Sick Babies

I have lots of fun updates for you that I would love to have time to write, but that's not happening this week. On Saturday while we were at the zoo with my family, Connor started vomiting and running a high fever. After a miserable night, I took him to Urgent Care on Sunday where we learned that he has Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease in his throat. It is a horrible throat infection and the doctor said that it is extremely painful. He doesn't want to eat and is drooling everywhere because it hurts too much to swallow his own saliva. We have been alternating Motrin and Tylenol to help keep his fever down and trying to get him to nurse whenever he feels up to it. He is so uncomfortable and just screams and thrashes around until his medicine kicks in. Last night Grace started acting sick. Sure enough, this morning she's got the same symptoms. So we're in for a long week at our house.

I hate seeing them in pain. I feel so helpless. So there won't be any more posts until everyone is on the mend. Hopefully it will be soon!

  1. It's awful having sick kiddos! I hope both of yours recover quickly. My 9 month old is fighting a bug too right now and her sad cry when she doesn't feel good breaks my heart.
