Can I ask for some help/opinions???
We have plans to have family visit tomorrow from out of town. We only see them 2-3 times a year so it's alway special and a lot of fun. Anyway, we just got a call from them telling us that this morning they took 2 of their 3 kids into the docto,r where they were diagnosed with strep. Both were put on antibiotics immediately the 3rd shows no symptoms so was not placed on antibiotics.
So...do will still have them come? I know there is a chance that my 2 boys (19months old) will catch this, but it would be so dissappointing to have to miss the visit. Our next opportunity won't be until August. I think my biggest concern is landing Benjamin in the hospital again. We have had a rough winter of sickness & he has caught everything & always gets keytones & stops eating. However, strep would be a new battle.
I am willing to risk having two sick boys for a few days, but Benjamin's diabetes is a different concern.
Have any of you faced strep? Any unique challenges to diabetes with it?
