#Microblog Mondays - A "normal" sick visit

We had to take M into the pediatrician's office today for a sick visit. We seem to only do this for an issue with his skin and today was no different. Friday night M came down with a rash and it was not a normal reaction to an allergen so both J and I were concerned. We were even more concerned because we were traveling at the time and no where near home. We watched him over the weekend and the rash was worse yesterday but he had no other symptoms. We went to see Dr. W this morning and it turns out M had a NORMAL childhood illness...roseola. Dr. W was pretty funny when she said she was glad she could help this time because usually when it comes to M and his skin she has to refer us to a specialist!

M had a fever last Tuesday through Thursday but nothing that made me overly nervous and it reacted well to the Ty.lenol. Both J and I assumed it was teething as M has been chewing on everything lately. Turns out we were wrong. Thankfully, we did not have the high fever that can be associated with the illness. So our blotchy boy is a normal blotchy boy this time. :)

  1. Well, at least he's being treated for a common condition. Hope M is feeling better very soon!
