The Year of Strange Diseases.

So, we have now been blessed with Hand/Foot/Mouth Disease.

We had a great night last night. Went to the park, then decided to take the kids out for ice cream. On the way there, Haley started acting funny and said she was sick. OF course, she still wanted ice cream. But the second that was over, she was shivering and just asking to go home and go to bed. CLUE #1. So we get her home and put her in bed. "Can I have a bowl by my bed in case I throw up? " CLUE #2 Fever. CLUE #3.

Luckily, I had an appointment already scheduled for today (with our new doctor that I LOVE), and she does in fact of HFM Disease.

She asked to go home and go to bed. So sad.

So what is a mom to do? Enjoy some comfort food...I made a soy hot dog (don't make fun of me Gina).. Baked some French Fries...poured a Diet Coke....and turned on the View.

I'm not Gina, so can I make fun of you for eating a soy hot dog?

but seriously..sorry about Haley. sounds like a bummer.

Since my kid may have been the one to infect yours...I will not make fun of you for the soy dog.

A soy dog? What the heck?!!!

ok...Annie had HFM. I'm sorry! She was about Lexi's age. I just remember her walking around on her toes cuz the bottom of her feet hurt. You've definitely had a year of weird childhood ailments. Hope you feel better soon Haley Beth! :)

OH NO! We have had that is it THE WORST! I feel so badly for her AND you.

And if soy is comfort food to you then you have issues. But I would never make fun of you when your child is sick. Please let me know when she is feeling better. Then I will have plenty to say!

Oh no! That went around badly last fall around here. It is not fun, and it will be a miracle if Lexi doesn't get it, because it is so contagious. Oh, look, I'm Debbie Downer. Anyway,I'm so sorry, and we'll be praying for you!
