Hand Foot Mouth

Aiden woke up in the middle of the night Monday crying.  "My mouf huwrts mom!" He wimpered through the night and we headed to see the pedeatrician the next morning.  He was such a good little guy.  The nurse said where does your mouth hurt (I still am assuming he has a sore throat)  He pulls down his lip to reveal these little sores covering it.  I wanted to cry.  I could tell how much pain he was in.  He had a rash I had noticed to.  Yep. you guessed it. Hand foot mouth disease.  So I have spent the past two days locked in the house with this sick little guy trying to nurse him to health.  He is getting better but continues to milk it for all that he can get:) Pray that I dont lost my patience or my mind.  For it is being tested this week! Thank you for all that entered the giveaway I am leaving it up until the end of the week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Did they tell you to take Maalox and kids' Benedryl, mix half and half and keep in the fridge. Then "paint" the sores up to four times a day with a q-tip?

My guy had a viral rash and they told me to do that if got got mouth sores. He didn't, but I was prepared.

Hope your guy is doing better.

A few of my favorite things!
