strep...

katherine hasn't been feeling well since the week school let out for the holidays. i actually took her to the doctor for the first time friday (two weeks ago) with fever, chills, and body aches. that went on for a week.

finally, she started feeling a little better...

well, yesterday she awoke with white patches all over her tonsils. so, i made another appointment with the doctor, and we returned. the nurse practitioner took one look at her throat and deduced that katherine either had strep throat or mononucleosis and that she wanted me to take katherine to the hospital lab for blood work.

that we did.

at about 4 yesterday afternoon, i received a call saying that she definitely has strep throat, but may also be at the onset of mono...

all this to say that life on the lane is pretty quiet again today.

i have a sick baby girl and a sleepy puppy.



i hope you and yours are well and that mine will be soon:)

love and God blessings,
dani xx

Good thing that Maggie is keeping her company. So sweet.

I hope Katherine feels better soon. She sure hasn't been able to enjoy her Christmas holiday fully, has she?

Love,

Oh I hope she feels better soon. Strep is no fun for sure.

We're all sick at my house too. What a way to start the new year huh!?!

Here's wishing Katherine to be well soon.

That is so sad that Katherine hasn't been able to fully enjoy her Christmas break. Strep throat is the worst.
Shawn and I are both getting sick too. The thing about it that bothers me is how sloooowly it's coming on. I've been feeling not quite right for more than a week now, and for the last three days it just keeps getting worse. I wish we could just get full fledged sick, have it for a few days and then get over it. My thoughts will be with Katherine and also with you my friend. I hope the good health fairy will come visit your family.

Poor thing--Hope she gets better soon! Thank goodness it;s not mono. I've had that and when you get mono you have it forever and it can come back in times of stress--got that too :(
Get well wishes!

Bren's Life said...

Oh poor thing. I hope she feels better soon... Yuck! I don't think I have ever had strep & either have my kids. Knock on wood...

Lucy said...

Dani, what a nasty way to spend her holidays, felling so yuk. I hope your poor darling Katherine picks up quickly now that she has been diagnosed and hopfully taking her medication. Maggie is so sweet to keep her company. Wishing the best for Katherins and a hug from me please.
Love and hugs

Oh Dani I am so sorry to hear that your Katherine is so unwell. I hope that she gets better very quickly. That is no way to start a new year.

Lots of love

Amanda said...

That's a shame ~ i hope she is all better soon. Is strep and mono throat the same as tonsillitis? I got my tonsils out just over a year ago so i can understand how bad Katherine is feeling.
Sending a big hug to Katherine and that cute little Maggie too!

I sure hope that she begins to feel better. Poor thing. Sending lots of "hope you get better super quick" thoughts from Missouri to Katherine.

Christy said...

Oh no! I am sorry your baby girl is feeling so bad. I hope she is back to normal soon.

The Adventures of Maverick & the Mrs. said...

Aw. I hope she feels better soon! I've had mono before, and wouldn't wish it on anyone. I've missed your blog--I was WAY behind on blogging! Happy 2009!

Molly's Mellow Moments said...

Ooooh Dani, Poor Katherine - it's certainly not a good time of the year for all these nasty bugs
One thing's for sure, CKC's are the perfect companian for a poorly patient. Actually, I don't think they need any excuse to cuddle down under the warmest duvet do they?!
Keep warm all of you, and look after yourselves.

I hope your Katherine gets better real soon. It sucks to be sick. I'm currently either getting over something or it's just starting. I'd like to think I'm getting over it.

Missy said...

Thanks for stopping by! I am actually not from Corbin, but south of there. I do know several people from Corbin, but not your former pastor! Hope you all are feeling better!

Kellan said...

Jenn said...

Oh yuck! I hope she's feeling better now.

Cuddling with sweet Maggie I'm sure was some good medicine!
