4th patient and 4 weeks

Brendon was really not feeling well today. It's been over 6 years since he last had pleurisy and this year we were unfortunately not able to stop it early enough. So after phoning the doc he started on the antibiotics we had in the fridge for Rachel's ear infection that we never used. He will have to see the doctor tomorrow and get the balance of the meds (needing more than what Rachel would have needed). I am thankful we had the meds though as by the end of the day he was already feeling better, although still coughing and needing to rest a lot.
So it was another quiet day at home.
I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning. Something I have also not made since high school. I think they will be made far more often from now on.
We spotted two new tiny rabbits in the garden today. So the breeding continues.....
Another of Rachel's consequences. If she leaves clothes lying around the house she has to spend 10 min sorting her cupboard. Most of the shelves have looked like that bottom one. Today she "earned" 10 min and actually even worked a bit longer as I think she got a glimpse of what it could look like if it was nice and neat. So killing two birds with one stone on this one. Hopefully she will learn to not leave clothes lying around and how to keep her cupboard tidy. :D
It was an overcast day today and so we got some games out to play with the girls this afternoon.
I am so glad to have these sparkling eyes and happy face back.
It's now been 4 weeks of illness in the home. I pray that Brendon would be well again soon and that this would be the end of these winter type problems.
