So my daughter came home on Friday just dragging. ALL she wanted to do was cuddle in my lap, which is NOT normal for her, especially when Grampa is home.
Well, that also happened to be the day my son had his well child check up. Thankfully, the doc was willing to squeeze her in as well. She was running a low-grade fever then, her tonsils were swollen, but the doc couldn't see any white spots. Her breath HAD been smelling foul all last week, even after brushing her teeth.
Doc gave me an Rx for amoxicillin and said if she got worse to go ahead and fill it. She got worse Friday night. Saturday morning I filled the Rx. He said it's most likely strep, but since i had her in so early, it was hard to tell.
She's almost back to normal here at home, but her appetite isn't quite back to normal. I just took her temperature and she's right at 99.9. Per the school district, if it's 100 or more I have to keep her home.
Sigh. I WANT to send her back, but not if she's not ready yet. This is one of those times when I almost wish I didn't try so hard to be responsible. Guess she'll be home with me again tomorrow. I'll recheck her temp in the morning, but I don't think she'll be ready to go back yet.
