It's been one of those weeks. One of those long weeks.
It all started last Thursday evening. Ryan started to cry before bed and said his throat hurt. I took one look and knew it was strep. Off to the doctor on Friday. Diagnosis, strep, possible ear infection, possible tonsillitis. Antibiotics prescribed for 10 days.
Monday morning, I woke up feeling terrible. Headache, body ache sore throat, ears popping.
Tuesday evening was Matthew's turn.
Wednesday repeat at doctors with Matthew. Prescribed antibiotics for 10 days.
Thursday evening. Both boys feeling great...plan to go to school on Friday. I plan to drop the boys off, go home and sleep. I still feel awful.
Friday morning, Ryan comes down and says "Mommy I'm itchy" I look up and see this.
I gave him some Benedryl and called the school to let them know he will be away today. We are now waiting for his appointment at the doctor's office and the rash/hives are getting worse even with the Benedryl. And his throat is getting itchy.
Maybe I can get some sleep tomorrow.
