Burning Up...

We made it almost 9 months without getting sick, however all good things must come to an end.  Last weekend, Brody had his first fever.  He started off a bit fussy at Caleb’s Birthday Party, and ended up with a 102.8 degree fever by that night. Motrin was helping to keep his fever a little lower, but he was still pretty miserable.  Sunday we thought a dip in the cool pool water would help.  He didn't want anything to do with it!  

Monday we went to the pediatrician, and he said he thought it was a virus, or maybe Roseola.  He told us to keep treating the fever, but not to be surprised if Brody ended up with a rash by Tuesday or Wednesday (this is the classic symptom of Roseola).  Well, sure enough Wednesday night I came home from work to this…
Covered in a rash, but feeling better!
Poor baby... but after a few days he is finally back to his old self!
