March Madness

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.

...and now we're praying that that was March 8th hospital experience for 2010...

(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!

I had forgotten about your March 8 Madness...guess I thought February was "mad" enough! I do hope that ends your emergency trips. If things come in threes, that should be it! (Conner's emergency trip with his throat, Joey's and now Conner's again.) Anyway, hang in there! Love you!
