Brayden is still sick...please pray (edited)

Well, June has been quite a month for us. Let me recap for those of you who don't know how it has been.

June 10 - Brayden broke out into a rash
June 11 - Brayden diagnosed with strep and scarlet fever...start antibiotics
June 20 - Brayden and Layna wake up with fevers...off to the doctor. Brayden diagnosed with a virus (he is still on the previous antibiotics)...Layna put on antibiotic for sinus infection. The fevers finally break on June 23
June 24 - Daddy goes to doctor for similar symptoms...on antibiotics for ear and sinus infections...surprisingly, mommy is still ok!

Both kiddos have horribly runny noses, congestion and coughing...

June 29 - Brayden spikes fever of 103.1 in the evening. No fever for Layna, but she also has the runny nose and cough. Although, Layna's symptoms don't seem as severe as Brayden. Perhaps her antibiotic is doing it's job...off to the doctor again tomorrow.

I really hope to find something out at the doctor's office tomorrow. Poor Brayden has been sick for pretty much the entire month of June. He looks so sad laying on the couch watching Little Einsteins with daddy. For those of you that know him...he does not usually sit still for long.

Mommy is very tired too. I am managing to stay healthy through all of this, but am exhausted from taking care of all THREE of my sick kids (daddy included).

Please say a little prayer for Brayden's health. While I know it is not anything serious, it is still hard for me to see him feeling so poorly. I just want him to feel better.

I will update tomorrow after we go to the doctor. Thank you in advance for your prayers.

Edited to add...we are back from the doctor. Brayden has a very bad ear infection in his right ear and his throat is very red. Layna does not have any infections to report. Both kiddos were prescribed antibiotics. I sure hope the antibiotics work this time.

Here are photos of the kids when both of them had fevers last week.

I HATE it when little ones are sick and can't tell you why or whats hurting. I hope they start feeling better soon and the dr's can figure out whats going on.

Sorry to hear that everyone is sick. Evan suffered through some ear infections a few months ago. Definitely not fun, but it will get better.

I'm so sorry they are still sick! Have the acidophlus tabs I told you about helped at all??? They were miracles for HEnry when he was sick all the time--all those drugs keep those poor immune systems so low. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
