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.
