Morgan Kate has been home for the past three days suffering from some sort of viral infection. One that brings high fever and ulcers all over her throat. My poor baby.
As long as she can have her purple and red medicine (Motrin and Tylenol) she's a happy camper. She won't eat much because it hurts to swallow. Last night I even offered her ice cream for dinner and she didn't want it. No worries though, she is drinking lots and lots of cold milk. Matter of fact, that is all she will drink. This morning she did request yogurt, so we made a mad dash to Chick-fil-A for a yogurt parfait and fruit. Thank goodness for Chick-fil-A.
I'm so ready for her to feel better. We are waiting on a throat culture to come back. Dr. G thought she may have strep because her throat looked so awful, but the test they do in the office came back negative. The culture they send off is still off and we won't know the results until late this afternoon or tomorrow morning. If it is strep then they will start treating it with an antibiotic. Until then, we are just treating it with purple and red meds, lots of snuggles and as many popsicles as she can eat.
