Just a quick update: Rhett is feeling much better and is planning on going to his friend's birthday party tomorrow. He can hardly wait! At about 4:00 he was asking if it was bed time so he could wake up and the party would be closer.
It was exciting when he started to show signs of himself on Wednesday ... provoking his siblings and even arguing a bit ;) I think I can safely say that was the first and only time I was ever excited about that kind of behavior. Ha ha!
He has to stay on antibiotics for 2 weeks; a better tasting kind! The swollen glands might take a couple weeks to go down to normal size and right now he holds his head to the side to be most comfortable. Might need some massage therapy after!!
