Happy New Year...

I hope that all of my friends have a nice New Year's Eve right now.
Here, at our home, it is VERY different than previously. Fred is awfully sick, with chicken-pox. For such a small child, being also pre-mature with underdeveloped immune-system, it's a hard disease to beat. Today it's the 4th day, he has spots all over his body - there is no clean place anywhere. I have not seen so many spots on any other child before. Of course it all aches and he hasn't let him put down for 2 nights - I was sitting on the couch the whole night holding him yesterday night and today night, my mom did the same. So for 2 nights, it has been crazy. AND, I have 2 more boys to take care for! These days I really feel that my limits to be strong are somewhere VERY close right now...
We discussed to go to the hospital, but the only hospital we could go right now, is the infection-hospital and I'm afraid that Fred, with his weak immunse system, would catch some other disease, too. I've consulted to 5 different doctors and right now, we have decided to stay home. So our New Year's Eve is like that: I'm staying in one room with Fred, trying to calm him down and trying to feed him, while Erik stays in another room with Sten and Ralf, playing with them and putting them to sleep at 9.30 p.m.. We don't meet each other - it's the most what we can do for Sten and Ralf NOT to catch the chicken-pox, although it's probably not possible that they don't catch it as they were so close together until we saw the spots and probably Fred has given the virus to other brothers, too - only a matter of time when they show their spots and it gets even harder.
Here we are - 5 of us, on New Year's Eve... praying that Fred's difficult days stay in 2010!

Oh oh, oh, I feel so sorry for your little Fred. All of us are now crossing our fingers that he will be well soon and that the other boys will be fine. I know that you are going to make it. I wish I was in Tallinn so that I could come and help you, but luckily you seem to have your mother there and I am sure that the rest of your family helps you a lot. Take care, I think of you all a lot. Hugs

Dear Karin,

Your babies are very beautiful, chicken pox will vanish in a few days, it is uncomfortable but not serious; Fred shall recover soon, let's keep our fingers crossed for him.Many happiness to you and your family in 2011.
