We took Parker to see Dr. Bravo yesterday because he still had a fever, and wasn't acting like my happy baby. Of course they couldn't get him in until 3:30, and by the time they took his temperature, his fever had broke. Talk about feeling like an overprotective, idiotic mom! He did not have an ear infection (phew!), but his throat looked red... which means he most likely had a sore throat. And then he told us that he bet that he had a pretty good chance of having Roseola. I had never heard of this before, but it is where a baby (most likely between 6 months and 2 years) has a fever for a few days, and is followed by a rash over the body. Well, today he got the rash! So Roseola it is. Luckily it doesn't itch or anything, and doesn't need antibiotics. So at least we now know what it was. Hopefully he will be better in the next day or two.
Poor little guy!
Here are a couple pics I took today from my camera phone. You can tell he is starting to feel a little better... and being silly with some plastic thing that was in his baby kit :)
