3:44 am

Not the time that I want to be greeted by my oldest child, saying "mommy ... I feel like I'm going to throw up."

THANKFULLY, it never transpired. However, this does mean a trip to our Urgent Care center because well you know, germs and holidays go hand in hand. She was complaining of a sore throat yesterday all day, then she popped a fever of 102, and the nausea. Same exact symptoms that the Man had when he had strep.

I wish there was a strep diagnosis kit that they sold OTC. Wouldn't that be wonderful? And the only way you could get a script was by bringing in the dipstick with the positive sign on it, and the pharmacists would confiscate them, to eliminate the idea that people would just abuse the tests.

I think it sounds like a freaking solid idea. Especially at 8:00 am on a Memorial Day where I have all kids home, all of whom were expecting to go with me and their PawPaw to the Memorial Day parade this morning, but instead I am hoping to send the younger two with PawPaw and I will take the Queen to the infestation of all germs, the Urgent Care center.

There is a rumor that there is a NP at our local pharmacy, and that she can do strep tests, and get the scripts written and filled there. But my wild guess is s/he isn't working today.

Because I know I'm not.

Then that foils the family get together tonight. Ace will stay home with the Queen, while the Man, Monkey, and I go to my brother's camper to par-tay. And I will hear about this. Every. Single. Minute. Of. The. Day. Today.

Ok ... other than that ...

I am so with you on the OTC strep test; I suspect that I have my third case of strep since Easter, but I have to find an open doctor's office in order to be sure.

Oh joy! Because what I really want is some doctor I don't know shoving a swab down my throat, which will cause me to cough explosively in his/her face. Only to get a scrip for a yet stronger antibiotic, approximately the size of a mini Cooper, when it hurts to swallow my own spit right now.

I just think it is wonderful idea.

And guess what isn't open here today? Our Urgent Care center. So I am trying to keep her comfortable. Then when the sh** hits the fan at about 3 am this morning, which will force me into taking her to the ER, then I will be phoning in hate calls to the Urgent Care center for taking Memorial Day off...
