Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Today I found out that the little boy two houses down has been diagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (NOT the same as the animal variety heard of in past years). There's nothing you can do for it, as it's a virus. It takes about 7 to 10 days for it to clear up.

Both of my boys seem to have exhibited mild symptoms. Cameron had a fever, has complained of a sore throat and he now has a couple mouth sores. Plus he has been very lethargic these past few days, constantly in a daze. This is not like him at all.

Max has NOT been lethargic, but he may have had some mouth sores, screaming everytime he put a pacifier or his before-bed bottle in his mouth. He also had some spots on his bottom, and might have some on his feet.

If it's not hand-foot-and-mouth disease....he might have Foot IN Mouth disease.

Gotta love it! Levi had this in July. He had blistering sores all over his legs and was so crabby that I wanted to run away from home. It lasted for over a week! I pray that everyone heals very quickly.
