Right now the healthy people are winning in our house. Three of us ... Kyle, Payton and I. The other two ... not so much.
Yesterday Mason woke up with a headache, sore throat and a massive fever ... upwards of 103.1. I alternated Tylenol and Motrin throughout the day and he was acting fine. He wanted to play Wii, go outside to play in the snow, etc.
Riight. Probably gonna let ya go outside right about now.
I really wasn't sure how badly his throat hurt ... he just kept telling me, "Just a little bit." I figured I would let it ride for awhile and see how he did. We got through the day, however last night he slept so hard and had drank so much fluid that he wet the bed ... which he never does -- I think this is only the second time.
And then today I found out that Mason's little neighbor friend that he played with over the weekend had strep. Thanks neighbor!
So in to the doctor we went. Diagnosis ---> strep throat.
We came home and I noticed that Nika seemed to be declining quickly. She was feverish, was drooling and refused to eat. Not like her ... at all.
So off to Urgent Care we went. Diagnosis ---> strep throat.
To make matters worse, Nika started vomiting after we put her to bed. I'm not sure if the antibiotic made her sick ... or if she has a stomach bug on top of the strep.
Fun times in our house ... anyone want to come visit?
Here's to hoping the score remains 3 to 2.
