Well, those that know me here, know that I am pretty easy going. But I have to say that there is a nurse in Birmingham Alabama that I would love to get my hands on. Two days ago, my wife called the Dr. and told them that my daughter had a red sore through with white pollups on her tonsills. Well, the nurse said " that is just a virual problem. It will go away in a day or two. Well, two days later. She has scarlet fever. Man, I am pissed. Yea, it is up to us as parents to take her to the Dr. over an hour away, but it is their responsiblity to say "you need to bring her in." Question, have any of you ever had, or had children who have had scarlet fever? What can I expect, and just how serious is it?
