Head, shoulders knees and toes...

Hand, Foot, Feet and Mouth

























Disease!

Yup, Ayden got Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. It started with a fever of 102.5, the fever went down and the rash came on. He's been a real trooper though and not too cranky. It's ugly as anything though, don't you think? Now, to top it off, I think he has a cold. His fever went away but now he's coughing, stuffy (as you can see above, sorry) and seems to have another low-grade fever. We're lucky though because he is playing well and eating fairly well. I'm giving in on all his 'juice' requests though and that will come back to haunt me, I'm sure. We were slackers though and missed church because I read that adults can carry it with no symptoms and children under 10 were very susceptible. I figured we were all sharing food and kisses with him before we realized what he had so several of us were carrying it around. I figured it'd be safer just to stay home. I know, slacker! LOL

Been through that a couple times. If I remember right the cold symptoms go along with it. Sorry to hear it. We skipped church. 4out7 kids had snot. Thought we wouldn't share. Hey send me your e-mail, I don't have it. that way I don't have to ramble on your comments.
