- Girl #2 has a fever of 100.7, strep test comes back +. Ugh.
- Boy #1 has a fever of 100.7. the nurse checks again 100.7, strep test comes back -, but sending in to be cultured. uuuhhh? He is feeling great by the next day and up to his usual teasing and other mischievousness. Not sick anymore. YAY!!!
- Boy #2 has a fever of 100.8, strep test comes back -, being cultured but has an ear infection, so needs drops. We think that his ear possibly burst at an earlier time and turned disqustingly black inside his ear drum area.
Okay, so I have half my family sick, the other half bored out-of-their-minds-because-no-one-is-going-anywhere-to-infect-other-people-because-mom-said-so. Including me at this point. We go into the rest of the week with Stephen finally getting better by Friday evening, the other two are feeling okay, but still no one is going anywhere to disrupt other people's lives. That's just not fair to other people. Especially the ones I know and see. Their kids don't give crap to mine. I'm just trying to help everyone out.
So now we come to Sunday evening, the kids are going to bed and Girl #1 starts crying, and crying, and complaining about her ear. She has been stuffy for about a week. I figured why not take her to the doctor seems as she's been left out. She has an ear infection, which-if you didn't know- if you put heat on the ear, it's possible to have some fluid drain out of the ear and onto the heat pad you, as mom, have set up for her. We live and we learn.
So, I am very happy to say that we are all on the mend and expect to be leaving the house by Thursday or Friday to get out! I am also running a 5k on Saturday, but haven't been running for two weeks due to the above mentioned crap. I will write about the run after it has passed. We'll see how I do.
