Update

Well, It's about time I give out another update on our goings on. This week started out busy, when on Friday Kori got an unexplained fever. I treated it with tylenol but it persisted. She also showed signs of tooth tenderness so I checked it out and it appeared she was getting her molars in. So, we thought nothing of it until on Sunday I noticed her whole gum line was swollen and a little red and she still had her fever. So, Monday I made some calls to insurance comapanies and Dr's offices to get her an appointment. That night Devyn got a fever and Kori had small sores inside her bottom lip. Tuesday Brian went to work then had to come home to help me take the monkey girls on the hour long car trip to the Dr's office. Turns out the girls got hand, foot and mouth disease. I looked it up and found out that there is no real way to figure out how they got it. Here is a link to the CDC website just in case you want to read about it. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/revb/enterovirus/hfhf.htm#1 It's a virus that resides in the intestine and can stick around for a few weeks. They had a cousin who had it about six months ago, luckily they don't have the all over face sores yet. Kori has two little sores on her lower lip and Devyn hasn't shown any yet.

In other news after much deliberation Brian and I have decided to upgrade our vehicle. We are going to be purchasing a Nissan Pathfinder. We are very excited because it's a 7 passenger and gets the same gas mileage as the Jeep does, possibly even better. We get to pick it up on Friday.
Well, that's us in a nutshell. I'm busy squishing up foods for hurting girls and the girls are busy getting into trouble and Brian is busy 'harrasing motorists' as he puts it. Hope you are all doing well.

Poor little Kori, her mouth looks so sad. Hope they recover quickly. We should talk soon. I misst you.

This reminds me of something some of you kids caught when you were very small, especially while still nursing, but the name escapes me right now. If it is the same, it is not uncommon at all, but very contagious, and the medication clears it right up.
