Well, what can I say? This week has been dominated by strep throat (throat infection to us UK people). All three kids, at the same time, have strep.
That’s been fun… although to be fair, only the 8yo has really been suffering. And, he was miserable, really miserable. The other two seem to have escaped relatively symptom free.
I felt so awful for the 8yo though, he had every symptom going; from sore throat to tiredness to fever to vomiting. He didn’t eat for a full two days. Isn’t it just the worst thing, to see your child suffer? I don’t think he’s ever been ill for so long before and it was horrible to watch. I would have done anything to make him feel better.
But, what with trips to the doctor, days off school, tired and grumpy (and bored) children and a fridge full of antibiotics; I have to say, it’s been a long week.
Here’s to an illness free week next week…
How has your week been, what would your word of the week be?
