Streptococci Is In Da House

Ugh! Tis the season I guess,but I was sure hoping we could escape it this year.My kids always whine over sore throats,but if I don't see pus I'm generally not to alarmed.Allyson has been complaining a bit of a sore throat,but she had a swab two weeks ago or so when she had her bladder infection.Well this morning I looked in and YIKES!!!!!!!!!!! there was no pus,but there was also barely an opening for food to go down,so off we went to the hospital.The strep test was definitely positive this time,and then the nurse told me that the on-call Dr. would be in at 3.......ah, I wasn't waiting 5 hrs to see the Dr.Thankfully my Dr. who I love to pieces was there visiting his sick wife,so we snagged him and he took her in right away,examined her and like always had a little teaching lesson on the complications of strep.I aced the test and he said that I should be sitting behind the desk.I thanked him over and over again, and off we went to the pharmacy.

Notice off to the side I have a new little blinkie.This one is advertising Stephanie Hart's little Etsy shop.She is a local talented scrapper who makes the cutest buttons and embellishments from polymer clay.Make sure to stop by her shop as she is doing a give away and has some great things to purchase....

I hope to scrap some this weekend and perhaps Monday and Tuesday while one child is home sick and the wild one is at school.....crossing my fingers.

Next weekend I will be taking part in the "Oh The Places We'll Go Crop" going on over at Skrapnchat.Why not drop by and have some scrappy fun with me and like a gazillion friends.
