Que me se han puesto enfermas

The word puesto kills me at times. It seems like it has a different meaning everytime I see it.

que me se han puesto enfermas

Literally means that several people have placed/posted themselves (in the position) of being sick.

It's one of those phrases you just have to understand what it means as I do not think there is an equivalent in English, or I cannot think of one right now.

Que se me han puesto enfermas = They have become ill.

"Me" is an emphasis, as if the sick girls had done that "to me".

It's known as an ethic dative, in case Chileno was wondering.

I agree about poner; very slippery verb, quedar is another, and llevar gets interesting too... Gymnastics for my old brain
