No Scarlet Fever!

Well, the verdict is in...we saw our pediatrician today and he thought it was kind of crazy that a doctor said Luke had Scarlet Fever. He said it is definitely NOT Scarlet Fever and he was glad we didn't start the antibiotics. Luke has Pityriasis Rosea which is a harmless non contageous rash that will go away on its own. No worries. Our doctor also apologized that his staff did not return my messages last week.

I also went to the hospital today to try to get the results from the testing done on Asher and frustratingly enough, the final reports are STILL NOT in. So we just have to wait. They told me to call once a week until they are in. What a pain! Just what I want to do! Oh well, I suppose I just need to be still.

Well that is the update for now...I need to go at least try to shower and vacuum while Ben is sleeping as my Tuppeware party is tonight! Thanks again for all of your prayers!

I am so glad to hear that it was not scarlet fever! What a relief. I always say, go with your gut--no one knows your son like you do! Glad you got that second opinion.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I am still praying everyday. I understand that this grief journey is a real process...and I know you will still have lots of bad days. But also good ones, and great ones too! I like reading about ALL of them. You encourage me daily Kristy!

I am so glad that the rash is something that will go away on it's own. Now relax and have a great Tuperware party and get lots of free goodies. I am praying for you sweetie.
