Griffin Has Strep
I don't know what it is but ever since we got here in December Griffin has been so sick it seems one illness after another and now it is strep. He was never so sick in Alaska and certainly never had strep before. I don't know if it is because parents here have been sending their sick children to school or if he is picking it up at the grocery store. I need some ideas of what to do to get him to eat because the poor little fella just won't and can't seem to eat anything, I know that his throat hurts really bad but I've got to get the medicine in him somehow. The doc prescribed a medicine in capsule form and said that we could open it up and use the powder in food but if he's not wanting anything then I don't know how we're gonna get it in him. Thank goodness he is drinking lots of water and he hasn't lost any weight yet. So, if anyone has ideas of what kind of food to try that might entice him I would love to hear it. He is sleeping a lot which is good because he certainly needs the rest and his spirits are high in spite of all the pain he is in.......that's my little trooper!!!!
