A week of crazy...

This has been one crazy week, is tomorrow really Friday?! I thought it might still be Monday, just a really LONG Monday! So, here's a quick update....We have been to the dentist 2 days this week Elizabeth and William the first day, Amanda, Madison, and James the next. Jonathan is doing fair, today is day 6 and he doesn't want to eat or drink. Tonight I let him pick out what he wanted for dinner, thinking that he might eat better that way. He picked his favorite breakfast foods a bagel with cream cheese, apple sauce, and juice. Guess what?..........He didn't eat, he sat at the table and cried. Love his sweet heart he wants the food, he told me his tummy hurts.....he's hungry. He's also still running a low grade fever. Arthur and I spent half the day today with the CPA finishing our taxes, there done....YAY!!!! Then when I got home Elizabeth and Rebekah said Wesley didn't feel well. Rebekah had the joy of cleaning up diarrhea that went up under his arms. He has a fever of 102 runny nose and pulling at his ear, he always gets diarrhea with is ear infections, poor baby. I guess we'll be going to the doctor, just the way I wanted to finish out this LONG Monday ....oops! I mean week. I have been tagged, I look forward to working on that...Thanks!

Last and far from the least tonight, I wanted to share a picture of Wesley's boo-boo hand. There are many dangers in all or homes and we try to educate all of the kids on what they are. Well one of the kids I guess missed out on one of the lessons. It was LESSON 101 treadmill dangers!
#1 Don't use the treadmill with Wesley up
#2 If Wesley is up he needs to stay in another room while it's being used
#3 If Wesley is awake someone needs to be with him at all time
#4 Ask Mom or Dad before you use the treadmill

I don't think I need to give you the other 97 dangers, the top 4 are the ones that apply. Wesley put his hands in the back of the treadmill and it pulled his hands under it. We are thankful he has hands left, it burnt the skin off of both hands. The picture isn't real clear, he didn't want to sit still.

The left hand is the worst, the right hand it mainly caught the top knuckles. The child that was on the treadmill felt AWFUL and said they missed the lesson. I think all the kids have a new respect for the treadmill!

Oh gracious! I am new to your blog. When my middle son was 10 months his foot got under the treadmill while running (three year old turned it on) and it burned his skin right off. Ouch! Love your blog!

Awww his poor little hand! I hope he's not in too much pain. Don't worry too much about Jonathan not eating, as long as he's drinking. Kennedy didn't eat for almost 10 days after hers.

Oh poor baby Wesley...and little Jonathan. What a week. I hope this week will be better.

Praying that Jonathon is starting to do better by now with eating(I am behind on my blog reading!). And I hope that little mans hand is feeling better!

I don't know if you have read about Joe- on my blog- but he did the exact same thing!! He burned the skin off the inside of 2 fingers. As it healed he didn't use it enough I guess because he got a scar contracture (won't straighten all the way out) and he now wears a splint to bed to see if we can avoid surgery. It happened Dec 26. we should know next visit (in about 3-4 weeks) if he needs surgery.
I hope Wesley is healing nicely. Poor baby!
