Who Loves PINK???

SAVANNAH!

(just not in her eyes!)



yep...swollen shut!



but still smilin! (at times)

Last night I watched Sav's eyes getting red, but couldn't tell if it was irritation from allergies (seeing as how the quads have been snotty and congested all week)...but when I woke her up from her nap, her eyes were crusted shut and swollen! I immediately called the pedi to call in a prescription (keep in mind, we are out of town!) and within 15 minutes, little Savannah had her first dose of ophthalmic antibiotics and is feeling much better!

Just praying the others don't get it! Conjunctivitis is HIGHLY contagious! (Oh, and the pedi said that she will probably end up getting ear infections because they usually go hand-n-hand!...NEATO!) Needless to say, Mama has been disinfecting and washing hands like crazy!

Life with quads...never a dull moment! (Can I getta "AMEN", quad sistas?)

Meghan Appleberry said...

Bless her little heart. Still smiling that is soooooo precious!

Tubre Quads said...

Amen, Momma! Spoken like a true preacher and you are preaching to ME this afternoon! We have escaped a complete outbreak of pink eye on two occasions when Emma got it. Lots of Lysol wipes and raw knucles :(

YOU'LL GET AN "AMEN" FROM A SINGLETON (x2) MOMMY TOO! LIttle Sav is still lookin' precious even with swollen eyes. Get better kiddo!

Sarah said...

Oh, the poor sweetheart. Look at that beautiful smile though. Good luck, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't spread.

Goerlich Quadruplets said...

Amen! I feel for you mamma, adding anything to this already mad crazy life is tough stuff. Guess what we have been sharing around our house? A nice case of fever blisters in and around the mouths..yuck! Poor babies all have it except for Noah for some reason, the little rascal has escaped it thus far. So, needless to say I'm sending you no kisses this week just big huge hugs! Love, Mari

Just so you know...Life with triplets isn't exactly a walk in the park :)
We had conjunctivitis while on vacation as well and boy oh boy... it was ROTTEN!! I had no idea how hard it was to get drops in 5 babies eyes... And your peed is totally right, the ear infections come right along with it. I was so thankful that our peed was willing to call in Rx's as needed. We must've called him every single day while we were gone...
Sending well wishes to you all!!

Brittany said...

Crazy! Brooks had pink eye in both eyes this week too! On Tuesday morning his eyes were swollen and crusted shut and when I finally got those drops from the pedi in his eyes - he was literally better the next day! And so far John and I have escaped it. No ear infection yet. Yikes!!! We will send get better vibes to Sav! I was shocked his healed as quickly as it did!

Laurie said...

Aww... poor thing! At least she still looks happy. Hope it gets better sooN!

Barbara Manatee said...

Oh no! Poor baby girl! Good luck keeping it from the other kiddos and hoping it doesn't spread for her either. So glad you got relief fast though...that does help some!

Hey girl- we went through this last week- baby Monroe did not get an ear infection. But I got conjunctivitis too, think in the wee am hours wiped his eyes and then wiped mine. Thankfully little girl did not get it. Hand washing is a must! (which you already know RN : ) ) Thank goodness for ABT ; ) Mo

Jenny said...

I always read your blog but have never commented. I was reading this post and decided i should say hello and let you know that we are going through the same stuff at our house. My little man has pink eye too and an ear infection. No fun at all!! He started the drops on Friday evening and is already looking a ton better. I hope Sav gets better soon....and I pray she doesn't get any ear infections. C'mon, isn't having just pink eye bad enough??

The Carlsons said...

uff! poor savannah :(...and mama and dad!! praying the boys don't get it.

yeah, our four shared runny noses for the first time just before thanksgiving. now, i think all of them are getting their four front top teeth. ah, when it rains, it pours ;)

Mercedes said...

Poor girl! Never fun. Course she looks like she is having perfect fun in the pix.

Uma and Wil said...

