Strep throat

Ryanna woke up twice Saturday night with the worst sore throat ever. On Sunday she couldn't talk normal, had a fever, chills, aches etc.. when I looked at her throat I couldn't see it very well so I just gave her tylenol every 4 hours. I asked her if she wanted to go to the doctor tommorow and she said "NO TODAY." By the time I got home from church and looked at it again it was bad. I mean really bad. It had red blood looking spots, her tonsils were swollen. She said it hurt to cough, sneeze, swollow the whole nine yards. I called Mareah she is the expert when it comes to strep and she said she thought from the diagnosis it was strep and I should get her into a doctor right away. So I headed down to the Instacare in S.L. Luckily no one was there except for us ( I didn't think that happened) so they swabbed her throat and it was all bloody. The results came back... POSITIVE! That's what I get for bragging to everyone that my kids have never had strep (in my face) So since she is still contagious for 24 hrs she will be staying home from school tommorow. I just hope the boys don't get it (knock on wood) Can you imagine Stratton with it?
