She had strep – knock me over with a feather

Seriously, I had NO clue, she showed ZERO of the regular symptoms. Her only symptoms were a mild cough a few days prior, and a weird rash that popped up on Sunday, which, since she had no fever or any complaints of a sore throat, we chalked up to an allergic reaction to something.  When […]

Germ farms

Yet another reason not to go to places like chuck e cheese……  they’re germ farms. The Kiddo apparently picked up a bug while there on Sunday, last night she threw up and had a mild fever.  Thankfully she slept thru the night without any further incidents, and she seems to be doing ok today so […]

She just can’t shake the strep virus

First, there was a sign on the door of her classroom, (a few weeks ago), noting a confirmed case of strep was in the pre-k room next door (they go through the same main door, pre-k is separated from preschool by a half-door). That weekend, she came down with a sore throat and spent a […]

How does that taste?

Yep.  Eating my words. *sigh* Topical antibiotic cream, 3 times a day, for 10 days, keep her home from school today and tomorrow, blah blah blah. Boy do I feel dumb. And a bit ticked off.  I called the daycare this morning to call the Kiddo out sick for the day.  I called them again […]

I may have to eat my words

Those blisters might NOT be caused by her pull-ups.  One more popped up on her leg, nowhere near where her pull-ups would be, and it was when she’d been in underwear for two straight days.  My MIL had looked up some pictures of a certain skin infection when she had the Kiddo overnight on Saturday, […]

We went anyway

…to the barbeque. Her aunt was ok with her coming over.  I just hope the Kiddo wasn’t still contagious in some way. She had fun though.  She really likes to go swimming, even though she doesn’t really swim yet. I had to step away for a moment, the Kiddo wanted to go to bed.  I […]

She feels better

I put her to bed with a fever, and this morning she doesn’t feel feverish at all.  The first thing she asked for was milk – but she is getting pedialyte instead – and to play Elmo on the computer.  We have this Sesame Street game for 1-3.5 year olds, and that is what she […]

Bucket in hand

So… I was wrong.  It IS a stomach bug. 😥 I’ve been following her around with a bucket since about 2pm after we got up from her nap. Poor kid.

Under the weather

Today she isn’t feeling very well.  Her throat is sore (I can see that it is a little bit red), and she keeps saying her tummy hurts.  She ate a few bites of pancakes so I don’t think it’s her stomach, but rather her lower intestines.  She’s already poo’d once, but I’m thinking she needs […]

Another breakout

It happened yesterday afternoon, after we picked her up from school. We picked her up, drove home and dropped off my husband and then went straight to the store for some groceries.  Within a couple of minutes of being there, she started to scratch at her sides, so I checked and sure enough, little patches […]
