Well, Lil' Chris got Strep Throat for the first time last week ;( It started Sunday night with a sore throat. Monday morning(9/17/12) at 7:15am, he walked into our room and started throwing up in our doorway...yeah...we thought it was pretty gross too!
He threw up off and on the whole day and wouldn't eat, saying his throat hurt, his belly, and his head hurt. His fever got up to 100.2 and we gave him kids advil, which helped take down the fever. He would drink water though, which was good so he wouldn't get dehydrated. By the end of the day, he couldn't even sit up to put his pj's on. He was just wiped out! I felt so bad for him, we almost took him to the hospital.
The next day, he threw up 2 more times, but then started eating a little bit, even though he was still complaining of a sore throat. On day 3, Wednesday, I took him to the pediatrician, b/c he still had a sore throat. The dr right away was like..."Oh yeah! He's got Strep Throat!" I never knew all these other symptom came with Strep...well, now I know for next time.
He was put on Amoxicillin for 10 days, 2tsp twice a day(he is almost done it now). This is the first time he has been on this. He is usually on stronger stuff. He took one dose that day and when he woke up on Thursday...his throat was all better and he was back to his normal self!! Praise God!! He still had to stay home from school tho, b/c you have to be on the medicine for 24 hours with Strep before returning to school. So he missed 4 days of school that week.
So that makes a total of 5 days he has missed since school started. Not bad, it could've been worse. I'm just glad he is all better!! His lil' cough seems to have gone away too! So maybe it was a blessing in disguise;-)
So far no one else has caught it in the house, but unfortunately Oma who
babysits woke up this morning sick:( Please pray she gets better soon and it doesn't spread anymore!
Here are a couple of old videos that my husband found of the kids playing after Christmas. Lil' Chris was 2 and Ayla was almost 1. It's hard to believe they were that little!! Lil' Chris always loved his guitar!! Ayla shaking her head at the end cracks me up:) Enjoy...
Thanks for your continued prayers,
Aaaahhhh! - It was one of the more important affirmations I've had in my ministry. It was 2011 and Shaina and I were going through a Church Planters Assessment to see ...
