Weekend Recap | Adults get Hand, Foot, Mouth too... trust me.

Monday, January 25, 2016

Happy Monday!  I am linking up with Katie for my weekend recap!

I have absolutely zero pictures from this weekend...zero.  Want to know why?  Because, Ryan AND I have the good ole Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease.  Yes, you read right.  I have it too!

Thanks to the perks of daycare, Ryan started having cold like symptoms early in the weekend and then some red bumps on his rear. By Sunday, I had rash ALL OVER MY ENTIRE BODY.  I freaked, thought it was an allergic reaction to something and immediately ran to Urgent Care where they took one glance at me and said "Hand, Foot, Mouth."

I laughed, said "How in the world did I get that," and the doc quickly confirmed..."Your son."  Ryan wasn't showing extreme signs and his rear looked like an early diaper rashy stage.  Nope, he too had HFM.  By the end of the day yesterday, his face started breaking out into rash too.

Great, just great.  What is funny is the fact that I, the adult, have an extreme case and my toddler doesn't. No fever, no blisters, etc.  (I say that and then I will jinx myself.)

See why I didn't take any pictures??

But since I am sure you are dying for a picture, I figured I would educate you on some HFM facts since I didn't know too much about it until my body struck gold.

Too bad I couldn't find an image that clearly outlined adults getting it.

What's frustrating is the fact that on Friday, Ryan gets ear tubes put in and we must, must, must be getting over this illness by then.  Doc says as long as there is no fever, then the surgery can continue... My hope is that since his case isn't as severe as mine, that he will get over it fairly quickly.

Prayers for that...

Well, now I will leave you with the disgusting thought in your head of a son and mommy sitting at home with HFM and the mommy having a nasty rash from head to toe that itches worse than getting rolling around in a pool of mosquitoes naked. Get the picture?

And now, you can thank your lucky stars I didn't share any pictures with you.

Tata for now,
