Today was planned to be the "bestest day ever" in the lives of our two school-goers. It's Friday, it's a half-day (surprise to us), it's the Carnivalumpics in honor of Dr. Seuss and it's the most anticipated cousins sleep over in the history of the Fraker world, for this plan would be the kids' first time spending the night elsewhere.
Last night the best day almost fell to pieces when we found a rash spotting up on Ida. "It can't be!" I thought. I had seen this type of rash before and seeing it again made my stomach hurt. Do you remember when this same thing happened to Urban?
I paged Dr. "Jack".......
"Gosh, Mellissa. You've got two that are allergic to penicillin. Keep that stuff out of your house. And, I remember you saying that Emerson hasn't ever had an antibiotic...in my opinion, don't let him have penicillin when he needs one. Save yourself and him the hassle."
The "bestest day ever" was still that when the kids went to bed. I was worried that Ida may need a day to monitor the progress of the rash but Dr. "Jack" okayed all the anticipated activities which made me extremely excited and happy for Ida. She was happy as well, talking to Emerson way past bedtime.
This morning things went in reverse as far as the "bestest day ever" goes, with one of the cousins becoming very blotchy during the night and another getting a fevery cold. So, sleep-over plans have been rescheduled for the end of March. The cousins four are fairing well with the news.
