Memaw took you to the doctor this morning and you have HFMD (Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease).

No appetite
Not sleeping (except last night (12 hrs!))
When they arrived at the office, Diane noticed you had ulcers in your mouth and down your throat. You re on a regimine of Mylanta and Benadryl (aka magic mouthwash), and Honey Elixir (since it is a virus, there are no antibiotics).

Thank God for mother's intuition. I hope (I know) you are enjoying Memaw's spoiling today!

See you soon,


P.S. I love you

A Bloody Mess


After Grandma cut her hand, I was hoping our family was done with blood for a little while. Not so much. Saturday morning you had your first nose bleed while in Mommy and Daddy's bed. That afternoon, you had another one. Thank you dry weather! Dried blood then spaghetti sauce that night. Nice. Of course the area where you bit through your lip (you totally ate it up) wasn't healed so it looked straight up like we are the worst parents on the planet!
Since Sunday, you have had a cough that is getting progressively worse. Memaw is watching you today and is taking you to the doctor this morning. Daddy and I think it is the fluid from your ears draining. Even so, we want to be sure.
At Grandma's on Monday, you hit your head and got a beautiful bruise on your forehead. Yesterday you thought it didn't stand out enough so you hit it again.

You are a bloody mess.

Love you,
