Hand, Foot, and Mouth

E called yesterday and said, based on Ander's symptoms, check for hand, foot, and mouth disease. I already had. No sores. But since E brought it up, I checked the soles of his feet. Two blisters. By three hours later, they were all over his soles and arms and a few were around his mouth.


So we are home today. I am going into the office, but I have a client coming in this afternoon, so I'll minimize impact on my sister (whose watching him, since my mom has other kids at her house) by keeping him home part of the day.

It's going to be a long morning. Especially since he's hungry, but it hurts to swallow, so he keeps chewing up food and spitting it out. Ick.
