It was a rough week for the Bear family. First, Boy Bear got cough, cold, then moderate grade fever. Then, when it seemed that he was getting better, Girl Bear suddenly had convulsions. It turned out that she had fever at the time of the seizure. Papa Bear and Mama Bear had to bring her to the emergency room.
The fever climbed p to 39.9 degrees with no obvious focus of infection. CBC and urinalysis were not suggestive of bacterial infection. Since Boy Bear got rashes the day after Girl Bear got admitted, we began to suspect roseola infantum.
After more than 3 days of fever, the rashes finally appeared and the temperature went down. What a relief to know that it’s nothing serious!
