But, strep?


Make that Butt Strep.

Yes, there is something called "Butt Strep" (or in fancy doctor-talk "rectal strep") and sweet Alice has it.

All over her red, little fanny.

And it looks like it hurts. Like really #$%ing hurts. I can't even imagine.

Strep THROAT makes me want to crawl in a corner and hide under blankets while popping amoxicillin until it goes away. And that's just your throat. How badly must it hurt...down there? Poor kid. Poor fanny.

So, we're quarantined. Until 24 hours on the meds.

It was a butt strep diagnosis, Alice crawling through fresh dog puke (that was this afternoon), kind of day today.

I have never heard of that diagnosis! Poor baby, that must be horrible.

I have signed up for Eagleman next year which is a flat course. Perhaps that will be my magic day, but if not then I need to find another flat half (or possibly 3, or 4). I am excited that you have the same goal, it would be fun to meet you at a race.

UGH! So sorry for Alice. She has had her share of medical issues, hasn't she? Poor thing. Hope she feels better soon!!!

Aw man! Nothing worse than a sick baby. Hope she feels better and that you are holding up. When Nathan was sick, I went through about 2 glasses of wine a night just to recooperate!

Butt strep? That really does sound miserable. Poor thing. At least she's at the age where the other kid won't make fun of her - can you imagine going to school and the kids making fun of you for "butt strep"?
