Why is it that when one kid gets sick, the rest of them fall like dominoes?
Addie last week, then Arleigh, then Emory...
We spent Thursday and Friday at home together, playing dominoes all day, as his fever was 104* and he was miserable (which makes me miserable).
By 3pm I considered the doc office, knowing the holiday weekend would be long and tough if his fever didn’t let up. But the office was closed. A conversation with an on call nurse led us to the ER. He left there convinced the “hole” in his hand from the blood draw might never seal up. He also left with an Rx for antibiotics and a diagnosis of Scarlet Fever.
