It all started on Thursday when we dropped Will off with our parents. They could tell he was really hot and decided to take his temperature. It was around 102 degrees. Will was super cranky and having a rough time. We gave him some ibuprofen and let him take a long nap. The next day his fever had gone down but he was probably feeling worse. That's when Lance and I noticed that he was starting to get sores in and around his mouth. Apparently Will has Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease.
|At least he still smiles and tries to be happy some of the time.|
|I had to get outside for some air yesterday. He loved being out and running up and down the driveway. |
Today he's been eating much better and I believe that he is starting to feel much better. He is still covered in little sores, but those take time to heal and go away. Today at lunch, I think he ate enough to make up for the past three days, which is a pretty good indicator that he is feeling better. We believe that he is past the contagious stage, but we are trying to keep his contact with other kids at a minimum, just to be certain.
