"Sooooo my daughter might have measles. "


  

          

Her immunizations are up to date, but that second shot for measles wasn’t due until after she turned 4. The doctor called her a ‘prospective case’ because enough symptoms- including the obvious, a nasty rash that covering the top of her body, which has since spread to her legs-are present to warrant a test. That whole urgent care visit was a nightmare. We couldn’t get her to hold still in the slightest to draw blood, so my poor baby got stuck three times.

She’s a fighter. Not sure what else I could have done aside from strapping her to a gurney. It didn’t help that the nurse was nervous as all hell after the first one, but I digress. We eventually had to roll with a urine sample and a swab from the back of her throat. The urine sample proved difficult enough to obtain from a girl considering the mechanics, and that long ass swab wasn’t exactly a welcome site to a girl who just got poked three times by a needle.

My wife had to get a test as well due to the pregnancy, so they’re both confined to the house until results come in. My wife was immunized so the assumption is that results for her and the baby will be fine.

I got it around 6 or 7(was vaccinated) and it passed pretty easily, pretty quickly.
So here's hoping IF anyone's sick, it's a mild case.

Had this happened after the second shot, I'd say you had an interesting point.

Plus, I'm holding out hope this is just some generic rash and fever. I really want no parts of my daughter dealing with a near-dead disease that’s just made a comeback. It does seem to add up though.

but ~3% of those who are vaccinated do not respond to the vaccine and remain susceptible to the disease.

Here's to a swift and full recovery for your daughter.

It's an awful lot of kids shows, kids songs, coloring. It's been one day and she bored out of her mind, plus I kind of have to give my daughter priority for the first few hours after work.

was there any protocols in place at urgent care. i thought if they suspected measles your not supposed to go inside or something.
they are supposed to triage outside.
any hints where she might have contracted.
prayers man.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

Which is weird, since the urgent care location is inside of a building and you have to take an indoor hallway to get there. So we stopped, called, and waited.

Thing is....Since this is airborne, guess what? We’re just sitting there for 5 minutes in a small hallway where any coughing, sneezing, or general breathing is going to serve as a setup for literally everyone else who has to work through there. It didn’t make any sense whatsoever. That sign should be outside if that’s the protocol.
At any rate they came and brought us duck masks to cover our faces, so at least I got to spend some time quacking it up with my daughter. She enjoyed them for a while at least.

As far as where she may have contracted, it’s either daycare or a birthday party we went to last Sunday. My money is on the birthday party since the daycare is required to have immunizations up to date, and if there are kids there with parents on some religious kick who refused to immunize, I’d like to think we’d have been notified of something like that. I’m not going to notify my friends from the party until I find out for sure, because there’s no sense in causing more panic unless it’s absolutely necessary.

the vaccinations have to be done at least a year after the previous vaccinations. So call and make sure your child can get the next set of shots.

I fucked up one year and made an appointment with my son 2 months after his bday which was his normal appointment/vax schedule. So the following year I tried to get back on track but they wouldnt let him take any vaccinations until a year after his new date.

35. "My wife is negative. Urine test for my daughter is negative. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

My wife is negative. Urine test for my daughter came back negative.

Still waiting on the results from the swab, so we’re not out of the woods just yet. I’m annoyed by a few things. First, we had to call public health. I suppose it can be argued that they were waiting for all the tests to come back before calling, but considering the fact that my wife has had to take four straight days of sick leave time from work, it would have been nice of them to make that call instead of us having to call them for the result.

The other thing is that people in my office had a tantrum over it. The doctor cleared me, public health cleared me, and management says that’s enough. What pissed me off wasn’t their panic, but the fact that this was my unit that had the problem. One of these people was supposedly a friend of mine, and she never once said she was uncomfortable sitting near me. Not once. In fact, nobody has said a word to that effect. Nobody.

I’m medically clear. I’m immune. The public health official laughed when my supervisor told her about the panic, and apparently the exact wording was: he doesn’t have it and he can’t give anyone something he doesn’t have.

The truth is this: I’m medically cleared. The doctor says I’m good. Public health says I’m good. This area has had a good handful of cases. I work with the public. NEWSFLASH, motherfuckers, they’re not taking this situation lightly.

So, again, I’m medically cleared. I’m immune. I can’t give them something I don’t have. I’m here because I have to manage my time off due to the impending birth of my son in two fucking months. I’m here to make sure nobody else gets stuck with my fucking case load while I’m out.

Thing is, I FUCKING GET IT. 100%. I understand the panic. What I don’t understand is the complete lack of support. People want to do potlucks every month and pass around cards and request donations when a relative dies or whatever, yet when I get put in a tough position that every single one of them could just as easily find themselves in, where I don’t even WANT to fucking come in, like I wouldn’t rather be home with my family right now…… and zero support. Nobody has my fucking back. My supervisor does, which is a very pleasant surprise, but nobody else. Sorry, but that’s fucked up. At a minimum, talk to me. Say something. Let me know, ask questions, fucking say something. I’m human. Don’t treat me like a gotdamned leper. I get the ‘what’ 100%, but the ‘how’ definitely bothers me.

It’s this type of shit that makes me want keep 100% to myself at work. I’ve made genuine friends at work- here included- but damn if this shit doesn’t reinforce my apathetic worldview that people really, truly don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves.

Motherfuckers wonder why I always have a chip on my shoulder, why I have a ‘me against the world’ air about me, and shit like this is why. I’ve tried to change that over the years but things like this make me think I was on the right track to begin with. Yeah, I’m being sensitive, I’m sure people will even call me a baby for it. So be it. It’s no two ways for me though, and I’m able to either allow myself such emotions or I’m a fucking icebox to the world…. And that’s where people always seem to wonder what my problem is.


Thank god it’s Friday, thank god my wife and unborn son are good, and thank god my daughter is at least half way in the clear, but motherfuuuuuuuuuuck these people I spend that 50 hours a week with. Typically, I would have updated my coworkers about the new developments. This time I just told my supervisor. She can let them know.

the other stuff man, yeah it sucks but there is nothing you can do about it so you gotta let the bullshit blow in the breeze. dissecting it is just going to upset you and in the end you're the only one who will suffer for it.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

45. "100% clear of Measles. "

We got final confirmation Saturday morning and took her to urgent care the same day for a follow up. I kind of wish we had this doctor to begin with because he (correctly) noted that this rash is very much like sand paper, and that is not something normally associated with measles.

We tried to get a new swab to rule out strep/scarlet fever, but that was impossible. She actually freaked out when we took her temperature and pulse. She flipped when she saw the building we were pulling into. She really, really hates doctors right now after the previous fiasco, poor thing. So he just said to hell with it after about 30 minutes of every tactic imaginable and prescribed some amoxicillin.

So the rash is going down slowly but surely. The downside? I got nailed with the fucking flu Saturday morning. I slept through most of Saturday/Sunday, and I'm still pretty fucked up today. Thankfully she's cool lying down, napping, resting and watching tv right now. She's a pretty active kid and I hate to rely so heavily on the tv as a babysitter I just don't have the energy right now. Plus... it just plain hurts to move. lol. As an aside, Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi are her absolute favorites and those two shows are very information dense. She learns an awful lot from those shows so there is that I suppose.

But yeah. Nothing like good old fashioned illness to keep a family united.

Oh, and a thousand thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. It's greatly appreciated.

She will get over the doctor fear soon
Does she have a pediatrician?
If so, have her see a doctor she is familiar with
It will calm her nerves
