So apparently Mackenzie didn't have strep throat after all. Her nurse called me on Wednesday to say that her overnight culture came back negative and that she didn't need to take her medication anymore. The rash appeared the day after she went to the doctor, so she couldn't help me with that one except to say use lotion if it bothers her. Since all parents with internet access become doctors...we diagnosed Mackenzie with either Fifth Disease or Roseola. In the end, I'm not sure what she had because her rash didn't seem to match either of the disease descriptions fully. But none of it really matters because she is all better now! No rash, no fever and we get to go to church in a little while! Woohoo!
