Word of The Week - Spots
What a week we've had in our house. Last week the Little Man fell poorly, I really didn't know what was wrong with him, he had a temperature and was really lethargic.
Then he came out in spots.
Then he came out in different spots all around his mouth and chin.
I took him to the Doctor who said he had a viral infection and Impetigo. Eventually, after another visit it was decided he had Scarlett Fever.
Highly contagious, he hasn't been to school for a week now.
Then Star got a temperature, and couldn't sleep. She's not slept properly for three nights now and today has done nothing but lie around drifting in and out of sleep and moaning about her head and her ears. I'm expecting another night of little sleep, or maybe she's so exhausted she'll sleep day and night now? I know I won't be able to sleep properly for worrying about her. There are no spots yet though.
The Little Man is now past his quarantine, so fingers crossed they both recover soon as we have some exciting trips planned in the near future.
