A quick hello as its feeding time here. I've arrived here in Melb and I've got a sort of rash on my hand that looks very familiar e.g. HF and M. Sure hope not!
best, THK

I hope not. But that might explain why your LO was sick a few days ago. DH's rash felt like sunburn when it first start coming in. Now he has pronounced dots on his hands.

Good luck, my dear...

Very mild rash that comes & goes, but he shared a drink with ds #2 on Sat., right before ds threw up & the blisters appeared.

I hope whatever it is is mild, THK.

What seems to be going around here is very mild -just a few spots. So it could be but you wont ever know 100% my MD said when it is so mild. The usual progression is a high fever 102+ for a few days, then a few days later some sores in the mouth (usually the far back) then red lil spots almost rashy/not raised around the mouth, and then hands and feet/usually the palms and ankle areas per our MD. McBaby has a few sores only on his tongue, one on his lip, no red on hand,feet or around mouth but had a 102 fever for 3 days and isn't happy still about eating. Its been a week, ugh. So far (knock on wood) no one else has caught it from him esp since he steals everyones cups to drink from and is a big kisser!

Stock up on cold/soft food..McBaby is all about greek yogurt, frozen cool whip and banana slices I put in the freezer for about 30min!

seems like a LOT of this around -- is it the time of year or is this a year round thing?

Sorry to hear DS 1 has been hit as well -- that xmas stuff still seems so recent to me!!

Hope everyone gets healthy soon.

Whats going On, this is crazy! I'm sorry to read this poor guys!

I hope you and DH aren't next. I read you can pass it on fit weeks after all signs are gone.

I'm bracing myself here...

I am sorry to hear so many people and their children have it. I seem to be ok. It has not developed any further. I do feel a bit I'll though but maybe that is something else entirely. Thanks for writing and hope everyone who is il
Gets better quickly, thk
