Thank you everyone for your opinions and concern. Sorry we left everyone hanging. Abby is better today. She only woke up once last night and I brought her into my bed where she slept the rest of the night until she woke at 630 am (OUCH). She is in good spirits and I really can't even see the rash on her legs anymore. It is still on her face but appears less and much more lighter. I gave her benadryl this morning and tonight at bedtime but there has been minimal scratching. I also skipped her bath tonight since it seemed to bother her last night. Everything points to the mmr shot. Evidently if it is going to happen (the rash) it happens about now but can appear up to 30 days after the shot. There is no treatment for it. You just wait it out and it fades away over several days. Here is a picture of her tonight before bed. See she looks much better :) (She looks so serious cuz she is watching a new Little Einstein Video.)
Also I always hold her before bed and give her a bottle. I just put her down to snap the photo.
I did call her pediatricians office today. I was on hold for at least 20 minutes before I got to speak with an actual person. It was the receptionist. She took a message to have the triage nurse call me back an let me know if I needed to bring her in or not. That was at 130 PM. They called back at 530 PM and somehow I missed it. They left me a number to call for the on call nurse after telling me that it was more then likely the mmr shot. So I call it and get a recording. First it tells me to pick my insurance and press that number, then to enter my number where I can be reached, then for me to leave a detailed message regarding my question, and then it ends by telling me my insurance may be charged 10 dollars for the call but someone will call me back. I decided to hang up at that point. Abby is fine and has been checked out by my brother n law who is a GP MD. I will call again tomorrow (Office) and talk to the nurse to double check on if they want to see her. It really irks me that they were so hard to get in touch with tho. Maybe all peds offices are like that???
Anyhoo.... just to show you all that my baby is okay. I thought I would add this video to this post. I'll call it "Abby and the cat food". You can guess what is coming :0
After I turned off the camera she put her whole fist in the water bowl and was stirring her concoction. At least she didn't eat any.......
