Germs, they are everywhere all the time and they have sent this family just a little more chaos, like we really needed that right now.
We have had kids with fevers, sore throats, and headaches so after another one came home from school early we took the entire crew, except Hanna, but including two PCAs who are here almost every day and got throat cultures. There was one positive for Strep in the rapid test and the results were the same for the twenty-four hour version. That one test landed all of us on antibiotics for the next two weeks. We needed to treat everyone because some of our kids do not communicate well when they are sick and because we do not need Hanna to get strep right now. She is one of those who would not tell us that she was not feeling well, because, well then you just might have to do something about it.
We have not had this Strep garbage here since November 2009.
