I thought I’d send out a little update on how Gwyneth is doing. Her fever was
better Thursday morning, so we packed up and headed for St. George. (That’s
where we are now, but we are planning to come home today — weather
Yesterday the “stars” came out. Her tummy is covered in a
rash exactly the way the ER doc described for how roseola would look. So I
guess the mystery is solved.
It’s actually quite a relief to know what
was causing the fever. Her temp hasn’t spiked again since Wednesday night, and
at this point it seems to be completely gone. The rash doesn’t seen to be
bothering her — she’s not scratching or grabbing at it. She is more sleepy
than normal, but maybe that’s partly from the antibiotics for the UTI. *shrug*
In any event she is definitely out of danger. I guess it takes roseola about a
week to run it’s course, and it passes to others the way a cold does, so for the
greater good, we will keep her under quarantine until the middle of next week.
Thanks for all your love and prayers.
