And then... (a tale of how we all went down like rocks)

In this house, we really know how to do the post vacation let down with flair!  Let's have a little run down, shall we?

While in Mexico, Kamron decided to be a wild man and jump off of this:


We should know that we are too old for these kinds of shenanigans.  Between that and the bumpy airplane ride home, he ended up with a ruptured eardrum.

And then...

It was finally time for my big colonoscopy/endoscopy.  Just in case that in itself is not torturous enough, my doctor wanted me to do the tests on a three day clear liquid fast.  Three freaking days. People.  I was not fun to be around.  At all. At multiple points over the whole ordeal, I considered pulling the heads off the children just for sport.  There were lots of biopsies taken and now I just wait for the results.  I've also got a CT scheduled next week.  I'm beginning to think I have the most photographed guts ever!  Also, MoviPrep colonoscopy prep juice tastes like pee + ocean water + one drop of lemon juice.  Just sayin'.

Me coming out of anesthesia.  I don't care how old you are- toots are funny.  
Needless to say, I laughed a lot that day.

And then...

Sadie has been having similar tummy issues.  I'm no doctor, but I'm inclined to say that we have something hereditary going on here. So she got her guts and blood all checked out at the hospital this week as well.  Just FYI- they do not give a family discount.


And then...

Noah started running a fever and getting migraines.  He tends to do this seasonally, so we think that it is somehow allergy related.  So this week, in addition to all the rest of it, Noah was stapled to couch incapacitated with a high fever and a splitting headache.


And then... (is it getting freakishly comical yet?)

Our dog, Emma, sprained her "wrist" and couldn't walk.  And we ended up in the vet's office for a looooooooong time.  We were in there so long that the boys got bored and decided to lay on the floor and pretend to be dogs.  




And then...

Well, that's all.  But I think that's enough.  It's enough that on the one day that everyone felt decent enough to go to the pool, I may have experimented to see if this would fit in my travel mug.  The lid wouldn't go on, but I tried!  

I know, I know.  You're saying, "Meg!  Take your grown up juice box out of the package and just dump it in the cup!"  I couldn't find the scissors.  I just wasn't quite that desperate.    But by today, I may be!

In all seriousness, though, I think we are finally on the mend and can hopefully return to regularly scheduled programming soon!  I hope your week has been a little better than ours!  :-)
