So after Five days of fever's and an irritable baby...Av's finally got a "little" break today!
The Doctor called last night after our second round of blood work and a urine test. And....she contracted the Roseola Virus "baby measles." Which I googled as soon As I hung up the phone with the doctor.
Roseola (also known as sixth disease, exanthem subitum, and roseola infantum) is a viral illness in young children, most commonly affecting those between the ages of 6 months and 2 years. It is typically marked by several days of high fever, followed by a distinctive rash just as the fever breaks.
Though Av's fever is gone she has broken out in the rash. It doesn't bother her...though it breaks my heart to see my baby covered in red bumps. Anyways She's doing MUCH better today! She's had two good naps today though she still isn't interested in eating. :-(
John and I are very relieved our princess is getting back to her normal self! The rash could last anywhere from a couple hours to a few days....so just a few short days and Av's won't even remember any of this! Thank you to everyone who's called and left messages of concern for Av!
