Crapeola

















Recently we had the displeasure of experiencing roseola with Maggie. Poor little thing didn't know what was going on and honestly, neither did we. A friend of ours suggested we not rule out roseola when, on the fourth day of a 100+ fever and no other real symptoms of anything, we had to cancel some fun plans with her family because of Maggie's condition. Turns out she was right. After Maggie's fever broke she got the rash. It appeared pretty heavily on her butt, upper legs, arms and face. I was assured that the rash wasn't itchy and that it wouldn't hurt (thank goodness!) and fortunately that seemed to be the case for Mags too. She ran around the house looking horrible but feeling just fine. Thank goodness that's over.

Poor girl. She seems no worse for the wear though. I'm glad she's OK!
