Can I have a do-over??

For 2007, that is?? It seems that this is not our year, for health issues, anyways!

Last night, Gary noticed that Aili's torso was covered in a fine bumpy rash. It didn't seem to bother her, and I thought that it may be just a heat rash, as she had been dressed in a long-sleeved t-shirt and fleece pullover all day at daycare. She seemed slightly warm as well, so we gave her some acetominaphen and decided to wait to see what the morning brought.

The rash was still evident in the morning, so I decided to not go into work as previously planned and took Aili to the walk-in clinic after dropping Gary off. Sure enough, her throat was red and inflamed and a throat swab confirmed what the doctor suspected.

Aili had strept throat and SCARLET FEVER!!

Seriously. I give up.

  3. OMG Sue....will it ever end?? But maybe the worst will be getting out of her system now and then you can enjoy the rest of the year. Poor little thing!

  4. Ok, these daycare providers need to reassess their mandate if they're allowing children to attend and thus making others sick (assumming that's where she got it).
