Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

So Ollie got sick Monday afternoon, by Tuesday he was really sick so I took him to the ped with one swipe we found out he had strep. While he napped that day I started to pack, I never pack that early before a trip so I must have known something was up. I prayed that if I were going to get strep let it be Wed so I’m over it by Friday and boy did God answer that prayer. I was knocked on my butt! High fever, body aches and the worse sore throat ever! I had to take Andi and
Ollie with me to Urgent Care and I was sure enough strep positive as well. Got antibiotics and was miserable that day. It was awful! At 3pm I went to bed. Oliver was napping and Lily was with her care giver and Andrew picked up Andi from pre k. I went to bed at 3pm and didn’t get out of bed until 7am. Seriously! Thank God for Andrew and Sharon (L’s care giver) I couldn’t have done that with out them. I’m still not so great, but fever is gone. My throat is still on fire, but I’m much more functional today so I know I’ll be ok to travel tomorrow. One of Andi’s classmates’s mom offered to take her to the last day of school party so I am just resting at home while Oliver gets into everything. Oh well its safe here for him to do so. I can’t count the times I’ve had strep, overwhelming amount of times and it is awful every.single.time. I read that it is most common in kids and teens. So I guess with strep and acne I might as well pretend I’m 15. Anyway, if anyone wants to send a prayer this way. I still have so much to do and no energy to do anything. And I’m starving. I haven’t eaten since Tuesday night so that might be why I have no energy, but I can’t eat because my throat is on fire! Ugh ok io hate when other people complain so I will stop. I just wanted to check in before I head out!

    Reagan had strep multiple times in January and she was completely and totally miserable with it! Wouldn't it figure this would come on just as you're about to leave!?!? I'm so jealous…I would LOVE to get away and go to a conference (that's the scientist in me) but I just don't trust anyone yet enough to leave Reagan. Hope you have a great time, meet a lot of people, and learn a lot!
