Luke came down with hand, foot and mouth this week.
It was the absolute worst!
William and Sam got it once, years ago, and I remember thinking at the time, that it was the worst thing my kids had experienced up to that point. Horrible.
It was no different with Luke.
His poor little mouth (inside and out)broke out with nasty, painful blisters all over. His fingers, palms, feet, legs, and toes also had red, pussy, swollen blisters all over them as well.
It was a good, solid week of Luke up all night, crying all day, having to be carried everywhere (because the blisters on his feet were so painful), and pretty much misery for all involved.
I hate that stuff like the plague, and seriously hope we never, ever see it in our house again.
Luke is doing better now, and his blisters are scabbing over. We are all definitely worn down, and exhausted from it all though.
