Strep tease

Keaton (11) has had a very rough few days. She had her well-child check up last week and all was well; but, of course, this week she got sick...very sick.

The last four days she has been plagued with low grade fever, chills, tiredness and a terrible sore throat. A quick trip back to the doctor confirmed acute tonsillitis or strep throat and "the ugliest, puss-covered tonsils" he'd seen in a while.

Baby girl was sick.

She's been on a strong antibiotic since Thursday, stayed home from school on Friday, yet today she's had a fever of up to 103 and her tonsils are so swollen she feels like her throat is closing. On the bright side, her spirits are good, she's got a warm spot on the couch, a cup of crushed ice to suck on and a remote control.

She may decide to never get better.
