Bad Weekend at the Thacker Household

Well I hope everyone had a better weekend than the Thacker household did. I knew it wasn't a good sign when I got a call from the sitter saying that Blake was covered in a 'rash' and that I needed to come and get him. I immediately left work and picked him up and it was horrible! He has never done this before so I had no clue what to do. He didn't seem to be bothered by it, but it looked awful. I got right into the doctor to find out that it was caused by his STREP THROAT!!! He wasn't even acting sick at all so we had no clue he was sick. I felt so bad for him :(

Here is a picture of his rash. It was awful!

So of course we knew that Kylie needed to be seen since they are always in each other's faces. We got her into the doctor too and you guessed it....Strep Throat AND another Ear Infection!! Poor baby cannot get over her ear infections and now Strep too! She has only been a week off of her antibiotics and the doctor said it was VERY infected. I never thought I would say this but I can't wait for her to get her tubes! It is scheduled for April 14th which is the only day our ENT does surgery at Kosair. Her primary doctor said she will probably just have to be on antibiotics until her surgery.

So on Saturday we were supposed to go to Lexington for a wedding and I woke up sick too. Wow can the weekend get any worse? Of course it can! On top of me being sick, I had a test for school on yesterday and I DID NOT want to study!

My MIL has stayed with the kids this week since it is her Spring Break, which has helped out a lot. The kids are much better today and pretty much back to normal. We took a walk this evening because it was so nice outside. Blake threw his normal fit when we came in but we told him that we were going in to watch Shrek so he was ok then.

Here are some pictures of the kids and as you can see they feel much better.

Blake likes to play in his room now by himself. I'm still not convinced to let him do this yet.

Look how big her foot looks here!


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! I would have freaked out!! That looks awful! I am so sorry you had a bad weekend. I hope things get better. You will make it through all this! You are a ROCK STAR!
    Heres hoping for a WONDERFUL Thursday!!
    LOVE YA!

  2. DANG! That rash looked awful! I have never seen such a thing OR knew that strep could cause that!!!! Geez!! I am taking notes on the whole 2 kid thing: 1 gets sick, pretty much expect the other one to be sick!!! Poor little girl, but I hear those tubes are really great for them once it happens! good luck the next 2 weeks! Hopefully this weekend will be better!
