We've been hit with the plague.

I feel like crap, Izzy feels even worse and has pink-eye to boot, and now Sophie is getting pink-eye as well. Luckily for us, Chris was on vacation yesterday and today. Not so luckily for Chris, of course. I'm feeling a bit better today than yesterday, but worse right now than I did all day.

Poor Izzy is suffering mightily. He has his first sore throat, and the doctor said (via phone, no appointment available today) that it had settled in his eye and turned into conjunctivitis (pink eye). He also woke up last night crying with his ear hurting, which has turned into a bad ear infection judging from the amount of pain he's in. He lay in bed sobbing his heart out for an hour after we tucked him in. We kept going in there and checking on him, but he doesn't want us. The doctor called in eye drops, ear drops to numb the pain, amoxicillan, and he's on Triaminic for chest and cold congestion AND Tylenol for the pain. All that and the poor kid is still crying. He's breaking my heart.

I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of the saddest boy on earth (and my excuse for intermittent posting over the past couple, and next couple, of days):
