Well, it appears that Miss Mad was actually telling the truth. The rash is actually showing from an infected gland, coming from an infected mozzie bite at the back of her leg (which has become a school sore (Impetago). So she is now on antibiotics to kill it off.
Zac is also on antibiotics now for the ick tooth, and is booked in to the dentist in 2 weeks to get the tooth out. We could have had an appointment next week, but he has exams all week. Drats. Oh well, at least they squeezed us in as soon as they could.
Fingers crossed no more happens today.
