A new November illness: strep throat.  Poor Käthe...I knew her cold wasn't getting better, but when there was a new fever (after a week without) it was time for the doctor.  She complained exactly one time that her throat hurt (a few days ago) and her fever this morning was only around 100, so I was expecting sinus infection and not strep.  Hopefully the Zithromax kicks in and she feels better tomorrow. I hope it does the trick - she's allergic to the preferred penicillin.
Thankfully our doctor will be around all through the holiday, and told me to call if someone else shows symptoms - she will meet us at the clinic for a strep test and save a trip to urgent care.  I am pretty sure that we have the best family doc someone could hope for.
