By all appearances, I have strep throat.

Monday night I came out of the bedroom after settling Sprout to sleep and pretty much collapsed.  Fever and chills.  Throat so sore that I wince when I swallow.  Tonsils the size of golf balls.

I'm feeling just slightly better today.  At least I've been able to eat and drink a little bit.

Maybe this is why I was feeling so run down?  Or, you know, maybe being run down just caught up to me.

(Jen and The Bean are also feeling under the weather, but thankfully Sprout seems unaffected so far.)


  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. Stress will definitely make a person more susceptible to illness...which I am sure you know. Relax as much as you can and try ginger and honey in your tea. (((HUGS)))

  2. I think that our bodies give us warnings to slow down. When we don't listen, they smack us in the face. It has happened to be a few times ;)

    I hope that you're feeling better soon :) And I agree with Amanda. I've been boiling a pot of fresh ginger on the stove. I then add some fresh lemon and raw honey to it.

    Oh and take a probiotic when you finish your antibiotics!

  3. Ah how crappy for you, sending lots of get quick vibes!

  4. ooh hope you all feel better. Hope that mama milk keeps Sprout healthy til this round passes. I'm gearing up for a brutal cold season here. I just know it's going to get us.
