Eddie has strep

We took Eddie to the doctor yesterday and it turns out that he has strep. I guess with strep, you don't need to have a sore throat nor any throat involvement at all. Eddie's strep manifested as a fever and he had little red bumps on the chest and the back. He also had a lack of appetite.

So, with antibiotics, Eddie is on the mend and should be able to go back to school. I think he's ready . . . and I'm just happy to see him giggling and laughing again!

Awwww. Poor guy. Glad you found out what it was and that its being dealt with. Hate it when the kids are sick. You feel so helpless.

Yeah, you do feel helpless. Luckily, he's on the mend now. His appetite is finally returning!
