Scarlet Fever and Strep Throat

So Brayden was finally feeling better from his fall the other day when we felt him getting a fever.  I decided to take him in to the dr on Friday afternoon just because he had hit his head, too, during his fall and I didn't want to take any chances.  Well, right when we got to the dr's office he developed a rash over his entire body.  The dr took one look at him and said although he is very young it looks like Scarlet Fever.  She then took the test and it was positive!!!  That would mean that Madelyn had strep since she had stayed home from school for 2 days with a high fever and a stomach ache.  The dr sent me home with 5 prescriptions for all of my kids just in case I needed to fill them.  That pretty much sums up the beginning of our weekend.

Hope you are all doing well!!!  Did I mention that my throat started hurting yesterday during the 1st session of conference?  I think mine is just a cold, though.  Hopefully!!
