said the test came back positive immediately, even before the timer went off.  The poor kid is absolutely miserable.  His throat hurts so much he can barely eat or drink - when Craig loses his appetite, things are really bad!  Unfortunately, after going to a sleep-over party Saturday night, we assumed his symptoms Sunday and Monday were "just" CFIDS.  It's so hard to tell sometimes.

We are all really excited about the trip (well, Craig will be when he perks up).  I have an awesome stack of audio books for the ride, Ken will get groceries tomorrow (he got mad at me for going to Trader Joe's Tuesday!), we'll load up the camper, and hopefully hit the road.  I can't wait to be camping again!
 
So, we're hoping Craig feels well enough so we can leave as planned...wish us luck!

  8. I hope you have a lovely holiday and that your son perks up to enjoy it! I find honey, lemon and glycerin really helps a sore throat, especially if you can't eat anything.
