First off, this morning I took Brianna and Lynae to the pediatrician to be retested for strep to be sure this THIRD round of antibiotics is working.
THEY ARE STREP FREE!!! YAY!! This is the first time in a month!
James and Micah both have run random fevers and had runny noses and we weren't sure what to do with them. Both were negative for strep on Wednesday, so we weren't sure what was up. Micah's ears were slightly infected, but there wasn't anything obviously wrong with James.
WELL, BOTH HAVE EAR INFECTIONS! I've never been so happy to see that a child has an ear infection BECAUSE....
It means that we are, without a doubt, officially, NOT CONTAGIOUS ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!! The ear infections caused the fevers and they should be cleared up quickly with drops (*I hope and pray!*). They both have ear tubes, so the infections are draining and easy to treat.
WOO HOO, can you FEEL the excitement?? LOL!
Tomorrow is our Step Up for Down Syndrome walk and if any of the kids were sick with anything that could be contagious, then we'd be splitting up and only the healthy ones going. Now, we can ALL GO!
Ok, Yes, I was yelling with all the capitals, but I've never been so excited as to see ear infections because it explains the fevers and means we are good to go! :) :)