Poor Savannah! And you! At least she still seems to be in good spirit. I'll pray that the ear infection goes away quickly. My one just had her first serious allergic reaction a couple of weeks ago and I freaked and practically ran to the German emergency room with the swollen child in her carrier. German doctors were like the most stern librarians I'd ever met and they looked kind of annoyed when I hysterically shoved my baby in their arms. I miss the warm fuzzy helpfulness of American doctors...

jag said...

"AMEN," indeed! Feel better Savannah!

mandy_moo said...

Aww, poor baby. At least she's still smiling!! :)

Melinda Smith said...

Poor thing!!! At least she is all smiles:) Hope the boys do not get it!

Moni Graf said...

Holla, sista!

Poor baby girl, Sav. And here she was thinkin' "No Quarantine" this year. Boo, Hiss for conjunctivitis! Hey that rhymes! Wow, I really need to go to sleep.

Love ya!

Oh dear oh dear, no fun. I remember when our two girls, then ages 2 and 3, had pink eye on vacation in Hawaii! We were holding them down and putting drops in, on the beach. Eeeh gads.

rebecca said...

Oh, poor baby girl! We will be praying that she is better soon and that she does NOT get an ear infection.
Blessings!

Beav's Wife said...

Oh man.... Poor baby-her sweet smile is so cute though!

Joan said...

Poor baby girl! Here is praying that she clears up fast!

Lindsay said...

Hi there. I have been reading your blog for about a year now and wanted to post and let you know that I have started making some bows and set up a website.

the website is www.lindentreeboutique.blogspot.com and my family blog is munsons.blogspot.com.

The quads are so cute and I love reading your blog!

Take care and I sure hope your little princess is feeling better quickly!

Claire said...

Poor Sav!

Oh dear! I remember when I had that as a kid and I LOVED pulling off all the crusties - was that too gross to share here?

I guess Sav isn't quite old enough to get to enjoy that yet?

Hmmm...

:)

sandi said...

I hate to lurk, So I thought I would say Hi. Love your blog. I love reading about other crazy families.

Hang in there with the eye goop, It is so contagious, but so easily cured! I would pick conjunctivitis for bug of choice.

Jenny said...

AMEN...AMEn...AMen...Amen..amen:) hah...i was singing a lil song for you there. Been there done that. W/o the ear infection though.
love you momma and hope she gets better soon w/o spreading it to anyone else!

LOVE YOU!

My little one gets eyes like that when ever he has a cold, but luckily no ear infections to go with it, so you may be lucky!

Tabatha said...

I feel ya on this one. Tristan had double pink eye the week of Thanksgiving and pasted it to my husband who gotin in both eyes as well. I don't think I have ever washed my hands so much! Glad she is getting to feeling better though! Hopefully no one else gets it!

Brad and Alyssa said...

Ooohhh good luck! We just got over pink eye---ALL 5 of us in our family got it! It was horrible!

Kalle said...

Poor girl. I hope she has a speedy recovery and keeps this one to herself.

TheBMillers said...

ahhhh poor girl - she still looks cute smiling away though.

I was driving back from Missouri (6 hours) with my 18 month old and 3 year old. The 18 month old cried the entire time she wasn't sleeping - and it made me think of you - I was about to go crazy with 1 and I don't know how you did it with 4!! You are superwoman - God knew you had enough patience for 4 and me only 1 ;)

Laura said...

Aww Pink Eye.. that's the worst! Just a lurker here, but I think you're family is just beautiful. So blessed! I'm newly pregnant, a little over 10 weeks. I know you don't have a ton of spare time, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on some baby products that "worked" for you guys. What kind of bottles you preferred and the things you had around that the babies just didn't enjoy. I figure you must know almost all of the tricks!

I hope all is well in Texas.. we're freezing here in WI!

Andria said...

Aww, poor Sav. I love those drops! They work so well. It's a battle to put them in, but so relieving. I'm glad you got a RX filled without having to go in. So cool! Sending healthy vibes your way!

Sooz said...

Poor baby..praying the others don't get it including mama and daddy!

Lainey-Paney said...

Oh no!!!

Following Him said...

Poor baby...don't you dare have a quad sickness party like the Murrays are having now! Hang in there!!!
