Those sweet baby eyes

George is still sick. We think it might be Roseola since he was exposed to it about a week ago. It involves a high fever for three to four days with no other symptoms. The fever is followed by a rash all over the body for another three days during which the child is no longer contagious. It isn't overly serious, but the fever is high and causes worry for parents like me. Chuck and I are coping and giving little George lots of love and attention. The poor thing just whimpers and looks at us with confusion when he's awake. So, we've got one more day of fever ahead of us we think and since he still has a fever of 102.5 he won't be going back to school tomorrow. Chuck and I will have to rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock for child care duties tomorrow. I took some lunch to Chuck and held the little man. You can see how sick he is in his eyes.

Chuck looks pretty worn out too, as I'm sure you do also. I hope you all get to feeling better soon.

Hang in there. I remember when Rocky had roseola. It is scary when the run a temperature for so long and you can't break it. Then 4 days later his temp broke and the rash came he was covered. Rose colored....rose-ola.
