Friday morning: not so productive appt. w/ Pediatrician's partner...
It may be mono.
It may be strep.
It may be both.
It may be neither.
Saturday: the rash appeared.
I think it's strep/scarlet fever.
His right tonsil is AWFUL, and swollen beyond the mid-point of his throat.
Called the hospital about the strep culture.
Not back yet.
Sunday: still rash.
I still think it's strep/scarlet fever.
Rikki mentioned that it may be roseola. It may be, but I just...I don't think so. I could very well be wrong, but I think it's strep/scarlet fever.
We'll probably never know, and to be perfectly honest---the pediatrician's partner pissed us off. I have no idea when he expects my child to be well, or when to return for medical treatment IF my child doesn't get well. I mean---his tonsil----just....what? If it's not better in 2 weeks consult a surgeon to cut it out? What!?
Okay....don't get me started on the pediatrician's partner. I could b*tch for hours about this, although I already have to just about every set of ears that would listen.
