Uh oh......

*UPDATE*

So we all went to the doctor today and turns out it's not strep after all. Instead, it's a nasty virus that has similar symptoms to strep. I was actually REALLY hoping it would be strep, because then we could get on those fun antibiotics and start feeling better. Now we all have to suffer for as long as this virus hangs around, which the doctor said could be up to two weeks!! Oh, I am soooooo pissed about that!

Anyway, I have to try and make it to the school tomorrow to study before our big lab test on Monday. And, by the way, I got 97 points out of 100 on our first big lecture test last week!! Woo hoo!! So I need to keep the momentum going so I can get another A! Kara can't go to school sick like this (they even sent a letter home to us begging us to keep sick kids home), so I hope Tim can stay home with the sickies while I study muscles on cadavers.

This can't be good.

It looks like we all have strep throat!

Kara's preschool informed us last week that the kids had been exposed to strep. She was a little under the weather, but seemed OK overall.

This morning, I checked her throat for the first time because she was complaining of it being sore and was shocked. There are big white patches everywhere! Then I looked down my throat in the mirror. I have white spots on the back of my throat, too! Although I don't have tonsils anymore and my throat isn't as sore as it could be (I had strep a lot as a child, and it was painful!!). Matty is still asleep, so we can't check him, but Tim's throat is very sore too.

Well, this would explain why I am still feeling crappy. We are trying to get appointments with the doctor today, but I have to wait until they open in about 30 minutes. This really sucks!!
