Another sick weekend.
This cave is really starting to feel like home. haha We are pretty sure that Malachi has hand-foot-mouth disease. Luckily, he wasn't in childcare at mom's group on Friday. It started yesterday with a really fussy, drool-y boy. We thought he was working on his eye teeth since not all of them have popped through yet. Before bed, I noticed what looked like little white canker sores on the tip of his tongue, but I thought they could just be from biting his tongue, or more regular canker sores like he has had in the past. The mouth sores had spread to his lips by this morning and he was very cranky. Didn't want to drink, and would only eat mushy food. We got him some Baby Oragel (a heaven send!!) and that made him feel all better. After lunch, we went to the mall to get out of the house and give him something to distract him. By the time we got home, he had little red dots all over his hands and feet that continued to multiply. Other than the mouth pain, he feels fine, so hopefully this will be out of our system and back to normal soon. No church again this week! Bummer!
