sick little man
3:45AM we finally got to a bed…

I was far too tired, disorientated and partially delusional at 6AM when the doctor finally came in to see Q.  8 hours later she took 3 minutes with us & swabbed for Strep. 
2 days later it came back positive.
Now my throat hurts…

**** UPDATE ****

Took Q to a 2nd hospital out in the country today. He woke up this morning even sicker than before. Within a couple hours they did blood work and it came back positive… for MONO.

That’s what I thought it was & told the 1st Doctor at the 1st hospital to test for it… but she didn’t.

Sooooo he’s doubly sick and off school for another week at least.

UGH! Gotta love FREE medical. Go Canada Go!

It’s Wordless Wednesday time again, link up and join the party!! (While you’re here, look around, I’ve got trips, cash and other great prizes listed, enter away and have fun!)
