sun mar 4- skip swimming- kids sick. to dr, jakob maybe strep, internet store meeting. jakob face pic, henri sleep
We skipped swimming this morning because of the kids’ fevers last night. I wasn’t sure if it was worth bringing them to the doctor, and then I took a closer look at Jakob’s face, and saw this rash.
It wasn’t raised, or itchy, but bothered me, so we called up and got both kids an appointment at 10:30. Turns out that Jakob’s fever and rash could be signs of strep. Couple them with the fact that he had a very red throat, and even though he wasn’t complaining of it, he had to do a strep test. (Weird that symptoms of strep are so different in kids vs adults!) Henri only had his fever with a runny nose, so they said he probably just had a virus, and if he started coughing again I could give him his puffers before bringing him back in. Though, both kids would have to go back if they still had fevers in 3 days.
The lab, unfortunately, was closed for the weekend, so we’d have to come back the next morning for the strep test. Wonderful.
For 2 sick kids, they were in great spirits, and you couldn’t tell from their attitudes that they were sick at all. At least- until bed time. They both napped in the afternoon, and then when bedtime hit they crashed again.
Henri fell asleep so fast that he never even moved after I tucked him in- just put his hands under his cheek like this and fell right asleep. 😦 Little sweetie!
