Here We Go...Again

Matthew finished his antibiotics on Friday morning.

Saturday morning his throat was sore. By Saturday afternoon, he was fading fast, begging for a nap, then later, begging to go to bed.

Took him to the doctor's this morning, looks very much like strep again, or is that still? His ears are good, but his throat and tonsils are terrible. He is now on yet another round of antibiotics, this time for 10 days.

And finally, he is getting blood work. Testing him for mono, liver function and your regular CBC. Why liver function you ask? Well, for the first time, a doctor checked his abdomen and he is tender, especially around the liver. After reading, Mono can cause a swollen liver...but best to check it out and make sure.

And then there is the nodule on the back of his neck...she wants it watched and looked at again if this round of antibiotics doesn't make it go away.

I hope there is no more blogging on this topic, but I suspect there will be more to come.

Oh no! It's so hard when the little ones are sick. And the possibility of mono - ACK! I hope hope hope that it's not mono!!! But if it is at least you can start getting him treated. juliet had tonsilitis a while back and her fever was SOOOO high we had to take her to the ER. NOT fun!
