Big day Today~

Today my boy is off to his first band competition in Columbia, South Carolina~ He is a bit nervous to say the least.  We are heading up there as well and look forward to seeing how they make out.  
My poor boy had to get a shot yesterday for STREP throat. I never even heard of a shot for strep throat.  But because he is old enough, and because he had this competition today, the nurse said there is no choice, bend over kid! 

(Alex on the far right)
 He is extremely run down and it all caught up with him.  He said the shot was killer, and he never ever had one that hurt so bad.  I will say it kicked in quickly, and he is ready for today!~
Ever hear of the strep throat shot?

Gotta run now girls and get ready for the big day.
Did I mention, the kids will not be home until 1:15 am.  
Crazy right?

Good luck Alex! No, I have not heard of a Strep shot. My 19 year old gets it sometimes so I will have to remember that.
I hope he can rest tomorrow!

The adrenaline will get him through but then he'll crash when it's all over. Bless his heart, I hope that shot is worth it and heals him in no time!! Praying here.

I am a nurse. The shot was probably Bicillin. Which is a penicillin. I hate to give them because they hurt. It is wvery thick and slow to give. It does work well.

How exciting for Alex! I'm sorry about the strep throat and yes I have heard of the shot, they work like magic! Painful but worth it. I'm glad he's already feeling better and I hope he has a fabulous experience!

Nope, never heard of a strep throat shot. There's been a lot of strep going around up here though, so maybe there's a big national outbreak of it. Hope his band does well at the competition. Sounds like a fun, but exhausting day.

I almost got really excited because my husband is a drum line instructor and they're having their first competition tonight in Columbia...Tennessee. Haha!

Never heard of giving a shot for strep before Debbie and my oldest daughter used to get strep all the time! Well I'm sure it worked a lot faster then taking antibiotics. So glad he didn't miss out on his first competition!! Enjoy, Martina

I'm so glad to hear that your son is feeling better! I've never heard of that shot and I just told my husband about it because he tends to get strep throat every now and then and suffers for days and days with it. If he ever gets it again, he will gladly take the shot. Thanks for the tip! Good luck to your son's band. Hope he does well.

Good luck from one band momma to another! Woo Hoo =)
Poor baby is gonna by wiped out. Sure hope he can get some rest after and feel better.

Nope, never heard of a strep shot. And Austin has had strep. Acutally turned into scarlett fever. Good thing to watch for. Never knew that was how it started until our ER trip.

They sure look SHARP. Nice uniforms. Lots of luck!!

Yep, I was a pediatric nurse before I did Pharma sales, we use to give a penicillin shot to kids when they were to sick to keep pills down or had to be in a band competitionLOL It works quick and hurts like heck! Good luck at the competition!

I've never heard of a strep shot. I hope he doesn't have a reaction from the shot. The competition will be stressful enough. I got a DTap shot earlier this week because of the floodwater contamination, and I was so sick the next day. Fever, dizziness, aches, etc.

Good luck to Alex! Hope he feels better.

Your kids go to Fort Mill! Ugh, They had the best band when I was in school. I remember the envy at band competitions seeing them preform Fiddler on the roof at state...

Yesmam! I had an antibiotic shot for strep once, they hurt like heck! We have one in a high school marching band and are very familiar with all the competions..

Wow! You obviously have a handsome and talented son - hope his competition went great! So sorry he was sick. I don't know about a strep shot, but I had some Rocephen shots summer before last when I had a bad case of pneumonia that hurt extremely badly and left horrible bruising. I certainly feel for him. Hope he is completely healthy very soon. Looks like you got it looking like gorgeous Autumn all around your lovely place, Debbie - no surprise there - you just have that wonderful flair! Lots of love and best wishes! Laurie from Scene of Sublime (formerly Scene of the Grime)

Oh wow Debbie, 1:15a.m.!!! I don't even know what that is anymore! Once in a blue moon I think I wake up that hour to pee.

How proud you must be of your young man! He's so handsome:) It's so great that he's into this, keeps him busy in a good way. No, I have never heard of the strep throat shot but I sure wish it had been around when I was growing up because I got it every year and it was horrible:(
