My Poor Baby!

Will is sick. I noticed that he had a few bumps on his leg the day before Thanksgiving, but didn't think too much about them. Thanksgiving morning he woke up with a fever and bumps all over. The bumps continued to spread and get larger throughout the day. By Friday morning, he looked like this:

I took him to the doctor later Friday morning and he said that Will had erythema multiforme minor. Basically, this means that Will had a virus that caused the fever (and a runny nose) and that his body reacted to the virus by getting this rash. Fortunately, the fever and runny nose should be gone within a few days. Unfortunately, the rash may hang around for a few weeks.

Wow, that is quite a rash Will. I am so thankful you are feeling better! Mommy promises we will get together soon if everyone stays well!
