Strep Again?

I had hoped to use my few moments this morning to blog about our fantastic weekend, but instead, I'll just update to say that Bryce woke up with a fever, sore throat, and enlarged tonsils again this morning.  It was 3 weeks exactly since he was diagnosed with strep.  Yes, we finished the antibiotics but I think it's my fault.  I forgot to change his toothbrush.  I thought about it the first day of his antibiotics but realized it was too early to change it out.  Then, it completely slipped my mind.  Thankfully, Mondays are "Bertie Days" and since my parents see the same family doctor that we do, my mom offered to take him in if Dr. Q wanted to see him.  He did.  So my mom was dropping Caroline off at school and then running down the road to Dr. Q's.  It's got to be strep again.  No other symptoms that make it cold-like and it hit him out of nowhere.  I can't believe I forgot the toothbrush especially after dealing with it so much myself.

I am so appreciative of my mom taking him.  Aside from the fact that he's being seen quickly and hopefully on antibiotics quickly.  I have a busy day at work today meeting with the Registrar and my new supervisor and then lunch with my supervisor to talk more details of my changeover.  Any other day, no big deal.  But today, a very big deal.  Thank you soooooo much, mom!!!  I will be buying a LOT of toothbrushes to keep in my linen closet now.

Bummer for Bryce, but at least strep is not a messy thing to deal with, so Bertie shouldn't have it too bad.
Good luck today!
