Hand, Foot, Mouth (Bottom, Legs, Arms, Face...)

Oh my...what a DAY! Hudson woke up crying yesterday which is very strange for him...he normally wakes up chatting away and is extremely happy. I knew something was wrong immediately when I took off his jammies and began finding little red dots all over him. We were at his pediatrician's office by mid morning and found out he had the Hand, Foot, and Mouth virus. I'm not sure why it is called that because my poor baby has these red dots EVERYWHERE...even on his face and ears. They are the worst on his feet and in his mouth. So, needless to say we have had a ROUGH day today...lots and lots of crying mixed in with cuddling. He hasn't eaten in two days and I was pretty near tears before his bath tonight. However, true to Hudson style, he got in the tub and was a happy boy for a while. YEA!! I saw a smile for the first time today. I am hoping and praying that tomorrow is a better day and that he will try to eat something. Hudson is the second one in our playgroup to get this since last week and I hope he is the last because it is YUCKY!!!

You can see a few of the dots on his face. Poor baby! :(
