A Little Too Much Adventure

Life wouldn't be fun without a little adventure. That's kinda our motto lately with this whole moving thing. Well, I believe that sometimes there can be a little too much adventure. Take this story for example:

We woke up Saturday to major thunderstorms and torrential downpours of rain. So t-ball was canceled. However, we still had fun in sight with the prospect of meeting Dad & Nani for lunch at Stevi B's Pizza. We stayed there a lot longer than expected when the rain came down so hard no one was willing to leave...including us.

Got home, got Lizzy in bed for a nap, and watched some TV. That's when I noticed Andrew had some strange bumps covering ever single piece of his entire body. Emily was over, & we promptly put Andrew in a bath. Some FB friends suggested that I take him to our local fire station to get a paramedic to tell us what the deal was. The paramedic said to take him to the ER at Scottish Rite by Northside so off I drove with Lizzy, Em, and Andrew in tow.

I love the ER there. We were in and out in 2 hours flat. Andrew has viral exanthem which is basically a rash associated with a virus. The virus had passed, but the rash was the after effects thus non-contagious. Doc said Lizzy would likely not even get it, and so far we are all just fine.

The rash is still freakishly covering his entire body including his palms and the bottoms of his little feet. It should go away within 3-5 days. Weird! I'd show you a pic, but you can't see it unless you look at him closely. It's the strangest thing I've ever seen!

Thanks, Em for being there for us during our fiasco and for taking such great care of us on Saturday even when you weren't feeling well yourself. I'll never forget how you got Andrew his milk, Lizzy her nugget, Andrew his napkin and kept me stocked with fries. Ya had to be there, but it was a hoot! You'll make a good Mommy one day...when you move to Florida with us and find Mr. Right :)
