While, B's gums are a bit inflamed and her molars are "coming in the next month or so," that's not what has been making our lives a living hell these days. No, teeth are not the culprit.
Apparently, it's some kind of herpangina. Otherwise known as hand, foot and mouth. How IN THE HELL did my child pick up THAT? I guess, I thought that was only something she'd pick up if she were in daycare or around lots of other kids (we haven't been to church in a few weeks). Apparently, I was wrong.
You can get it from not washing your hands properly. It's a fecal-oral transmission most of the time. Basically, she got it from someone's poo. Who's, I have no idea, since we are pretty good hand washers in this house and so are my IL. So I have no idea. None.
I've been wracking my brain, trying to figure out where we have been in the last couple of weeks and I'm coming up empty on where she could have picked it up. I don't think we will ever know.
What I do know is, we probably got a few kids sick with it since we went swimming a couple times. And met up with a friend of ours today (although Brynna didn't actually touch him the entire time they were together so he may be safe).
On the bright side, it usually only lasts 5-7 days with the first 3-4 days being the worst. And we are on day 4 so tomorrow HAS to be better, right? RIGHT?
And we are thisclose to Batman getting home! Only a matter of a few days now :D
