I Repeat: We DO NOT Have the Mumps!!!

The day after we got back from Yuba, Ash woke up looking pretty scary. Lets just say his face was swollen not beyond recognition, but definitely to the point of near-deformity. I'm not overreacting-look at the picture! Needless to say, it freaked me out and we ran to see the doctor. "Mumps," he said. No way! We are all immunized! Who gets the mumps?! Seriously, I didn't think they even really existed anymore. I've never know ANYONE who was sick with the mumps. The Dr. sent us for a blood test and we had to sweat it out for four days- freaking out anyone with small children who might be capable of contracting our disease, by the way-to find out its NOT THE MUMPS! Hooray! What did he have? Good question. Thankfully whatever it was is now gone. And no, Broc, I don't know what's up with my disease-ridden family:)

Poor baby. That is so sad. Did they suggest allergy testing? My son is allergic to grasses. We first noticed it because his face was swollen.
