It was bound to happen

There's a reason why I haven't been posting. Slowly, one by one, each of us is getting sick. Poor E is the worst. Congestion, running noses, fevers, nothing fun or glamourus. We are taking Baby E to urgent care today, after two horrible nights of me being up at all hours (and then being up all day too). Depending on how the boys look/feel too, they may get seen too. I'm just glad we have insurance, and while the thought of $15 copays x 3 scares me (R and I can tough it out, but the boys look worse than us combined), not having insurance is more frightening. Did I mention I heard yesterday our insurance company is laying off 2,000 people this month, and is due to raise insurance rates too? Just something I wanted to hear, right as our income level is decreasing. Now we'll have higher payments for the same coverage, and it'll eat up more of our take home pay. What a mess.... :(

Ugh. I am so sorry your household is sick. There's nothing worse than sick kids when you are sick yourself. I hope that everyone is on the mend ASAP!!

And I know what your saying about the insurance increasing. We were dealing with that a few months ago. Doesn't seem like anyone can get a break these days. (Hugs!)
