Sick of Being Sick!

Our family could really use your prayers.  About six weeks ago, Ryan was sick with full body aching.  About a week later, Abigail got sick with hand, foot and mouth disease.  Then, Olivia caught what we believe was the same thing.  Soon after, Ryan got really sick with a virus that we assumed was also hand, foot and mouth disease except his was ten times worse!  He has been out of commission for the past week.  Olivia spent the night at her grandparents' house last night and I found out this morning that she would be coming home early with a temp. Poor thing is sleeping right now after I carried her from the kitchen table after she fell asleep.  I just want my sweet family to be well.  I don't know who has had what and who hasn't anymore.  I'm not sure if it's the same virus being passed around (can that happen?) or different illnesses. I'm extremely grateful that I haven't gotten sick, but I just want my family to be well. I don't think we've ever had so many consecutive days of illness in our house!

It's just 'sick season'. Everyone in our house house as been sick at some stage for the past month. It's all viral. We just manage the symptoms with ibuprofen and paracetamol and otherwise get on with life. It'll all be over by summer.
