Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" My DH is on his way to the store to get some bananas and apple sauce. We gave him some crackers, but ... [snip!] ... out tomorrow. I'm also wondering if he could be having a reaction to his flu shot? It is the first time he has ever had it."
DD was coughing because of the strep throat apparently. she started her antibiotic on saturday night. yesterday she got a runny nose and also watery eyes. she is doing much better now, though. it's a good thing we got her into the doctor when we did. her actual pedi missed it and i had to take her to urgent care.
here's a link with strep throat symptoms.
it says the more cold like symptoms you had, the less likely you are to have strep. at first, the doctor thought she just had a viral infection like the website has. he did a throat swab JUST IN CASE and it came back positive. she had the coughing and sneezing and running nose and watery eyes and everything.
she still wanted to eat/drink, but did it MUCH slower and had to take alot of breaks. she didn't act like she was in alot of pain, either. plus ontop of it all, she's teething really bad right now, so that explained some of her clingy-ness.
