I had thought that sudden appearance of a major head to toe rash on Roob were just remnants of The Infestation and I didn't get too upset over my Scabie Baby, even though last night she had a 101 degree temp. until this morning when I took her to church and my darling friend who is a nurse was all "dude, call a dr. yo." I ended up in urgent care with my spotty kid and the dr. was all "dude, I have no idea at all what this is, but here's some hydrocortisone cream. It won't help most likely and I am just giving it to you to make you feel better" and I was all "thanks. You have been absolutely no help whatsoever." Roob was acting peaked all day and didn't even want to nurse before bedtime and she did something she has never done, she fell asleep trying to nurse and it was kind of nice to hold her so I just let her snooze a bit. When she started to stir I sat her upright and OMG the fountain of barf that had no end commenced. Straight.Down.My.Shirt. I started screaming DAVID! BARF! and he came running with the tiniest towel we own and zero sympathy for my situation. Roob looked up at him and promptly resumed the barfing. The upshot is that she had just eaten some strawberry yogurt and so at least it doesn't smell bad, but I had no idea her stomach had that kind of capacity. Wow.

Will call for 2nd opinion 1st thing.

I'm not doctor, but if it's a lacy rash, it may be roseola. (Not serious, look it up!) When my girls had it, though, they got the rash after the fever had broken.

Hope she feels better!

Holy shitoli--
Even your scary baby barf posts make me laugh.

But seriously?

WHY do men come at you with the wash-cloth sized rag for a beach towel job??

Either that, or spin in circles saying, 'what do I do? What do I do?'
