She woke up yesterday morning with red cheeks. You know how when you wake up sometimes you have a red face? And then it goes away. Well she woke up around 6:30 / 7:00. We were getting ready to go to my niece Riley's birthday party. Around 10:00 I called David to tell him what was going on. I took a few pictures of her face & he took a peek at them. Unfortunately, we decided that going to the birthday party was out. We had one very unhappy little girl.
In the end I called the pediatrician's office to ask if we needed to do anything or even come in for a visit. Everyone's favorite nurse called us back to answer my questions. I described Erin's face to her, & she told me that Erin has what is called Fifth Disease. Erin is NOT contagious at all. Actually, the child is contagious up until the rash comes out but now that the rash is out, we have the all clear. She'll have the rash anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks, & then it should go away.
