Day 7: Well today was a difficult day! In the morning we noticed that Oliver had more spots on his body, like little pimples, and because the doctor told us that it could be Chicken Pox, we decided to take him back to the doctor. On a good note he didn't have high fever anymore.

After looking at Oliver for a bit, doctor said that he is "98% sure that it is Chicken Pox and Oliver would need to be quarantined and possibly will not be allowed to fly home". He said that we have to go to the Riviera Mayan hospital to see a children's doctor. After hearing all this I didn't feel so great.

One thing I have to say is that Ambulance and Hospital services here are great! Here we are driving to the hospital in the ambulance, going 160 km/h through a corner, needless to say we got there in no time!

After Oliver was examined by a doctor, we were told that he does NOT have Chicken Pox and this is a throat infection that he probably got on the way to Mexico and that what is causing the rash on his body. Doctor said that we should not have any problems flying home when the time will come and that Oliver should start feeling much better much sooner than I thought. We had to buy a spray for Oliver's throat and I guess we will see how it will go :)

With this being one of the most difficult days here at the resort it really turned out to also be one of the best. Oliver did great all day! In the evening all three of us went swimming and Oliver did many new interesting things in the water, than had a great dinner and we all had a wonderful evening. we really are so blessed to have such a nice little boy!
