I have been battling a sore throat for some time now, so when Makenzie complained this morning about a sore throat, I had to take a look. What I could see of her throat was red and swollen. So I got on the phone and called the pediatrician's office and they sent her for a throat culture at the lab.
It took longer for us to get Makenzie to cooperate for the swabbing of her throat than it took for the test to come back positive. So we took the note to the doctor and left with a script for antibiotics.
I guess it's now time for me to call my doctor and get an appointment too. :(
UPDATE: I went to the doctor and yes, I too have strep. I hope the rest of the family stays well.
