I knew after I wrote that post on sugar, we'd get sick. And we did. Well, I didn't. But everyone else has or had runny noses. But they also were not going completely without sugar. I mentioned we ate at IHOP on Saturday and we all had lots of syrup :) (and don't quote me here, but I'm guessing they don't serve 100% maple syrup), amongst other things. Either way, we are doing much, much less sugar and feeling really good, generally speaking. I actually think we were pretty lucky. Elisabeth just went back to school, which means lots of shared germs, and last week, both of the kids that sit next to her desk, got sick: first with colds and then throwing up. She never did get the throwing up part, and her cold only lasted about two days. I hope we come out of this soon and without any ear infections. Oh, and by the way. We got our doctors bill today for our visit a month back with Annabelle's dislocated elbow. Wanna guess how much the two-second(literally) visit cost us? $179, and that's with insurance. They sure didn't save us much. The bill before insurance was $237. And, unfortunately, we've already used up our flex spending for the year. If this ever happens again, I think I'm going to try and fix it myself. I did some reading up on it and it doesn't look too complicated. Let's just hope this never happens again.
Just for fun: I can't seem to get enough of these superheros!
