Well, Sammy’s mysterious illness has been all but confirmed as Roseola, or “Baby Measles”. Roseola “is a benign disease of children, generally under two years old, whose manifestations are usually limited to a transient rash that occurs following a fever of about three day’s duration.” We haven’t been back to the doctor, but that description sums up our experience perfectly. My Mom was the first to call it in the comments on our post over the weekend, and Glenna seconded it. Thank you both for sharing your Dr. Mom wisdom!

Here are some photos of Sammy in all his splotchy glory:
