Teacher husband has been ill, not certain when it started.
Had an ear infection, started teaching...was sick but not really; then went to his family's for the labor day weekend, and I talked him into going to a Urgent Care Center, who diagnosed him with Strep Infections...
Lovely. He exposed his mother (cancer and diabetes), me, and who knows without ever knowing he was sick.
Is there anything I can do to prevent occurance? Or to tell his mother? Darn it, I knew he was sicker that he was willing to admit and as most men will always deny, "I'm not sick, don't need a doctor..."
Well, my house is a mess, I am a mess, and he is back, thank goodness. He's on antibiotics, and taking a few days off so he won't infect the kids at school...meanwhile I think I'm feeling a cold coming on and I still have my tonsiles. Apparantly, Rheumatic Fever, Scarlet Fever, and all kinds of organisisms will attack one whose immune system is compromised.
I plan to call the doctor tomorrow, but though someone might have suggestions...the docs have a way of always making me feel like I am overdoing the immunity weakness after cancer, chemo, rads, and anemia, not to mention the crap we don't know about.
Thanks for any insights...outsights, or otherwise.
Not well, not good, not happy.
