Crazy day...

Earlier in the week, I promised a recap of our crazy Tuesday.



Let me give you a little background. First- the Booger acquired another strange rash last Friday- we didn't think much of it- figured he was reacting to blueberries. It was a bit different than the banana rash. We just decided to keep an eye, cut off the blueberries, and make sure nothing changed. By Monday night it had spread to his baby booty, arms, and legs. He was still happy as could be, but we were more concerned since it had gotten worse. Monday he was a grouch all day and didn't nap well for the sitter so we were glad to take him to the doctor to make sure we hadn't been torturing the poor baby by waiting so long.

After waiting for 20 minutes we had a 10 minute conversation with the doctor that led to a diagnois of a viral rash. Yep- nothing we can do. We also got some great reassurance from the doctor for the future--- "Some kids are just rashy kids, they come in for hand, foot, and mouth, then for fifth's disease, then well, we won't keep going..." Thanks doc... very excited to hear this. Looking forward to seeing you often...

Welcome to the club! We seem to catch all the viruses...sick kids and nothing we can do. Its frustrating! Esp the rashes b/c the daycares freak about those...thankfully you don't have to worry about that though!
