Oh Joy!

Yep!   It's Strep alright.  The nurse didn't want to swab it, said "looks ok, but I'll swab if you want me to".....well DUH why do you think I came out in TORNADIC WEATHER !!???!! 

So nah nah nah boo boo nursey it was POSITIVE.  Got me some Rx for Penny.  Sad note is nursey's hubby is a painter and one of his workers was killed in the Tornado this morning (which by the way is about 50 miles from where I live).

Doc said go home, take Rx, and plenty of Jack Daniels.  Love my Doc.

These tornado's are well inland from me.  But one never knows.  We get water spouts sometimes, but they rarely come on the land.  The last Tornado was 2 years ago and about 5 miles from me (as a crow flies) and that was in a big bad T-storm.  Right now we've got nice warm weather, and a T-storm is just right for producing Tornado's.  The last tornado that was at my property was back in 96 when Hurricane Fran came around.  No damage to us just the woods.

I'd rather have a Hurricane anyday.........

Tara should be home soon....Tom is about to pick her up from school.  I'm surprised they didn't call for early release.

I have a headache...need some drugs.   TTYL!

Glad you got some medicine.  I like your Doc's Rx.  I have  a Doc like that.  I have no doubt that HE keeps a bottle in his desk for just such an occasion. LOL
Sorry to hear about the fatality from the tornado.  We had a mild summer as far as living in Tornado alley.  
Feel better soon.

Nice about the nurse who didn't want to swab you.  Mine always want to swab me and I NEVER get strep.  The last time she said ok it's just tonsilitis.  Yes, I know.  
You are getting the weather we usually get.  Such fun.

We had a really bad storm come through here (Central Florida) last night and rip down some trees in the backyard.  I heard the wind blowing hard.  Anyway, I'm glad you all are safe and sound.  And feel better soon, would Ya?  Prayers for you.  Hugs and GBU, Shelly

Strep sucks but you'll never notice if you follow your doc's orders and take plenty of JD! I like that doctor of yours, he's my kind of guy!
We've been having the same weather here in FL, lots of sickness going around in my family too over the last 2 weeks.
I have to agree with you, I'd rather hurricanes any day over tornados!
Cheers! -- Here's to both of us and our families staying safe, gettin' better and having fun! Martha :-)

Take Care

We get tornadoes around these parts, but Lake Superior usually keeps them away from where I live. I saw the weather guy on GMA in your neck of the woods today. Hope that nasty weather stays FAR FAR away from you!!

Sorry you are sick - I've never had strep, but Hailey has & she was miserable.  Glad you got some good drugs.. hee hee

Have a good Friday & get some rest!

Yuck...I hate strep.  I'm prone to get them so if anybody is within 100 yds of me with strep...yep, I get it.  Tornados or don't like either but I'm with you, I'd take a hurricane anyday.  Tornadoes scare the crap out of me.  They hit western Pa. more frequently these days.  Take care!  HUGS  Chris
