I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well blog fam...this has been a LONNNNGGGG week and I'm glad it's over!!!
After me and my son got back on Sunday he was fine. I was laying on my couch watching t.v. and wouldn't you know he started running a fever outta no where. So I get up and give him the Motrin immediately. Well by the end of the nite he is burning up. OOOOOKKKK? Where the hell did this come from? So his father comes to watch him while I go to work, and I come home to check on him and he's still burning up and now his body is turning red. And he pretty much slept the WHOLE DAY!!! HUH? So I'm like if this doesn't calm down tonite, I gotta take him to the Dr. I call the Dr. on Tuesday and get him in and they tell me he has strep and Scarlet Fever Rash!!!! OHMIGOD!!! I am so thankful that I took him in. My poor guy suffered too much for a 4 year old. Well as the day was going on, my throat started hurting as well, so I made a trip to find out that my strep test came back false-negative, but my tonsils were bright red and my glands were swollen. So I was on my way to strep throat. So the Dr.'s gave us both Amoxicillan. And the meds are supposed to clear up his rash and I guess it was working at drying it out cuz he suffered Tuesday nite. He couldn't get comfortable to save his life cuz it was itching him so bad. He tried sleeping in his bed, sleeping with me, sleeping on the couch, sleeping on the floor, and sleeping on the recliner. I first rubbed him with vaseline until I got his skin coated and that relieved him for a short time, then it was bothering him again. It was so bad that I think it was making him crazy. So then I get out the heavy cream and rub him down some more and just keep rubbing him to stop him from itching. That finally worked and we got to bed around 3-4 in the morning. Needless to say, I was tired as HELL!!!
But now we are feeling much better, but his skin is still itchy and blotchy looking and it does feel like sand paper. My voice is kindy raspy (kinda sexy if you ask me), but my throat is not bothering me too much. But I'm glad he is back to his normal bad ass self, my poor boo!!!
But or course since him and his cousin were hanging with each other Saturday nite and Sunday afternoon, my sista went thru the same thing with my nephew and they caught it before he got the rash. But now my neice has got it!!!!! DAMN!!!!
