Bit of a rant. My Daughter thought she picked up some sort of bug over the last several days. Flu-like symptoms, along with a cold. Fever came later, so she called the Doctor, but unavailable. Saw a nurse practitioner instead. Sent her home also feeling it was a virus.
Today much worse, so called again, this time insisting on seeing any Doctor available. Ours wasn't available again, but the one we saw was very good. Immediately diagnosed her with Strep throat. Because of having Crohn's, she didn't even want to take the chance on waiting for cultures. Put her on antibiotics right away.
She's in bed now still with a high fever, and hasn't eaten much of anything in days. The only good news is, she still has about 4 weeks until her next Remicade infusion, so should be okay there.
I worry so much about my Daughter, always tell her she's going to be the death of me yet.
Rant over, tomorrow's another day. Is that a good thing?
