Scarlet Fever-without the fever.

Kobe has scarlet fever-officially.  He acts fine, plays like normal, but had weird little rashy bump things all over him so I took him into the doctor and they tested him for scarlet fever and it came up positive.  I'm not thrilled-but considering I am doing a funeral video for an 11 year old girl who just died of Cancer I am still feeling very thankful!

Is he on an antibiotic? That is bacterial right? I had students who had that, and strep throat went with it. Does he have strep too?
I know you are taking good care of him. NO ONE can be sick for Christmas:)!

Love you guys! Tell him we will pray he gets better soon.

Did you get my email with the links regarding scarlet fever? Like I said we had three with it at christmas when the kids were little. I am glad it is now not at CHRISTMAS!
Love you,
Mom

My thoughts and prayers are with Kobe for a speedy recovery. Does any one else have it at school?

he is on antibiotics and does not have strep. he had a sore throat on friday which went away but was the early signs of this.

I have no idea if anyone else at school has it-i just called the school to let them know and mentioned they might want to send home a letter warning parents.

what made me take him to the doc. was the very weird rash he has. he had the tiniest little bumps all over him, even on his hands. They were not noticeable unless you were looking for them. They looked like an allergic reaction to something. Very weird.

Is he doing any better today?

Well, I am glad it doesn't seem too serious. Whenever I think of Scarlet Fever I think of Little Women...

Leah Wentzel said...

lol, when I told my mom what he had she said," i haven't even heard that mentioned since reading Little House on the Prairie books to you kids when you were little."

I thought of Little Women too yesterday, it isn't anything like that-at least with Kobe. I had been taking his temp. a couple times a day prior to going to the doctor and he never even had a temp!!!

He seems to be doing ok today-he isn't really out of ben yet :)
