And, today's disease is...

Strep Throat! The nurse laughed at how excited we got when she told us, but when she gave us the results of the other test, she understood why we'd prefer this. She's feeling better and we just got back from the pharmacy with the antibiotics and she's had her first dose. Healing will now begin.

I tried to work from home today, but that darn work laptop still wouldn't cooperate. There is apparently too much wrong with it and I don't know when they'll get around to replacing this one. It took 2 weeks to get it going as good as it is and I shudder to think what I'm in for next.

Since I couldn't work, I took the opportunity to sew. I've made quite a few arc sections today. Every color combination that's remotely close to orange and gray. I'll try to post some pics after I sew with my mentor tomorrow. For now, I'm going to take a little break and catch up on some blogs. Y'all take care and I'll let you know how tomorrow goes. Lane

Oh Lane. I'm so glad it's Strep Throat. She'll be feeling better within 48 hours of starting the antibiotics if not sooner. Kids sure can be a worry can't they.

It is hard to imagine being excited about Strep Throat!! But I felt sure that is what it was.....it will be much easier to recover from that!! Have a great weekend...I just hope I find time to do some sewing....

Hi Lane, I'm glad it is strep. Here's a tip the doctor gave me. About 48 hours after starting the antibiotic, throw away her toothbrush and get a new one. My son Corey was reinfecting himself and ended up getting his tonsils out a couple of weeks before this study came out of the AMA. It really did make sense when I thought about it. Hope she is feeling much better soon!!

I had strep myself just a couple weeks ago. Glad it is that and not mono, because she'll be back to normal in no time. Enjoy your day of sewing with your mentor.

Hi Lane, I am so glad to hear that you have got to the bottom of that fever. The poor thing must feel yuck at the moment. I am not sure what disease is Mono but at a guess is it Glandular fever? Anyhow, I am glad she has something that can be treated fast. Take care, and post more pictures of those arcs! Sam xoxox

Should the throat issue raise its ugly head ever again, strep has a very particular smell that mono does not. My granddaughter was plagued with strep infections when she was little. She would be fine one minute and so sick the next. Yes, Quilter, mono is glandular fever.
