Keeping busy...

After a few days of vacation for the kids they are all back in school. I don't think they get another day off until the end of school now.
We have a lot coming up for the next month. Our oldest daughter is graduating from hight school and our youngest daughter is graduating from middle school. Our middle daughter graduated from middle school last year. So, this May we have two celebrations but only one party. We are planning a big party at one of the parks here in town.
So, if you don't see me online much in the next few weeks, it is because we are getting ready for the upcoming celebrations. I try to get on as much as i can since I am addicted to blogging now:)I just looked at my profile and have been blogging now for one year. Yeah!!!! Doesn't seem that long but i have learned alot of things(how to put things on your blog and sidebar) It's a lot of fun figuring things out on your own even:)
Hope you all have a great week,and hope the warm weather comes back soon!!! We need some Spring weather soon!!

A Crazy Week

Well, we found out that our daughter never did have the mumps. The first doctor she went to read the blood tests wrong and told us it was mumps.Then we took her back to the dr. here and he said it was just a swollen gland that caused the infection. So, since i have a daycare home i had to close down until the second blood test came back that said she defintely did NOT have the mumps. I have had no kids here all week, which also means i don't get paid for this week. I really don't want to have to go through this again. This week has been horrible. I have had to tell daycare parents-yes we do have mumps you cannot bring your child and then the next day-oh they called and said she doesn't have the mumps and you can go ahead and bring them. I know these parents are getting confused. I know i was for a while. In the mean time, our daughter was enjoying her days off from school:) They had spring break the week before and since she didn't have a note from the dr. until yesterday(when the 2nd blood tests came back) she had to stay home from school. She was not upset at all. Of course, she only has one day of school this week b/c of Good Friday and Easter, and they also have Monday off for some reason.
I just hope life gets back to normal soon b/c this last week has driven me crazy.

This is no April Fools Joke....

Our youngest daughter has the mumps!!!! We were shocked to find out the news because the mumps have been gone for so many years we didn't think it was possible for kids to get them anymore,but our daugther was visiting her aunt and uncle for spring break last week and Thursday evening she called and said she had a small bump on her neck. I was thinking it was just a sore throat and told her we would come pick her up the next day. Well, they called and that next day her jaw line up to her ear were swollen!! The only thing i could think of was mumps but didn't think she could get it b/c of having the MMR vaccine when she was younger.
We got a call from the hospital last night and they confirmed that it was definitely the mumps and we have to take her back in tomorrow for another blood test to see if they can figure out when she was in contact with it and how long she is contagious.
Poor thing had a rough day on Friday. Swelled quite a bit but has been sleeping a lot which i guess is good for her to help fight of this virus. My hubby keeps teasing her about looking like the "godfather". You have to know my hubby-he likes to tease like that and it is not to be mean or anything-I think that is how he handles situations sometimes. She has a hard time laughing, smiling and especially sneezing-that one is bad:P
Hopefully, we are on the way to getting better. I have to close my daycare for a few days b/c it is a communicable disease and i have to report it to the county. AAAGGHH!I may have to stay closed until we get a clean bill of health from the health department. Just hope she is better soon. She will have to stay out of school all week. They said it could last up to 9 days. Just hope no one else gets them!!!!! I couldn't stand to be quarantined for much longer!!!!!
