These were really a lot harder than I thought they'd be. I got out the dictionary! I had to!

In other news, B had a rash and a sore throat (tonsils swollen a lot), and I thought, "Strep throat!" So first I googled "tonsils" and "rash" together and came up with a page that said Scarlett Fever. Larry stayed home with her, and I went on to school to teach. Lar took her to her doctor this afternoon, and yes, it was strep throat, and she will be home tomorrow. The bad thing is, I saw the rash on Sunday afternoon (after we'd been selling cookies---I thought it was just from the heat)!! I apologize to all who were in contact with her!! So she went to church and school on Monday. I am sorry all in her class! She is not miserable, but her throat has been bothering her, and she has had no fever. Her temp at the doctor was 98.1. She has been gargling salt water, which probably helped some. I am just really bad at looking at a throat and knowing what I am seeing. It should not be hard---it seems so easy for my Mom? But I look in there and just can't tell anything except the tonsils look big.

  • I hope B is feeling better soon. Sam had a bad rash (head to toe) with sore throat a few months ago amd it WAS Scarlett fever. I laughed because that sounds like an old timey disease, but my doctor said it is pretty common (I was just glad he did not have mono again!).

  • I have training! and lots of experience with looking at rashes and things

    Hope B is better. don't let her go back to school too soon it will just come back. Usually has a high fever. but your dad had it with no fever and the doctor said it could not possibly bestrep but guess what it was. Thank goodness for the newer strep tests that only take a few minutes,

    Loved your answers to the Scattergories meme! I played this past weekend and really struggled to come up with some answers to these. You did great!
