I’m at home today…unfortunately it’s due to Jordan being sick. He has Hand Foot and Mouth Disease…personally I’m not a fan of the term “disease” because it’s just a virus, it’s not a disease. So all weekend Jordan’s been cranky, he’s had a fever, and he would get exceptionally cranky when he was trying to drink something and didn’t have much of an appetite. I thought he had more teeth coming in. Turns out, nope he has a virus. I got a call from daycare after being at work for about an hour yesterday, that he had sores/rash on his hands, mouth, and feet and that it’s highly contagious, he needed to be picked up. Oy vey! So I immediately called the doctor to see if he could be seen asap. The doctor wasn’t in, but the nurse said if that’s what he has, there’s no remedy, no prescription or anything. It’s a virus, and unfortunately it has to run its course. According to the research I’ve done on the web, it starts out with fever and then the rashes. It’s common in children under 10. Most adults have had some variation of it as children so we’re pretty much immune.
