Under the Weather

Just a quick update on us... my 1 year old came down with hand, foot, and mouth disease over the weekend. So, I've been dealing with one incredibly CRANKY little boy. If you've ever seen a child infected with this virus, it's a really pitiful sight. Fever for several days plus lots of painful blisters in their mouth, throat, lips, hands, feet, etc.

My daughter has been running a fever today, which I'm sure means she has contracted it, too. So, not much writing for me this week. Hopefully our crew will be back to normal soon.

Until then...

P.S. 21 of 26 letters done. Am I ever gonna make it through the challenge?! ; )

oh no, it's spreading! Poor Cade, so sad that you guys are having to deal with all this. I read the email Jana sent out and it talked about being contagious like 2 weeks after symptoms even go away! I was shocked that it lasts so long. I would go stir crazy, I hope they get well soon.

Oh, you poor thing. I hope the kiddos are feeling better soon. I used to teach preschool and have seen this more than once, it is no fun at all!

And, of COURSE you'll finish the challenge, I have faith in you...just take your time! We'll all be here to celebrate with you when you finish!

God's blessings on your day!

Thanks, gals. Jordan, I've read mixed information about how long they're contagious. Unfortunately, adults can be carriers, too, and not be infected. I think it's one those illnesses that if you're gonna get it, then you're just gonna get it.

But we'll be extra cautious, promise!

Oh no:( Josh had this when he was little, it spread around his pre-school like crazy in one day. Some chldren got it real bad and some just had a low grade fever.

I hope everyone is feeling better soon!
