A rash is never just a rash...

So Eliza has Coxsackie virus. She broke out with a rash the past few days so I took her to the pediatrician (the new one) for a check. Yes! She was just at her 10 month check up on Monday. No the doctor didn't mention anything wrong with her throat. as for the rash, I was hoping it was just prickly heat.

I should have known that with E a rash is never just a rash. Whenever there is something going on in he teeny weeny body, she gets a rash. The doctor took one look in her throat and said it was Coxsackie. They also did strep test and that came out negative. Thank goodness. So she needs plenty of rest and fluids over the next few days. My poor lil' angel. I do believe she will have had it all by one year of age.

I guess that explains the hour long crying episode on Monday on the way home from her well visit. Poor baby.

I hope she feels better soon! Remember our trip to Baltimore about a month ago? Riley was not himself, running a fever, etc.....turns out he has hand, foot, mouth too! He didn't get the sores in his mouth, just his feet. Sadly, it is just that time of year when it goes around. I am actually glad it was now and not when school started- at least I was home.

I hope E is feeling all better soon!
