It is official. I am sick.

My peri's office did a strep test for me. I called them for a referral to somewhere that I could get it done quickly and one of the NPs said "Just come here and I'll do it."

Of course, they don't have the rapid strep tests since they don't do those normally and they have to send it to the lab. They said it takes 2-3 days for the lab to get it. HOWEVER...she did not see any strep colonies and felt it looked like swelling of the throat due to sinus drainage.

And...if it is a cold and nothing more....

I can still breast feed because my milk will give the lowercase antibodies against this particular virus and he will not catch it. They said that if I'm still worried, it is fine to scrub thoroughly for 3 minutes and then wear a mask while I'm with him so that I don't breathe my germs out on him. The same goes for Mr. W, however his nose is draining forward, so he can't easily wear a mask. It is rather inefficient when you have to continually remove it to blow your nose.

  Comments about my post, "":
So sorry you're feeling badly. Hoping it passes soon.
Ugh! I hope you are both all better soon.
I've been following your story faithfully and this reminds me when my firstborn was in the NICU. I, too, got sick and it was just from recovering from the section...going nonstop...sitting there for hours watching my sweet girl in the incubator (and getting kicked out during shift change!). I hope you feel better and that is one beautiful baby you have there!

p.s. Hope you feel better, too, Mr. W!!
I hope you feel better soon! Glad to hear it does not sound like strep and WON'T STOP THE EXCITING BREASTFEEDING!!! Woo hoo! Friday!
