Back to the clinic today. Yesterday Joey developed a rash over much of his body and in his mouth. Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. What next?!
The rash started on his knees early afternoon and by supper time had covered his arms, legs, hands, feet, mouth and thighs. They quickly turned from red spots to pimple type bumps to small blisters. Some of the first to show up have now turned to scabs....yuck!

Since it is contagious only through bodily fluids we were told we did not have to keep him home....they obviously don't know Joey! Lol He puts his mouth on everything, so I think we'll lay low for a couple days until it passes.

Can't wait until he gets his immune system back to normal.

Good excuse to stay in and have a movie day!
