      He’s pretty lively, was a bit sick before the rash came though. But itchy, poor lamb.

      Hope so too as although he’s not infectious, he’s not very welcome out in public and has been too itchy for preschool – aaarrgghh!!

      Much better by Thursday, his face is still blotchy but not so puffy: he’s charging around like a maniac!

      Funny old illness as the kids look shocking, but don’t really feel too ill.

    I was going to say hope he feels better soon, then I saw the rest of the pictures and saw that he seems to be ‘feeling’ fine! Looks like he is in great spirits, just a tad rash-y! Hope that the rest of you don’t get it! Happy wordless wednesday, nice to see you playing along! And thanks for you comments on my blog last week – the weekend was quite hectic, so i didn’t get a chance to respond earlier!

      He’s pretty OK, but still looking very scrofulous this arvo. Hope he’s looking better soon. Papaya cream does help the itch.

    He seems to be taking it all quite well. Thankfully children usually tolerate illness reasonably well.
