Here is what I have been doing over the last two weeks. Lord A has been sick with a cold and then Strep, Sporty Girl had the cold and then my better half came down with a cold as well (we are seeing if the Strep is taking hold on him yet..sigh). With so many people sick and everyone taking different medicines at different times, I came up with this little system to keep me sane. Inspired by hospital charts, I made my own little chart that I thought you might find useful too. Just as a side note, something else that keeps me sane is grabbing a little basket and making sure everything I need to tend the ill is in there - medications, medicine cups/syringes/spoons, lozenges, Vicks vaporub, thermometer, hand sanitiser etc. I keep it on the kitchen counter until no longer needed. It also helps if my hubby and I are taking shifts through the night - we don't have to wake up the other to find out which child had which medicine at what time. Works for me!
I am having trouble with Scribd for my document sharing so I am going to trial sharing this with Google Docs in the meantime. Let me know if you have any problems and I will send you the original Word document.
