March 8, 2006 - We were in the hospital. Conner was having sugery on his pinky finger.
March 7-10, 2007 - We were in the hospital. Micah was dangerously dehydrated from a tummy bug.
March 8, 2008 - We were in the hospital. Joey was coming into the world.
March 8, 2009 - I was worried sick, wondering what would put us in the hospital this time. Turns out nothing!
March 4, 2010 - I was realizing that March 8th was coming. But decided not to worry since we broke the streak last year.
March 6, 2010 - Okay, so we weren't exactly in the hospital. But only because the urgent care clinic was still open. Conner sliced his foot open on a rusty nail. We thought we might need some stitches or DermaBond, and perhaps a tetanus shot. But we got away with just SteriStrips and an antibiotic.
(Yes, that is a goofy leprachaun sock you see on Conner's other foot. They're his favs right now...)
***Update - I'm happy to report that as of 3/10/10 there have been no more injuries/major illnesses (although I do have strep throat and tonsillitis right now)/hospitalizations this week. Hallelujah!
