ANSWERS! and Allergies.

So on Tuesday, Nathan went to the DR to just get a check up after the hospital visit.  It went well.... except ...... da da daaaaahhhhhh.......   we have ANSWERS!!   Nathan had a Strep infection in his blood (not Staph)  So all this time we thought it was Staph and it wasn't, so it turned into untreated Strep.

Bring on 106 temp, red body ....  and this turned into SCARLET FEVER!

He definitely had all of that.... 

Yep, that's right.  

This was brought up ... the rapid strep was negative, the blood culture was positive.   So yeah ...scary. 

And then, this happened..... 

So we had come home on some antibiotics from the hospital and this happened.  Full body hives.  Called the DR, they switched his meds.  So he's been on 3 antibiotics for like the last month!  So ... he started out on the Staph meds, then the one he came home from the hospital on... and now a new one because of the allergic reaction.  

It's just been rough.  He's still REALLY weak.  He still doesn't want to walk much.  He's being a bum, and that's okay.  We just want him better.  

We went school clothes shopping and he got sooooooo worn out after one store, we went home.  

He couldn't walk anymore, just wanted to be held, and fell asleep in the car on the way home.  

My poor boy :(
