When peeps from Northern CA come to visit me in So CA, they often question the traffic in the area.  Why is everyone stopped, is there an accident? They try to find a REASON for all of the people sitting on the road going nowhere.  I try to explain that there are too many people living in So CA so there is just unexplainable traffic.  I understand the feeling of wanting an explanation for everything.  So after all of the theories on LO.

I THINK we have figured out what is going on.  She has roseola or sixth disease which brings on a rapid temperature, sometimes convulsions (febrile seizures), fatigue, loss of appetite, diarrhea and a rash after the fever subsides.  Cue rash which we discovered all over her last night.  Oh and massive irritability, check! Check to all of the above. The other night she was throwing CDs at me like a ninja star.  The pediatrician who finally came back from vacation thinks it is roseola and I concur. OR it is menopause.  We had one hour of screaming last night which was an improvement over previous evenings.   They can also have a sore throat which may have been the reflux I was hearing.  So there you have it, a reason for the madness.
