Halloween this year was not so sweet for Addisan. We had practiced during the week walking in the neighborhood wearing our costume with our candy bag and going door to door….only to wake up from our afternoon nap on Halloween with a 104 degree temperature. We believe that she had Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. When I rushed her to the doctor, they ruled out strep and the flu. They were able to say that her throat was swollen with a big blister in the back of it. There were not enough blisters to confirm for sure that it was indeed Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease, but they could not rule it out. The reason why we think it was HFM was because a mother from our Moms’ Group came with her child on Monday that had just broken out with it the day prior. What this mother was thinking…I have no idea! Needless to say, this mother’s choice not only ruined our Halloween, but we missed a birthday party up home the following day. I just don’t know what people are thinking some days. We did though make the best of the situation and went trick-or-treating next door the following evening. Addisan enjoyed it and probably like it even more in the day light than she would at night.
