hand foot and mouth

Maya had been grumpy for a few days and then not sleeping very well at night, making me grumpy too.  I was starting to worry that she was getting sick, again.  Then last Monday I noticed red bumps all over her hands, mouth, feet and legs.  I called our doctor and the nurse said she probably had Hand Foot and Mouth, a mild virus that often gets passed around pre-schools.  I started to envision spending at least 2 weeks avoiding social interactions.  Thankfully the very next day the spots were almost gone.  We are all grateful for the blessing.

  1. We have had that and it was terrible. Kelton had it for about a week and he was SO sick. I am glad that your infection was on the mild end.
