Streptococcal Pharyngitis - AKA Pus

Pus. There is no single grosser word known to mankind. It sends my gag reflexes into overdrive. And my belly to rumbling and my esophagus to contracting.
But alas, I have three little pus pockets in the downstairs playroom as we speak. Spreading their pus and good will too all men.
I took them all to the pediatrician this afternoon and it was unanimous: Strep Throat. But at least I got out of the waiting room with some cool medical supplies. I am as clepto about medical supplies as I am office supplies. What is wrong with me??? Nothing makes my skirt fly up like gauze and post it notes.
But now, my head is hurting and I am hot and I feel grumpy. I am going back for some tongue depressors meds.

That is a really good picture of the puss infected throat. I hope the twerps are feeling better soon. Step have been going around "here" too. Knock on wood, my kids haven't had it yet. But after looking at that pic, my throat is starting to feel kinda soar. LOL

Yea, I was sitting here, ready to dig into my supper, and I thought to myself "I wonder if CG has posted recently?" And then clicked on the page, and then almost barfed. It's pretty gross, but I am sorry for your twerps. Strep throat bites.

I wonder if they got it from the goat next door?

Awe, i am so sorry to hear they are sick.

But your playroom looks really good. I like the rug.

I agree with dana jones...blame the goat! :D
