Well, it was bound to happen.
We've spent the entire school year healthy, but apparently it's Cody's turn.
Two weeks ago, he had a nasty cough that was the result of an ear infection. He was running a temperature and wasn't able to rest, so the doc prescribed an antibiotic and he bounced back pretty quickly.
On Sunday, we finished the last of his medicine. Yesterday, in his backpack, a note came home letting us know that cases of strep had been reported in the school. I didn't really think much of it until last night, when Cody woke up complaining of a sore throat.
This morning, he had a fever, so I immediately took him to the doctor to have them do a culture. My mommy's instincts (both mine and my mom's!) were correct: He has strep.
I'm so thankful to have caught it early, since an hour ago, he was running a 102 degree temp and looking at me with tired, red eyes.
He is currently snoozing away on the couch. Poor baby!
