Daycare just called and they think Alex has HFM. He had a HIGH fever on Sunday, and urgent care diagnosed him with an ear infection. We stayed home yesterday, at which point I noticed spots all over him. Called the pedi who thought it was just a reaction to the high fever.
Daycare just called - they said that he can stay, and will call me again if he seems to be in pain and needs tylenol. (I have some meetings today, but will cut out early.)
My dilemma is around my parents coming this weekend (Friday) and staying with us. My dad is in remission, so he has a compromised immune system. I have a call into the pedi to get her take, but how contageous is this? Should I get my parents a hotel room instead?
Also, what can I expect from HFM for Alex? Are we all going to get it? I hate the name - it just sounds gross.
