Well, it's official... Shepherd has Strep Throat.

Over the weekend, while we were at the wedding, he developed a fever with little other symptoms. By the time we got home on Sunday, he was refusing to drink anything, and hardly eating. A quick trip to the doctor's this morning revealed he had strep, which according to my doctor, "Is unusual in children under 1". Which, you know, is VERY reassuring. I have no idea where he got it (one could guess the germ-pit play area at the local mall with the stupid parents letting their 8 year olds run loose in the TODDLER PLAY AREA...) but whatever...

Either way, Shepherd is not his usual self, but this afternoon, seems to be doing better. He's been napping now for about an hour and a half, allowing me some much needed rest and catching up on blogs. I can't seem to get anything done lately, as I'm always tired, and we've been so busy with traveling for Christmas, hosting family for New Years, traveling again for weddings, and finally, we're back here... and settling in, with Strep.


Strep.... what am I gonna do???

Strep throat sucks. Poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon, and I doubly hope you don't get it!

That's a major bummer, to say the least. Get well soon, Shepherd!
