Yesterday was a really bad day. Keith and I thought that Mya had gotten hit in the mouth by a swing. She had a sore inside her lip but by 1 pm yesterday, I knew it was something worse than that. Nothing helped. She wouldn't/couldn't eat and had difficulty drinking. I took her to the pediatrician and she has hand, foot and mouth disease--sores all over her mouth. Poor thing. We got some tylenol with codeine. Short term relief. I finally gave her some Benedryl at 10:30 pm so that she could calm down and sleep. Also, it was time for some more tylenol/codeine. She slept til nearly 7 am. Thank God. She seems a bit better today but the doc said not to take her to daycare cuz it will peak today. YUCK. I hope none of the rest of us get it. Not as bad for adults/adolescents and the chances are not too high if we keep washing our hands.
