Well, just as we wrapped up Wilson’s infected leg wound issue (yes, his culture came back positive for MRSA! Thankfully, he was on the appropriate antibiotic at home so no further intervention was necessary) our household got hit head-on (no pun intended) with lice!! Yep, for a gal who is a borderline germ-a-phobe, this isn’t a great week for me! We’re not sure how long we’ve had it but we all have it and are on day 2 of treatment with accompanying laundry marathon. I admit I’m feeling very overwhelmed and burdened with trying to treat everyone while keeping up with the constant cleaning that has to happen. I dreamt last night that we got everything cleaned up, closed up and then left for an exotic vacation for 28 days (the recommended time one should keep things bagged up after treatment)! Needless to say, I was sad to wake up.
The kids, on the other hand, have been amazing troopers (and Rolf?…quite the nit-picker!) and all are maintaining pretty good attitudes…I’m making everyone wear hair caps at home and there were even ideas thrown around last night for a “Lunch Lady” song…stay tuned! Ha The silver lining in this is that we found Olivia’s lost iPod yesterday when we tore her room apart for a deep cleaning…that made us happy. We have a huge week ahead…lice aren’t the end of the world but they sure are disrupting our world and are hard to manage when you’re low on emotional reserves to begin with…would you please pray…that we’ll nip this in the bud with this first 7-day treatment regimen and for, well, stamina, I guess? So grateful for the friends who have been able to lend a hand and our prayer warriors near and far! Bless you friends…Happy 4th of July!!!
