It's Strep

So we took Liam to the doctor today since the fever didn't go away and he started crying over his sore throat. I thought he probably had strep so we took him in and got confirmation. He was really good for the doctor and was happy to get some new medicine that will make this yuck go away.

Last night he was up 6 times with either weird dreams or pain or both. I figure it will be the same tonight. He has already woken once with gas cramps and weird dreams... the throat pain was secondary on that round. I won't be going to work tomorrow since he's still contagious. Poor kid. I had strep for the first time just about 6 months ago and I've never known your throat could hurt so severely. I hope he never gets this again.

I'm sorry he has to go through this, strep really isn't fun, especially for little ones! But I'm glad you guys found out what it was and are on the path to being rid of it! Here's to a quick recovery!

Derrick hallucinates when he has strep. Dr. said it is pandas. Hope he feels better soon.
