The weekend wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and by Monday all was better and we had a great Memorial Day with great weather.
Here's what I learned about hand, foot and mouth:
1: Your child can have it for up to two weeks and be shedding it before any symptoms occur.
2: There is no way to really know it is hand, foot and mouth before it is too late.
3: The process of symptoms is fever, sore throat, spots.
5: By the time the fever presents itself you aren't really contagious anymore.
4: The older you are the less worse it is. For adults it is a mild cold. (I never got sick.) Eva got a couple very light spots on her feet and Scarlett got a lot of bad spots where some on her feet turned to blisters.
5: It is a virus so the only thing you can do is pain management.
6: It lasts 3-5 days. Sore throat day was the worst for Scarlett, fever day was the worst for Eva.
Apparently hand, foot and mouth is pretty bad this year so watch out.
I am so glad I didn't get sick.
So for Memorial Day we had a nice BBQ and just hung out.
Have I mentioned I love snow cones? I Instagram them every chance I get.
Lame post I know but I thought maybe someone out there would want to know.
