Hives :(

Thursday, Evan woke up in the middle of the night with a fever and throwing up. We kept him home from school Friday thinking he had the flu. We weren't surprised because a few other kids in his day care also had the flu. He only threw up a few more times during the day Friday, so we thought he must have just had a mild bug. Then when I was giving him a bath Friday night I noticed that he was starting to get a forward to 4am and realize that he has hives. By 5am he was very uncomfortable and scratching like crazy so we took him to the ER. They said it was probably from his antibiotic he had just finished from his ear infection and the fever and vomiting were also probably from the reaction. So he is now on a steroid and doing much better. The hives still come back at night so we are not sleeping well. So I guess we can cross amoxicillin off our list of future antibiotics. Hopefully THIS is now the last illness until spring!

Here he is right before we went to the ER.....I am bummed that I forgot to take the camera to the hosptal.....
Here he is about 3 hours after the steroid so the rash is a little better.

This is how bad his eyes still looked this morning.
