Foiled Again Batman

Our trip is off. At least the boys and I aren't going. My mom is still planning on heading out this morning so please pray for her as she drives 6 hours all by herself.

Yesterday I started out with a super dry throat. I told Jared it reminded me of "cotton mouth," a side effect of some meds. Last night after volleyball however it just plain hurt. I was still holding out hope that it was allergies and planned to go ahead.

My van is clean, fueled up, my bags are packed, and the kids are super excited.

At 5 am this morning I woke up with severe pain in my throat and couldn't sleep. Using a flashlight I found that the back of my throat went from reddish to covered in pustules. My tonsils are ridiculously swollen and my body hurts.

I have strep throat. My sweet grandpa isn't in the best health and can't have a sickie at his house. We're going to have to postpone our trip and I'm just sick (no pun intended) about it. I have an appointment this afternoon to go get antibiotics.

Grrr, a lot went into getting ready to leave today. Now I just want to sleep.
