Well, Xander still had the fever this morning and when I took a shower with him I could feel a rash all across his torso and parts of his back. Off to Urgent Care we went.

The doctor diagnosed him with Scarlet Fever.Link Not sure as to the vector, could be school could be something else. Is a major bummer. He's on amoxicyllin for the next 10 days. We're giving him Children's Advil and some Bennedril to ease his discomfort and to hopefully let him sleep.

Poor little guy is so uncomfortable. We're doing what we can, but seeing as he seems to prefer me to Donna right now, I'm calling off work for Sunday and might need to call off Monday as well if he is still showing signs of the illness. (Can't drop him off at day-care if he's sick, donchaknow.)

Good thoughts welcomed. Hopefully the antibiotics will do their thing quickly and knock the bacteria down so he'll have some relief.
