Our Little Scare




We had a little scare yesterday. Brinley has been sick over the weekend with a fever. Monday night she said that her neck hurt really bad. She walked around like she had slept on it wrong. Well Tuesday afternoon Ryan lifted her hair up to look at it and she had a lump on the side of her neck. So we ran her up to Insta Care and she has strep throat. Then they sent us to a ear, nose, and throat specialist and she has tonsillitis and her lymph nodes are swollen. He says it is very common with kids who have strep. So they put her on steroids and an antibiotic and she has to go back on Monday to make sure the lump is getting smaller. He says a lot of the times they get abcess's on them and then they have to make an incision on the neck and go in and drain them out but he hopes we caught it soon enough that it will just get better. I am sure everything will be fine and we are praying for the best.
