If you click on this picture, you can see his little ear...Matt's look of shock and dismay equaled mine at that point. My kids are getting really good at mimicking emotions now!
After trying to get through to the pediatrician's office for 30 minutes, I finally got an appointment. They suggested that we go to the "Contagious Room" since they were unsure of what it was...made me feel like a leper! Anyway, Husband met me there so he could walk Hailey around the office building while I took care of Spot (yes, that's what I'm calling him these days...he's taken a liking to it). The Good Doctor came in, asked some questions, listened to me, and examined Matthew...fully. God, that kid does NOT like being put down on that paper...hates it.
Turns out, it's viral...he was a little shocked at how quickly and completely it spread, but it's a virus. Gross, right? No oozing, puss, blisters, pimples...thank God...I'd have a complete nervous breakdown if this shit came with extra fluids. Take extra care in the sun and notify them if it gets worse.
Thanks for all of your concerns...I really like hearing that this crap happens to other people. Makes me feel like less of a leper.
Oh, and when I was snapping Matt's update shots, Hailey got very enraged that she wasn't in on the action, so here is her morning photo...what a little diva we have emerging! Ugh...just my luck, right? Doesn't she know that she can't replace me?
More tomorrow about this...I am so freaking excited about this. That's right...our very own C.S.A.!!!! Pick up on Wednesday! I can't wait!!!
