Life at the VanDyk's
Well, no pics for a while folks. We are just surviving these days. For the past 8 weeks the girls have had colds, fevers, and earaches. Just when we thought we were through, they both ended up with another earache! Poor kids. Then on Sunday night I went to emerg for some serious tooth pain and was given some anitbiotics and pain killers. I went to the dentist at 9:00 Monday morning and was home by 10:00 with one less tooth. There was a chronic cyst under a molar and boy did it hurt. So, Mia, Ksena, and I have been vegging on the couch all week like zombies hoping to get better. Dan has been very busy at work this week and is in need of some sleep too. I should mention, that we would not be getting through this with ease without the help of faithful Nana and Papa. They have babysat numerous times and we truly appreciate it! You spoil us with care!

That is crazy Mel, sounds like you've had a painful week. I had that same problem 2 weeks ago with the same outcome (1 less tooth!) It is not fun at all, and then to add 2 sicko kids to the deal, I couldn't imagine! Hope you all feel better soon :)

Oh Mel, sounds like you have had a ruff couple of days thats for sure! I hope that things start to slow down for you! If you need anything don't hesitate to ask, even if you just want some company:-)

Sounds awful Mel! Hope you all start feeling better soon. There's nothing worse than being sick and having sick kids too - and then having your husband gone working all the time too? Good thing Dan's parents are helping out lots!
