Roseola

On Friday night Baby G started running a little bit of a fever.
 By Saturday night his fever was up to 104.1....
 Baby G was pitiful looking and Mama and Daddy were worried.  We used a lot of Tylenol and Motrin and had many lukewarm baths in attempt to bring the fever down.  Then by Sunday he didn't have much of a fever.  But on Monday morning Baby G woke up with....
A rash.  Poor guy looked terrible and you could tell he felt even worse than he looked.  We saw a dr at 3 and were told that Baby G probably had Scarlatina.  We then had to go to the hospital to get blood work done.  Praise God that the results were negative and Baby G was diagnosed with Roseola.  This was good news because it meant that the virus would just run its coarse and the rash should be gone in 24-48 hours.
 By the time we got home tonight Baby G's rash was already worse.  And it was not just on his face but....

Pretty much all over his body.  And the poor guy is really starting to itch.

It was a terrible sight to watch.
Praying all this gets cleared up real soon and that Baby G will be back to himself again.
