We think Chloe has come down with her annual case of strep throat. She started to feel the scratchiness yesterday, and was feeling worse today. My mom had to cut short her day with the girls (no “Gnomeo and Juliet” for them) and Chloe and I waited two hours at the local immedicenter to have a doctor take a throat culture. We’ll know for sure tomorrow whether our suspicions are confirmed.
The good news is that Chloe will have an extra day to recover from whatever ails her, since she’s on break until Wednesday. But she’s going to be mighty bored, because I announced to her that she can’t get together with any friends. Bummer.
Needless to say, the Monday of solitude that I was eager to embrace was not so solitary. But that’s ok. After shoveling the snow this morning, I had a couple of hours of calm. I’ll take whatever I can get. And will cross my fingers that Sophie isn’t the next one to get sick.
