Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Question about the HAND FOOT MOUTH thing
Hey all. Adam's school sent a note home on Friday saying that HFM was going around. The 2 kids who had it are in his class, UGH!! Just our luck. Anyway, today he is complaining of an "itchy throat". I looked in and there are raised red bumps back there...never seen it like this before. He has some energy, no fever, drinking but not eating. We go to the ped for his 5yr check tomorrow. Does that sound like the "blisters" they get in their throat? I hope I am just being paranoid. Nate is feeling better and so am I...guess things were going too good, lol.

Danie, the first thing we noticed with Rory was lethargy, fever, and bright red gums. We didn't know she had them in her throat until the doctor looked. Then it hit her gums, white fluid-filled blisters (almost looked like teeth poking through) and then blisters on the outside of her mouth last. I hope that's not what it is, but the throat was the first place they started for us. :( I'll be praying that's not it!!! Glad Nate is feeling better. BTW, the HFMD is passed through saliva, so make sure the boys aren't sharing drinks :) GOOD LUCK!

Thanks Michelle. I was so hoping you would pop on today to answer this question, lol. When I thought Nate had HFM (last year) i know now I was so wrong. He had a high fever, vomiting and diarrhea and such. I know now he had a touch of the flu or something.

With Adam, it is so hard to tell. He is definitely not himself tho. I am so praying it is just a cold with post nasal drip irritating his throat. There are a bunch of us with other kids besides our 5yr olds that just PRAY we don't get this in our house. I am being sure they don't share drinks (Adam already thinks its GROSS to share with Nate, lol) but Nate gives LOT'S of kisses to Adam so that's the hard part. I am off to take some tylenol myself...all this worry gave me a headache, lol ;)

Oh no. I don't know bc my girls never got it in their throat. I hope not. At least you have an appt tomorrow.
Check with your
doctor first!
