So, we went to the doctor...

It is FECKING STREP.

We went in to have her looked at before the weekend and the pediatrician did a strep swap just in case. It was positive. She got an antibiotic shot, because she refuses oral meds and then starts refusing anything we offer orally out of distrust. When BubTar had the antibiotic shot, it took several days to help him feel better, so having the medication in her system does not mean we are out of the woods. What woods, you ask? These woods. I hope that she continues to drink, because that is where we get into trouble. I hope it doesn't get that far this time. I think we caught it early, which is good.

But damn, right?

Our week:

Monday: Holiday
Tuesday: Pediatrician for BubTar's rash
Wednesday: Audiologist for KayTar's failed ABR
Thursday: No appointments, high fever
Friday: Pediatrician for KayTar's fever.

Oh, and last Friday we were at the pediatrician's for KayTar's well-check and immunizations.

Ack. I think we've filled our quota for a while. At least, I hope we have.

I've seen strep look just like what BubTar had a few posts back, but since the strep test came back neg I figured it was right.

Guess how I learned strep can look like a rash? I was around a baby/toddler for a week, who had a little heat rash on her face. Babies get lots of kisses.... I got the one and only case of strep I've ever had and I wanted to DIE for about two weeks.

Hope all start feeling better soon!

Noooo! So sorry and poor Kaytar! It's good she's being treated though. Good luck and feel better, all of you!

Kristin said...

I'm sorry. What a week! What a month, actually!

Better not let AJ see those germies...I think she likes a few of them in particular. :)

ACK is right!!! I'm so sorry!!!!
Also, your use of the word "fecking" made me snort with laughter. I LOVE THAT WORD.

Oh, shit. Strep. We've had some battles with strep around these parts, and more often than not, we've lost.

I HATE strep.

So sorry.
