This storyboard does not have a description.
Jessica is a flyer on Cheetahs! She's going to compete at Summit. (in Florida) Two days ago, Jessica's throat started to hurt, she didn't tell anyone because she didn't want to let her team down. On the plane Jessica notices a rash.
Ew! Is that a rash?!
You probably have jet lag.
The next day, Jessica and her team are supposed to go to Disney World. Jessica's head is pounding. Her throat hurts so bad and her stomach is upset. She tells her mom she's tired snd doesn't want to go.
Why didn't you tell me this earlier?! You need to compete today but we'll take you to the doctor when we get back home.
It's competition day and Jessica finally tells her mom whats going on. Jessica had reddish brown urine earlier and her face is swelling.
The doctor suspects that Jessica has Post-Streptoccal Glomerulonephritis, (swelling around face, brown urine, upset stomach) a sickness that is caused by previous infections involving the bacteria, Streptococcus. This effects the kidneys.He says she began by having a case of strep throat (headache, sore throat) that evolved into scarlet fever. (rash)
We had to run many tests, we took blood to see if her kidneys were working properly. We took a urine sample to see if there was any protein in the urine and we took a swab test to see if there was any Streptococcus bacteria. The test came back positive and we will need to proceed by limiting your salt intake and taking a blood pressure medication to keep your blood pressure high. We are also prescribing an antibiotic to kill the bacteria.
Well, the bacteria travels in droplets of water called respiratory droplets. When someone sneezes of coughs, the bacteria spreads. Theres no vaccines to prevent Group A strep but you can prevent it just by washing your hands!
How did this happen?!!
