So it Wasn't the Vaccine After All...

An Update:
We returned from the doctor a few hours ago where they did a strep culture (which came back negative). He then took a two hour nap and his fever is back in the 102 range (oh joy). They presume he has caught some sort of virus because his throat is red and sore and he's achy. This is unrelated to the vaccine because we had been in a week ago having his glands checked because they were a little swollen. Turns out he's been fighting whatever this is for quite some time and it finally "got" him. I am thankful it's not strep and so for now, we are pumping him up with tylenol, fluids, rest, and his all-natural PRObiotics. Please pray he's well soon and that Caden stays well...I hate when my little guys don't feel good! Thank you!

FYI: This is how Mark would be prior to Hand Foot Mouth Disease. Google it. It may not be, but just an idea!

Oooo!! I am a Probiotic girl too!! My kids LIVE on LifeStart. My daughter had 3 back to back ear infections when my son was born and we couldn't shake it. They wanted tubes, I wanted no tubes! After much prayer and a little angel (PHD Doctor) He sent my way, WE got HC on LifeStart probiotics by Natren and within 3 days - SHE WAS WELL!! Praise God!! JB has been on it since about 6 weeks old and he is NEVER SICK! HC never has been sick since either!! It is the right choice!! I will pray and I hope he recovers soon! I always increase their dose if they act even a little like they don't feel good!! Another mom after my own heart!! I am thrilled to know another PRObiotic mom!!

have a good day!!

Happi, praying for both your boys!!! That the Lord heals them. Our little Corinn, 7, had her glands swell last winter and a high fever that came and went for over a month. I heard is was going around then... some strange virus. I'd love to hear about these Probiotics! And I pray they work for Cody.

Hey girl! Hope the little one is feeling better soon!

Just wanted to let you know that Hebron, KY is way far from me... too bad! Would have loved to meet your sis!

Have a great day!

I hope he feels better soon and that you can figure out what is going on with him.
