Riley is feeling much better now! I guess around 4:00 on Tuesday, she perked up and started feeling better.

Now me, on the other hand, I started having a little bit of a stingy throat. By 2 am, my throat was full on raw, painful, and swollen and I was running a 102 degree temperature.

Mom picked Riley up and took her to Becky's for me and I took myself to the doctor, where they tested me for strep. Yep. I have strep throat. YUCK.

Turns out my mother-in-law also has strep throat. So, I'm wondering if Riley didn't in fact have strep and passed it on to us.

I am starting to feel better on day #2 of strep throat, after a penicillin shot and lots of Advil and Tylenol. My temp is now 99-100 versus 100-1o2. So that's an improvement.

I'm working on a post for Riley's 9 month birthday. Even though she didn't have a very fun 9 month birthday, I thought in the spirit of renewed blogging, I would do a good post about her 9 months so far.

Marley and Me is kind of distracting me at the moment though. I know it's going to make me cry even though I read the book and know what's coming....

Ugh! I'm so sorry y'all are all so sick! It's so hard when they're babies, too, and can't tell you what hurts. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't have strep. I'm telling you, my girls break out in rashes just like that when they have strep.

Hope you all get better soon!!
