Just a quick blurb on Julius’ latest illness … Yesterday morning I noticed 3 red spots across his chest .. not too alarming (he also had no temperature) but sure something to keep an eye on … then after his nap I checked again … and there were some more, 2 on his neck, one hidden in his hair and he had a slight fever of 37.9°C
I called our doctor and he came by to check on Julius. Usually that is probably not necessary (since there is not much one can do about chicken pox, other than keeping the kid from scratching and trying to not infect other kids) … but since Julius still has a slimed up respiratory system we decided that a closer look might be in order.
So, we are back to giving him all kinds of drops now and just keep a very close eye on him. He seems to be taking it quite well so far. But he woke up tossing and turning at 3:30 AM this morning.
Any good ideas out there other than confining his hands into socks to avoid scratching? I already trimmed his nails as short as possible.
