Strep Stinks!

I have been in bed since Wednesday with Strep Throat! It is not fun. I used to get it all the time when I was young, but having it as an adult is much worse.
Eric has taken over as "mom" and dad. He has been cooking, bathing, and bedding all the kids, as I haven't been able to be around them. Today is the first day I have been outside of the bedroom during the day. We are going to Orlando, this week, for vacation and I am determined to keep the rest of my family healthy. I will be so disappointed if we aren't able to go.
Have you ever had strep throat? Share your stories.....

John-Thomas had it two years ago and threw up at the onset of it...didn't know until then that it was a symptom. I don't think I've ever had it. I think Stewart had it this year. Antiboitics are a very good thing. Get well soon

Hope you get to feeling better soon. Strep does stink. I waited to the last minute to buy a dress to wear to Lindsay's wedding and came down with strep 6 days before it. I hardly knew I was in the world for a few days. Scott had to take off work and take me to the Dr. It was horrible. I ended up wearing a dress Mom had bought me for Christmas to Lindsay's wedding and all worked out fine. Get well-missed you at church...

We have had our share of strep for sure. When Jimmy gets it, he gets better after 1 round of antibiotics, then he always gets it again!!!
Take ALL your antibiotics and I hope the kids stay well for your trip. I know you have been looking forward to it!!!

I have all the kids on antibiotics. Eric is the only one who isn't.
Emily and Lauren tested positive for Strep at the doctor today. My doctor wrote a script for Michael as well, just in case.....
