My Life

Hand Foot Mouth

sick

As I touched on yesterday kids are filthy creatures that spread disease with every single breath they take, and as of today – I’m just another victim. Yep, yours truly has the dreaded Hand-Foot-Mouth virus and It totally sucks. I have these nasty red bumps all over my hands and feet and I can barely walk because it literally feels like I’m walking on pins and needles.  It doesn’t help that every 12 seconds one of my kids calls me for some mundane task that they can’t manage to do themselves for whatever reason. My hands are also covered in red splotches and incredibly painful, making it hard to open anything or do anything involving my hands. So I’m stuck on the couch watching re-runs of COPS and the kids are on auto-pilot.

My husband got this three months ago. He was laid up for a week. His mouth was so painful he could not eat and lost 9 pounds. Warning: Your hands and feet are going to blister and peel and its gonna be UUUUUGGGGLLLY. Your wife will be super grossed out. Fun stuff.

Feel better soon. And, please do not feel bad that your kids get filthy. In some ways it is very beneficial as it helps build up there immune system.
