Strep Throat ... Again! It's a Conspiracy!

Wouldn't you think that by now, at the end of the school year, a kid would be in the clear from infectious things like strep throat?

Woulda thunk, huh?

Not so.

And wouldn't you think that, given the opportunity to take chewable, tasty Amoxil or swallowable PCN, a kid would go for the better tasting of the two?

Woulda thunk, huh?

So, not only do I have a recovering 8 year-old, I have an 8 year-old who is gagging on her meds every single time she takes them. Three times a day.

She opted out of the shot. I should have encouraged it.

This was added to my day on top of the student who thinks EVERYthing is a conspiracy. Everything.

New no smoking laws. Conspiracy.

Seat belt laws. Conspiracy.

F in Microcomputers last month. Conspiracy.

Every single agency in the United States (don't EVEN get him started on the INS). Conspiracy.

It is going to be a LOOOOOOOOOONNNNGGGGGG four weeks.

Maybe I could get him started on the idea that the rapid strep test people, the doctors, and the pharmaceutical companies are all in it together.

Nah ... that's MY conspiracy theory.

Have a good one, peeps! Stay cool!

What is it with you and strep?
It apparently lives somewhere in your house and comes out to make an appearance once in a while!

But then what would you all do on your downtime at work if I don't live here anymore?

Glad you finally got the Queen treated for strep. Sorry about the pill gagging thing :o(

I cannot for the life of me understand why they give HUGE pills to people who are suffering from a sore throat.

It's a conspiracy, for sure!

Hey, do they ride a bus? I swear to gob my kids were sick all the time when they had to ride the bus to school. It's like the germs just hung out in there forever! And with no cold ass weather to kill them, they came out in droves in the spring.

Hope everyone is healthy again soon.
