Well, not scarlet itself, but a baby toasting fever none-the-less. I admit, while I was worried about her having a cold (worried as in…do we need to run out for more tissues again?), a fever has generated more worry than I’m comfortable with.
And of course, this brings our somewhat spotty knowledge of pregnancy to the forefront again. Do we call the OB or the GP? We’ve decided to go with the OB and let them direct us back to our family doctor. Then we’ve at least covered all the bases. While there’s not much to be done, we’ll know how much Tylenol can be aimed at the fever without damaging anything.
So, fair warning, don’t inhale in her direction.
