So, I'm pretty sure me and my two little boys (1 and 4) have strep throat. I meet 4 out of 5 of the "criteria" for it and the boys are 5 for 5.
I was just going to let it run it's course and only get anti-biotics if we ran into complications, but I've been doing some reading and it seems that without treatment we can still be contagious for 2-3 weeks. Now, 2 weeks out from thanksgiving and cooking dinner for my elderly grandmother... that's not a good thing!
So, I figured I'd cave and go see the doctor... but me and the boys have different doctors... different medical groups, even. Can just one of them give us all meds? Obviously if one of us have it, we all do... so it wouldn't seem we'd need multiple tests. I just *really* don't feel like spending all day traveling around to see different doctors, wait in different lobbies, be exposed to that many more germs if we can just see one. Am I just dreaming? ha!
