In the past 24 hours, 3 of us have been diagnosed with strep. This morning N's little brother was running an 104.5 degree temperature and we were quite concerned. Now, all of us are on antibiotics including N. N, actually, tested negative for strep -- though he has all of the symptoms. But thankfully, they put him on antibiotics anyway for a bad sinus infection. T never gets strep, go figure. So hopefully he stays well. Regardless, we should all get better soon.
The strep brings up some interesting questions. Has N's relapse the past few days been tied to getting sick? He confessed to me that he has been secretly weighing himself. I'm pleased that he told me, but I'm doubly concerned that some "sneakiness" has started. I'm eager to watch and see if the antibiotics (a z-pack) change anything.
