They were covered in bumps and blisters.
After figuring out he hadn't walked in the grass nor eaten anything different, we decided to run him to the aftercare doctor.
At 9:00pm, we were diagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth. I know, REALLY....it's a weird name and makes me think of a disease from 1867. All it is, is a virus....why we can't call it something else I don't understand.
EIV was lucky, just a ton of blisters on his feet, maybe one or 2 on his hand and nothing at all in his mouth. (Yes, I spared you any photos of the disease!)
We had planned on spending the weekend at my parent's lake, but didn't want to expose our 7 month old nephew to the virus.....so I got a weekend home alone with EIV.
Don't worry, we didn't just cuddle and sleep. We had our very own Memorial day party, 17-month-old style.
We played with the cat:
We had a dance party EVERY day:
We played with bubbles:
And got in lots and lots and lots of mommy and EIV time.......which is a rarity.
Needless to say...I LOVED every minute of it.
