So Wednesday I developed flu like symptoms (soreness and aches all over my body and general fatigue) with a high fever and for the next two days this persisted with a throbbing migrane as well. My family was wonderful and took care of the two kids and would just bring the baby (4 months) back in to nurse while I slept for 3 days straight.
Friday I was feeling a little better but my throat felt atrocious so off to the doctor I went and alas I have strep. I hate the idea of taking antibiotics and messing my own and the baby's gut flora but I don't want to put us at further risk for infection. So far the kids seem to be okay but I don't want them to get sick either. I know I should have started on garlic from day one but my head was just in such a doozy it was tough just trying to get water down. Anyone ever just let the strep take it's course without antibiotics?
