It Seems

that Gavin is a carrier. Which means that he is not the harmless victim to the strep throat war. He is the General of the attacking army. We saw the ENT Dr today and it is his recommendation that we extract Gavin's tonsils soon. They're huge, nasty beasts and they harbor the strep germs that probably got your kid sick. (sorry!) So he'll go in sometime after the 4th and have those babies removed. I foresee lots and lots of this in his near future ...



Poor kid. He always seems to draw the short straw.

awwww poor gavin. BUT on a brighter note, it will make him better and he gets a lot of ice cream. I would be royally screwed, I am lactose intolerant AND I hate jello lmao. I am sure he will do wonderful and he will recover fast!!! They do an amazing job on the tonsils now, it's not as bad as it use to be!
