Is she sick or isn’t she? She hasn’t been herself. She’s been complaining of a sore throat for 5 days with no other symptoms. My grandmother died, maybe she’s freaked out that her own body will fail her? Maybe it’s hypochondria?
But what if it really is something? It’s the last day of Spring Break and I do not need a sick child at home for another week. Worse, you’ll all think me a bad mother if I don’t take her to the doctor. Get in the car kids.
She’s also been traumatized since the Stomach Virus of 2012. So even if she isn’t sick, some reassurance from the doctor might be helpful. It’s been a long spring break and I need this kid to go back to school like a hog needs the open road.
Heart, check. Eyes, check. Ears, check. And the moment I’ve been waiting for… no signs of strep!
Doctor: ”Your body is perfectly healthy. Throats get dry, poopies are sometimes soft.”
Thanks, Doc. Time for school everyone!
