That's not a radio station--that was Alex's temperature this morning!

After I totally freaked out, I called the pediatrician and took him in. Turns out he has strep throat. HOLY MOLY! That boy knows how to get my attention!

He got a couple of rocephin injections and a script for a different antibiotic than the one he was on last week. Hopefully this one will work and he'll be rid of this mess---and
that no one else in the house gets it!
