Tired and my kids are dropping (sick) like flies!
I'm so tired. My 2yo has been restless at night due to illness since last Thursday. I took him to the doc and he thinks he has Hand, Foot and Mouth with a secondary (possibly) staph infection in his diaper area. He said HF & M is going around locally. He just got his first spots on his hand and foot today, but has had a nasty diaper rash since Friday. He had high fever all day on Friday, but it broke Saturday mid-day. Apparently, that's how HF & M starts and the diaper rash is coincidental. Ugh.
While still at the doctor's office, the nurse from the school called. My pre-Ker was in her office with a 100.2 fever. While that's not too high, it's above their 100 limit. Too coincidental to me! I told her what the doc suspected when I picked him up. I'm really hoping he didn't expose his entire class this morning!
IDK how my 2yo was exposed first?! He doesn't go to daycare or anything.
I don't think HF & M is dangerous for me or the baby, but I'm taking Grapefruit Seed Extract in OJ and hand washing A LOT. I'm going to start the big boys on OJ and GSE when they get home from school.
