Well it only took one week of school for the strep monster to strike. Poor Caroline went down like a champ on Sunday--sore throat, throwing up, headache, and fever. She is recovering now after a traumatic throat swab at the ped's office yesterday and is enjoying being pampered and watching endless episodes of Disney tween shows on Netflix from the couch bed.
I have quit my job as a baker to become her personal nurse and have her on a steady rotation of antibiotics, yogurt, grits (the sick kid wants what the sick kid wants), ice water, motrin, tylenol, probiotics, and of course, diet coke.
Hopefully she will go back to school tomorrow, but she is an easy, sweet, and grateful patient, so it's not so bad having her around.
(Except for the fact that she feels lousy.)
