Roseola

Gabbie has been sick and crabby the last 4 or 5 days. It started last Friday morning when she woke up with a fever. I stayed home from work and basically carried her around everywhere. Then Saturday morning the fever was down some but by 2pm it was back up to 102.5. We went to the Urgent Care who said they saw fluid behind her left eardrum so it could be the cause of all of her pain. By Sunday she was becoming increasingly crabby and Monday was downright horrible and a rash was developing on her stomach. Steve took her to the doctor today and she was diagnosed with Roseola. The doctor said a lot of people say their children are crabby and irritable. He said it is likely she had a headache and achy joints. Thankfully she is already acting like she feels better tonight! Unfortunately the rash has spread all over and even on her face:( But I am so happy she seems to be feeling better and even went to sleep tonight without any screams or cries.

I remember that sickness with my Kenz. By the time you finally figure out what is wrong(with the surfacing of the tell-all-rash), they are feeling better. Figures!!! :)

Oh my goodness, poor little Gabbie. I am so sorry but so happy to hear she's on the road to mending. Get well sweetie. Is the fluid in her ear better? Will try to email you b/4 we head to Orlando.
