Strep Throat #springbreak2019

So, yesterday my mom called me while I was at a retirement party at school to tell me Henry had a 102 fever and she was going to give him a Tylenol. I was a little alarmed because Henry hasn’t ever had a really high fever.

Then my mom called me an hour later, after the Tylenol, his temperature was now 103. So, I called the doctor’s office and went to my mom’s to find him like this.

He was so lethargic and sad looking. They got him in at the doctor’s office right away. He was so brave at the appointment and insisted on sitting up.

His fever was 102.9 at the office, so they gave him a dose of Motrin. Within the hour I could tell his fever was reducing. He was talkative again and so much less lethargic. They tested him for strep and it was positive. She said it came up positive almost immediately.

So… we are drinking the pink medicine for 10 days, two times a day.

He looks a lot better today, but still has sick eyes.

I am having a slow morning but I have lots of plans of cleaning stuff out today and getting rid of clutter.

I already put my 8 bags of too big clothes in my trunk to take to Goodwill.
