Megan has roseola.
Or so the doctor told me today. Which makes sense. Symptoms of roseola include. High fever lasting three to seven days, then, when the fever breaks, a red, spotted rash will appear over her torso, face, arms and legs. So far we've had three days of fever over 40 degress and now I'm just waiting for the rash to appear. I'm truly just thankful that it's nothing serious! I was beginning to expect the worst. It's so much easier to handle a sick child when you know what it is that's ailing them and what to expect. Now, that I think of it. O'm almost positive that Ben had roseola when he was a baby. At the time I thought he'd had an allergic reaction. But, it makes total sense that he'd had it too. I'll go dig out the pictures.
