Hand Foot and What Now?

I have to say hands down the worst name for a virus is Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. Like really? You had to put the word disease in there? Thanks. 

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease... we've got it. Well Lily has it, but that doesn't mean Ryan and I aren't feeling the effects. The worst part is that she has painful sores in her mouth which means she isn't eating. Poor kid.

{My mouf hurts.}

About two weeks ago Lily came down with a cold and just as we thought we were coming out of it BAM! Disease. I think her immune system was down and her wonderful mother took her on some errands and that is when she picked up this virus. Which leads me to another discovery... THAT is what they meant by Beyond! I guess Bed, Bath and Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease was just too long for the sign.

    Mason had that awful virus :( And the worst part is that there's nothing you can do for it, but let it run it's course. Our Pedi suggested giving Benadryl to help with the pain/itching. It seemed to help Mason. My husband ended up getting all of the symptoms as well. It lasted about 4-5 days for both of them. Hope your precious one gets over it quick.

    And I totally know what you mean by the word "disease". When our Pedi told us that my heart dropped! Why can't they just call it what it is?? A VIRUS!
