Foot in mouth disease


Little Roo has taken foot in mouth to a whole new level….

She really does have foot and mouth disease and I am tired.

I was led to believe that it was not that bad,” not a big deal just a few red spots on the feet and on or around the mouth”.

 Wrong, She has not stopped crying all week.

The   first day she had a fever, then she was miserable, and on the third day I noticed the spot inside her cheek, by bed time she has the red spots on her feet. 

And here we are, two day’s after the spots appeared and she is still a mess most of the time. The poor kid, her mouth hurts to eat, and her feet hurt to walk ( although I have not seen her looking at them or complaining about her feet. Well, unless I am inspecting them that is).

I need a day off.  Have you had experience with this child hood illness? How long will the insanity last?


About karynforyou

Thank you for stopping by. I am a wife, mother to three daughters and homeschooler. It`s my intention to encourage, strengthen and laugh with friends. If you were stopping by my home you would find a sink full of dishes, books and paper strewn about but plenty of seats available for extra guests and the kettle on for tea... I may need to be reminded a few times before the tea is actually brewed. I`m blogging to help me keep focused. I will post about parenting, marriage, homeschooling, homemaking, and I`m sure there will be a few trips to the sewing room from time to time. If you have a post idea or question please feel free to contact me, I will get back to you.

  1. I am so sorry for your little one and for you too. I didn’t know this is a real disease. Rue must be so miserable!!

    We connected 3 or 4 years ago and you said you would like to see my tie quilt when I got it done. I copied your message and put it with my ties.

    Yahoosie, I am done and it is gone to my son in law. Please let me know if you got the photos.

    I hope your little one is better SOON!!!! Keep us posted.



  2. My middle daughter had hand-foot-mouth disease when she was about 10 months. It lasted for a little over a week. I had to carry her for 3 days because the blisters on her feet hurt, and her throat hurt also. Cold drinks and lots of love help a lot. So sorry you have to experience this.
