My 18 yr old DD had the flu last week, missed school/work, and has had strep throat all this week. Back to the doctor - 101.5 fever last night, even after 3 days of antibiotics. The doc said the antibiotics won't change the course of the illness, just help prevent rhumatic fever! She cries, her throat hurts so much. She's able to swallow bland tea, but the pustules on her tonsils make anything flavored hurt more. Such bad things should not happen to such wonderful people. She's the one who turned me on to BYC. Prayers appreciated. Thank you.
