Well, we had a rough week here! Brock came down with Scarlet Fever. It totally freaked me out when the doctor said this, but apparently these days it's nothing more than strep throat with a rash. The hard part was that he had a fever for 4 days of 104!!! It also came with a week of no sleep! He has recovered now but is still a little cranky and also has a little of the rash leftover. Glad it's over---it was definitely the most sick he's been in his short 2 years and I'm glad to know he won't get it again!!!

I'm sorry to hear about Brock and glad he's feeling better. I didn't even know Scarlet Fever was still around. Do you know where he got it?

No idea where he got it. It is strep and then apparently some children's immune systems don't resist the rash part of it. She was surprised to see it in a child as young as him...she said it's more common in 5 and up. You would be amazed at how many moms have told me they have had experience with it!!!

The bad news is that now Cameron has Strep throat!!! Ughhhhhhh!!!
