Calling Dr. Google

Thanks for all the rash advice.

Both Mr. Peeveme and I searched Dr. Google and independently came up with the diagnosis of slap cheek disease for Picconlina. It's harmless unless, of course, a pregnant woman gets it.

But after a little more research and a call to my practitioner, we have determined that Bambina is in no danger since I did not get it and even if I did there is only a slight chance of fetal anemia if the mother gets a bad infection in the first trimester. And there is nothing they can actually DO about it other than monitor. But since I never got's a mute point.

After a little Hydro cortisone cream and some A&D ointment Piccolina's face much better.

Glad to hear Piccolina's face is much better and that it won't have any impact on Bambina. I just looked at your ticker - 17 days - that's crazy! I'm so excited for you - I'm sure you are more than ready for Bambina to arrive.

I'm glad to hear that her face is getting better. Poor thing.

How's Mr. Peeveme hanging in there?!!

Alas, Mr. Peeveme's sorry state remains unchanged.
