Jonathan hasn’t been feeling well for a couple of days. He was feverish the last two nights and didn’t sleep well. Last night he awoke Mark complaining of feeling very itchy. I found them both sleeping on the couch this morning. Jonny ran a fever during the day today as well.
Today when I got home from work, we had dinner (a wonderful beef chilli that Mark made), and then I got the boys ready for a bath. It was then that I noticed the fine, red rash over most of Jonny’s chest and back. Even though he wasn’t complaining of a sore throat, his tonsils did look red and swollen. A rapid strep test was positive.
We were able to get him started on some antibiotics tonight, and he won’t be going to school tomorrow. He should be (hopefully) back to his normal self within a day or two. I just hope nobody else has caught it from him.
