Doctor's Visit

O.K., First, last week Kadence had a horrible rash, which from previous experience, I thought was a strep rash. Kennedie had the same rash a while back and that's what it was. Before that, I had no clue that you could get a rash from Strep and I also had no clue that a kid could have strep and it not be the typical strep throat! I know I should've known these things after 4 kids, but it had never happened before, so I didn't.

Back to my story...When I took Kadence to the Dr., her strep test was negative and he said that the rash was just a reaction to her body fighting off some sort of infection. So she got some medicine and we went on with our lives.

Well, Saturday night, Kennedie began to get a rash on her chest, and Sunday and Monday, it had quickly spread all over her entire body..scalp and all! And her's itches!! So, today, I decided I might better go get it checked out.

Sure enough, she had strep. The Doctor suggested a shot, which I agreed, and we waited for the nurse to come administer the shot. When she came in, she told Kennedie that she would give her the shot in her butt. Kennedie quickly responded and said, "NO, In my leg!" And preceded to pull her pants leg up. The Nurse said, "I have to do it in a big muscle". Kennedie said, "NO, My arm!" Finally I convinced her that she had to have it in her butt, so we laid her on her belly and she did quite well, with only a few whimpers. We got her a sucker and off we went.

On the way to the van, I said, "That hurt a little, huh, Kennedie?" And she quickly said, "No, Mama, It hurt BIG!" It was really quite amusing to me! (not to her though!) Then we went to Fred's pharamacy to get the prescriptions and she decided to tell everyone we saw that she got a shot in her butt and got a bandaid on it! My little girl is NOT shy in the least bit! She's sleeping now, and hopefully will be fine soon. I just thought I would share my day with you all!

Hope everyone is feeling better soon and you can stay out of the DRs. Never had a shot in the butt, but I can guess it really would hurt. Poor thing.

The rash from Strep sounds like Scarlet Fever. I had it when I was little....and my oldest got it in the 4th grade

Those shots in the bottom are painful.. Poor thing, I hope she feels better soon. We are all on the verge of being sick here...

Wow brave girl! I can honestly say that even at 18 I would have run out of the room before getting a shot in my butt.
Hope she feels better soon!!

Owwwww! what a brave girl you have there!! hope she is doing better tonight.

Awww I'm so sorry about the illness in your house. We're dealing with the stomach bug AGAIN.

This post had me thinking about how easy it is to get shots in our family...an 18 month old doesn't really put up much of a fight since she doesn't know what's going on. I can't even imagine how difficult it will be when she wises up.

Hope all is well soon!! Sick babies are so sad! Breaks my heart. :(
