Roseola Fever and Rashes

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Bel just got over Roseola. It was a long grueling week of fever and rash. She had a fever of up to 103 for 3 days, and then developed pink splotchy spots that started on her face and worked it's way all over her body. It was a little freaky, both the long fever and the ugly rash, which got worse before it got better.

At first my mom and I thought that it was the measles. So we took her to the pediatrician, and thankfully it was just Roseola. First time I had ever heard of it, but found out from some friends that their kids had gotten it in the past, too. It was so awful, though, because I felt like her fever would never go away. That was the longest fever that I remember her having. And then when it finally went away, and the rashes appeared, I thought they'd never go away either. That they would continue to get worse and worse, like Ebola or something.

Then, also being pregnant, I was worried about the fetus getting sick, too. The doctor said it shouldn't be that big of a deal, but I just imagine, what if he has a fever in my womb and is uncomfortable and has spots? I suppose it's normal to worry about those things. But I'm just so glad it's all over now.

Bel is back to being healthy, and she can finally go hang out with some friends. She went a little stir crazy being cooped up in the house for a week. Just imagine how she'll do being cooped up when I have the new baby this winter. Yikes!
