Well, Anson has Scarlet Fever. He was tested today and Dave has Strep as well. Dave is actually more serious due to him being immune-compromised, so he is actually more sick than Anson. It's alarming for several reasons. First, Anson's throat looks fine. He has a rash to his torso, neck and arms. He has had a slight temperature, but nothing major. I took him in today because there has been some cases in the school systems and the rash was not getting any better. Scarlet Fever is very serious if not treated, causing permanent heart damage. So, I have to stay home the rest of the week because Dave can't be exposed more than he has already been. I hate calling off work, but I am left no choice without family close by. Makes me miss having that support, that's for sure. I'm hoping Dave turns a corner tomorrow and doesn't get any worse. Last time he had throat lesions, it earned him 2 weeks of steroids and antibiotics. And, it's midterm week..........my head hurts.
