Last Thursday #2 had a sore throat.
He stayed home from school on Friday, refused to swallow his saliva for like 48 hours straight, busted about 8 points in his basketball game on Saturday like a boss, and went back to school on Monday morning.
Thursday night I noticed that he maybe had an alien in his neck. Or a human baby. His glands were just that swollen. Like nothing I’d ever seen on this planet.
His neck was tender on the outside, but it felt fine on the inside.
After a quick trip to the doctor Friday morning it was determined that he had strep throat!
Almost a week with strep
sorry kids at school?!
Good one mom.
Sunday night, #3 spiked a fever.
I was on my game this time around (and he has just been so much sicker, read high fever, hives, a stiff neck and difficulty breathing thanks to massively swollen tonsils), I got him into the doctor and onto his antibiotics Monday evening.
2 days later he’s still not quite himself, but fortunately he was able to pull it together for a little family fun…

Here’s hoping the rest of us dodge this bacterial bullet.
