Slap Face

We just took Ethan to the Urgent Care. He woke up yesterday with a small rash on his face. We went to Big Kahunas and it seemed to get worse as the day went on. At first I thought I might not have gotten enough sun screen but it was very blotchy. On Sunday his face was bright red and after church we noticed he had the rash all over his body. We took him to get checked out since he starts Kindergarten tomorrow and we didn't want him to miss his first day. (I don't think that would be a good start to his first year.) As soon as the nurse saw him, she said he had definitely had the 5th disease or also called slap face (a viral infection). He is no longer contagious so he will not miss his first day of school. We now have to keep an eye on Aiden to see if he gets it. We will keep our fingers crossed that it skips him.
