Milk Prices on the Rise

Written by dad - 3 Comments

Strep Throat – The Saga Continues

Written by dad - 2 Comments

Ugh. After having Son #1 and Son #3 diagnosed with strep last week, we picked up their antibiotics (Amoxicillin) and hoped for the best.

Strep Throat Rears its Ugly Head – Again

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

Son #1 had strep throat (i.e., Streptococcal pharyngitis) back in January, and guess what? We just found out that he has it again. We actually found out on Thursday, so he’s on the mend, but still feeling rundown. The silver lining here is that Son #3 wasn’t feeling well about a week ago, but then […]
