Hannah has Roseola, it’s a virus. It starts with a fever for 3-7 days, and then 12-24 hours after the fever goes away a rash shows up. So tonight, almost exactly 24 hours after the fever ended, the rash showed up:
If you look closely you can see tiny red bumps. The rash doesn’t itch so that’s good. The real blessing is that when she was most contagious, the 2 days before she got the fever, we were on vacation so we didn’t go to church and she didn’t expose 30 kids in the nursery.
There isn’t anything you do for Roseola, and now that the fever is gone she isn’t contagious anymore. Good to know why she was sick, and now she has the antibodies so she won’t get it again. It was a bit of a rough week, but it was a good reminder of how much support we have. Thanks for your well wishes and prayers.
