Meghan and Kara kept crying if they coughed or swallowed, so we took them to the pediatricians office and sure enough, they have strep throat. Kara also has a viral rash and a cold sore on her tongue. Doesn't that sound awful? She has bloody mucous coming from her mouth (TMI), her sinuses drain into her mouth instead of to the back of her throat. The CNP said Kara likely had the blood from her tonsils. (No, none of them have had tonsillectomies).
Meghan is miserable; whining, moaning and grumpy, Kara is about the same with less whining. Julia has a sinus infection. Amanda still symptom free, but we got her a script for amoxicillin too, in case she does get it. Tom and I are still fighting the crud, neither of us feels great, especially with lack of sleep added to our list.
