Nichole and boyfriend wound up running Aubrey out to the ER this evening. (finally!) Spots were worse and she was miserable. After a grueling 3 hour wait in the waiting room.......and lord knows how long once they got into the exam room....... Not chicken pox. Not impetigo. doctor is "positive". This is put into quotes because this doctor isn't the brightest flower in the bunch. He says it's a virus. (well duh!) A highly contagious virus that only kids get. (so why haven't they informed the rest of the world?) Especially kids in day care. (huh??) While highly contagious it's not supposed to be the least bit serious. According to doctor it is supposed to be gone within 3 days. I'll believe it when I see it. Ok. So day 1 was yesterday. Should be gone by tuesday according to doctor. So attention Moms, evidently there is a virus out there carried by day cares that cause a rash almost identical to either chicken pox or impetigo, usually no fever (Aubrey had one), and causes blisters in the mouth too. (she does) Oh, and I'm adding this one in as she was extremely light sensitive this afternoon. And since it's a virus there isn't a darn thing they can do either. Well, isn't that lovely. So boyfriend is sitting her tomorrow while Nichole is in school since he doesn't have to work tonight. I'll have her Tuesday if she's still got the "rash". doctor ignored Nichole when she said the rash faded almost away when they gave the baby her allergy medication. *shrugs* But that makes me wonder if it's an allergic reaction?? Oh, well. This too shall pass.
