Should I laugh, cry or scream?????

I'm thinking that maybe I feel like screaming!!! Here we go again....Believe or not Christian has strep throat and a very high fever(thanks to his cousins who have passed it on). He is one sick little boy and the pediatrician gave him an antibiotic shot today instead of giving him oral medicine. He got the shot four hours ago and he is still whimpering and crying about it. The nurse told me it would hurt for a couple of days, but I had no idea it was going to hurt this bad. He can't even walk without crying. To top it off, Ryan is gone until Friday. I'm sure I was quite a pitiful sight to behold as I was carrying both Christian and McKenna out of the doctor's office, in the rain today. Needless to say this is totally stressing me out, especially since I've been up since 4am. McKenna has been having lots of belly pains lately, so she had a rough night last night. Thankfully McKenna has been awake a lot today so I am planning on having a good night with her. The other good news in all of this is that children under the age of two rarely (according to the doctor) get strep throat, so I'm not that worried about McKenna catching it. So please pray for my little guy. He's had more than his fair share of sickness lately.

Oh Judy. The only good news in this is that in 24 hours (or hopefully sooner), that antibiotic will have Christian feeling like a whole new person. And the doctor is right about McKenna - both of my boys had strep throat for the first time back in October. Callie was only a few months old, but she was totally fine. HANG in there - put a Thomas movie on for Christian and try to rest!

Good Heavens!! I am praying for and thinking of you constantly. I hope the medicine works quickly, and that the shot won't make him sore all day. Hang in there. This too shall pass..this too shall pass....
