The last few weeks have been a bit upside down at our house. Lots of germs.
Little Brother K had a bad cold that turned into bronchitis meaning lots of juggling childcare and work schedules to care for a sad little boy. Just as he started to feel better... JJ came down with what (we thought) was the same thing. But then things changed. She woke up one morning and her face was very swollen. I called the doctor who asked us to go straight to Emergency. The doctor there figured it was a virus and sent us home. Later that day she developed a rash all over her torso, the swelling continued, and the fever would not go away. Back to the doctor for tests. Long story short it looks like it was probably Scarlet Fever. Thankfully JJ has responded very well to antibiotics and is now back to her regular feisty self!
I'm very behind on work and laundry and, well, everything. But I have remembered to take a few ((hair)) pictures in the last few weeks and will update here soon.
In the meantime, here are before and during pictures of JJ's poor swollen face (it was even more dramatic in real life, you'll have to trust me!).
|Before getting sick|
|Waiting for the doctor; swelling mostly in the eyes and nose at this point.|
|Back home, more swelling, sad face...|
|Now back to her usual feisty self, with a few extra eye wrinkles left over|
(extra wrinkles on both of us....!)
