Horse & Chickie Fun

Make sure to find Edmund in all these pics. He was fearless when it came to these horses. I swear he would have jumped on their backs if I'd let him.

Second Round of Antibiotics

Can't believe I still feel like crude two weeks later. Sore throat popped back up again and went to the doc. Red throat and sinus issues means more antibiotics. I'm believing these drugs will work thoroughly and quickly. We're having Edmund's Birthday party on Sunday. Christian has been an amazing husband and "Mr. Mom" through all of this. Thank you Honey!

I feel like I'm writing my sister's blog. I got my tonsils out when I was 17 years old. I had chronic cases of strep throat for about two years. Although the recovery of the surgery was horrible, it was totally worth it!

So I haven't had strep or barely even a sore throat in 18 years and then two days ago a really bad sore throat starts to come on. Then a low grade fever. Then a fever of 102 degrees. I was talking to my sister and told her that it feels reminiscent of strep and she thought it could be psychological, since I knew that her son, who just had his tonsils out, got strep recently. I agreed with her and just thought it was a bad cold.

I had always thought I couldn't get strep because there weren't any tonsils for the bacteria to grab on to. So it does happen, but is very uncommon. Well, when the fever wouldn't go away I decided to go in to the doctor. I have two small children and if I had strep the chances are they do as well.

So the doctor comes in with a face mask and I knew right away that my strep test came back positive. Then I went immediately home and got the kiddos and hubby to return with me to Urgent Care. Evie has strep, but Edmund does not. Weird???? I don't understand how one got it and not the other? Anyhow, Evie has been battling symptoms all week, but nothing that would slow her down. How can we have the same infection and I can barely get off the couch or feed myself and she is still bouncing of the walls??? Don't get it... Anyhow, I'm glad she feels good.

Life is back to normal

Sorry no pics in a while. I'll try and work on that this week. Hubby's back and we are in the swing of normal life again.
All in all the 10 days of being a single Stay-at-Home Mother was not too bad. The beginning was great and the end was just holding on, but we made it through and are so happy Christian's back!
