Sick Kid

After our trip to Silver Dollar City where both kids ended up being sick, we took Audrey to the doctor on Monday and she was diagnosed with strep throat. She missed Monday and Tuesday, but since she didn't have any fever, she went to school Wednesday to turn in her projects and get her homework. I had her stay at home from church last night because I thought she needed the rest.

When she went to bed last night, she was coughing pretty bad. This morning at 2, she said she woke up pretty sick. She finally made it into our bedroom at 4:45 this morning burning up with 105 fever! Sally ran and got her some ibuprofen and I got some wet rags and began to try to get the fever down. Finally, after about 30 minutes, it was down to 102. We all eventually fell back to sleep.

When we got up this morning, her temperature was back to normal and she said she didn't hurt like she did last night. Sally called her doctor and he is considering prescribing a different antibiotic.

Meanwhile, she'll be spending another day at home.
