This week ds caught the coxackie virus.
On Tuesday he had a very high fever and ate NOTHING.
BUT, he did nurse and sleep all day long
Wednesday the fever was down but he was still eating next to nothing (a few pieces of bread) and nursing a lot - his throat is covered with blisters and it hurts to swallow.

but, he can nurse!
And the Ped says he was lucky to have a mild case of coxackie.
I wonder if it's bc he's nursing?

Poor baby! Hope he feels better soon. I'm sure that mama milk is soothing on his ouchy throat and mouth. I wonder if he'd like a mama-cicle? (frozen milk...)

Glad to hear DS is doing okay.

It's nice to get a reminder every once in a while, isn't it?

Of course! It's loaded with anti-infective properties.
