Updated: K is still really sick

CJ and I just got home from bring K to urgent care tonight. Her temp was up to 103, and she was still refusing to eat or drink anything.
The doc swore- after her physical test- that he thinks its strep throat. Ears are clear, no tenderness, swollen glands in throat, stinky breath, high temp. Her throat/tonsils were really enlarged and pussy looking- he showed us her swab and it was bloody :(.
The quick test was negative. So......we opted for the shot and hope the morning "overnight" test shows that it IS strep. Otherwise, we bring her back in for more tests.
We have one sick girl on our hands.......

All she kept saying was "mommy, owie, mommy, owie" *sob*

Keep an eye out for spots on her hands and feet. We had a hand, foot, and mouth virus last summer that I even got an swore was strep. The only way we realized it was HFM was my negative strep culture and some blisters on Avery's feet that I thought were from her needing bigger shoes. It was so far beyond miserable for us all, on their 2nd birthday too.

Hope K feels better soon!
