Keeping Our Pediatrician in Business

OK, so I know I haven't been writing the most positive things lately. But I'm sorry - things aren't so positive around our home right now.
I just got back from taking Mya to the pediatrician. Again.
This is our 5th visit to his office in the last 4 weeks (3 for B, 2 for Lo)
We've had 2 cases of pink eye, 2 ear infections, 1 sinus infection, and now one case of mouth sores (I was told it's the "mouth" part of Hand Foot and Mouth disease).
Mya woke up with a fever of 102.6 this morning and I immediately started to cry, because she's STILL on antibiotics!
I don't know what else to do! We've all but quarantined our family for the last month, and now this? This extremely contagious to children illness? Really?
And she's the one who seemed to be getting better the quickest.
Bryan got a cold a few weeks ago, but it's been really strange. It comes and goes - some days he has a sore throat, some days a cough, and some days just sinus pressure. Finally he went to the Instacare this week, where he was told they think it's something viral, but prescribed antibiotics anyway. I made him fill the prescription and start taking it yesterday because I'm so sick of sicknesses that I just might stab myself in the neck with a fork. Seriously.
Anyway, so, friends, ward members, and family, if you think we have just fallen off the face of the planet or become extreme homebodies, that isn't the case.
There's nothing I want more right now than to NOT be at home!!!!
Anyway, and a brief shout out to my wonderful friend who so willingly took Lauren to her preschool field trip today so that I could take Mya to the doctor. Thanks so much Kalisa - I'm so glad she didn't have to miss out on that!
Please, please, can someone summon the wellness fairies and send them to my house? We are in desperate need!

Ha Ha! Welcome to life with two toddlers. No sympathy here! Seriously, though. It totally sucks. And please don't stab yourself in the neck with a fork. Although the thought of it made me laugh a little.
