Strep Throat

Connor was already down with Influenza A and B and we kept a close eye on him over the weekend. He acted pretty normal as long as we kept up on ibuprofen and acetaminophen and we were hoping he was getting better. On Monday, he was complaining that his throat hurt and I peeked inside and saw big white sores in the back of his throat. It was late in the day, so we took him to the minute clinic. The nurse practitioner initially told us that his sore throat was probably just a symptom of the flu, but when she peeked in his mouth, she was pretty surprised and said it definitely looked like strep. A strep test later and it was confirmed that he had strep. We started him on antibiotics that night and by Wednesday he was back to normal.

It's Saturday now and he's doing just fine. Glad our little man is healthy again. He was very stoic about it and hardly complained except when he had to drink the yucky medicine.
