Mommy, I'm Itchy

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.

Oh my gosh!! What a sight! I hope you figure out the cause of that nasty rash.

You feel better too, Mom! I woke up yesterday with a "drippy throat" and feel a little under the weather myself. Not sure where THAT came from, but hoping it goes away soon. Hope you get a good nap today! :)

Oh my goodness you poor thing! You must be EXHAUSTED! And the poor sick kiddos :(.

I really hope everyone feels better fast and that you can have a day or two "off" to rest up yourself!

Thinking of you!!!

Poor Baby! Maybe it's Scarlet Fever...common with strep. My friend's son just had it. We just went thru hand/foot/mouth for the first time in this house, what a nightmare. Or maybe chicken pox? Hope everyone in your house starts feeling better!!! Jamie
