So, remember how I mentioned Em was sick on Friday? The doctor said she had Roseola. Her fever lasted until Tuesday morning, and as soon as the fever ended the crazy rash started.
I asked the doctor-- as well as several of my nurse co-workers whether she was contagious because we were planning on having a little party at my house this weekend for my friend Stace. The consensus was that she was no longer contagious once the rash started.
Things were going as planned until late Thursday night when she started a cough (like on old man), and a super stuffy, runny nose. after going back and forth on it--feeling really bad either way...and with Stace worried that I might freak out the others if they were paranoid about that sorta thing...I (with input from Stace) decided to postpone the party. Didn't want to risk having her around lots of other kiddos. And as it turns out there were several others sick too (adults & kids) so I'm thinking it was for the best.
We'll be trying for round two next weekend! Sorry to those who couldn't cancel food orders, or bought supplies for their potluck contribution. I feel horrible, and have been feeling bad since Friday morning--as you can tell I'm STILL thinking about it since I'm blogging it!
On a happier note, Em is feeling much better and I'm praying that she'll be illness free for awhile. Here she is feeling better...
