Rotavirus...

Poor Seth is sick again! He's had trouble for a couple months with staying healthy. He started on Saturday with a fever, and tired, and just not acting like himself. So last night after a couple days home from school, and just laying around with a low grade fever, I took him to the pediatrician. She said he probably has a rotavirus. Here is what I found about it on the internet:

Signs and Symptoms
Children with a rotavirus infection have
fever, nausea, and vomiting, which are often followed by abdominal cramps and frequent, watery diarrhea. Children who are infected may also have a cough and runny nose. As with all viruses, though, some rotavirus infections cause few or no symptoms, especially in adults.

So we need to be careful and make sure we're washing our hands a lot and we dissinfected everything last night. Fun Fun. I just hope he gets better soon.

AHH man, poor Seth...and what a pain for you guys too! They have a new vaccination (?) or something that Bryn got at the doctor the last two times for Rotavirus, let's hope it works.
