Last Sunday, Ava woke up complaining about her head hurting. With a little Tylenol for the headache, all was well and off we went to church. But by the time service was over it was evident that Ava did not feel well so we came back home. By one she was running a fever. Carli's class at school had been passing around Strep. Since Ava has had Strep so much, we figured she was exposed via Carli even though Carli never was sick.
True to past experiences, Carli started complaining of a headache on Friday night. She woke us up on Saturday morning with fever and a headache. By the time eight rolled around, her fever was back up and her stomach was not doing so well. We got in to see a pediatrician instead of going to urgent care. I was hopeful that just calling in and requesting meds would work since it was obvious she had Strep too but alas they wanted my $100 to run the test and confirm. So we spent Saturday morning at the doc with a 102 fever and throwing up. Turns out a prego momma does not handle vomit as well as she could when she was not prego!
Carli ended up on amoxicillin which doesn't taste too bad but we have to give it to her twice a day for 10 days. Try explaining that unfairness to a sick six year old!
