Well, we’ve got a diagnosis: Parvovirus.


Or, that is to say, Jenni’s got a diagnosis, though unconfirmed. They drained some blood for testing and will let her know, but the symptoms certainly add up.


That’s the good news: she knows what it is, and knows that it isn’t really bad. In fact, it’s very common and highly contagious in children. And for kids, once you get it, you can’t get it again. So apparently Jenni’s never had it.


The bad news is that it’s a virus, so there isn’t a treatment. So Jenni’s got to let it run its course, which could take days or a couple of weeks. It isn’t going to be pleasant or fun for her, especially on top of everything else that life throws her way. So just send her your love and prayers, please. I’ll try to take care of everything else that I can.


See you tomorrow.
