Anyway, we went to the doctor, and he thinks it was the "birthday party exposure" from Friday where I heard there was a child who had roseola recently. Drew's already had that so I thought he was immune, but the doctor said there are many summer viruses that include a fever and a rash and sometimes they call it roseola when it is not actually the specific roseola virus. He wanted to do a blood culture "just to be safe" but I objected to that idea. He had what most would consider a low fever and I didn't want to make him undergo a painful stick. We agreed that if he was still feverish today I would call and we might go back in. He was feverish all day yesterday and kept telling me he wanted to go swimming. (I ended up giving him three baths instead.) The nurse on the phone heard him say it and then the doctor was laughing because he said it through our entire visit. He also kept saying "I'm hot" and "I have shark jammies." He slept well last night with motrin and so far this morning seems ok. We will watch and wait and hope it goes away all by itself.
This was our first doctor visit since Dr. P left. We saw Dr. Bullen who is our next favorite at that practice so that was good. We also got a chance to meet Dr. Jain who is replacing Dr. P. We just barely met her, but she seems nice and I'm glad I've at least got a face to put with her name.
