I have bad news. My babies have a virus;( We’ve been dealing with this awful virus for the past week. They have started feeling better today, Thank goodness!!!
They had this same virus last year. It’s the sister virus to Hand, foot and mouth. Where’d it come from? How’d they get it? I have no answer for that but what I do know is I would rather deal with a double ear infection than this virus. I’m going to quote Bobby Boucher’s momma from the Water Boy and tell you that “it’s the devil”.
They have ulcers on their tongues and in the back of their throats. Jocelynn even has a few on the outside of her mouth. This with over 100 degree fever causes them not to want to eat or drink anything. And when they try to eat or drink they scream because it hurts them so bad;( It breaks my heart. I wish I could take it away from them. The past two days I’ve gotten them to eat some yogurt, oatmeal and ice cream because sick babies get ice cream! I’m hoping tomorrow will be even better than today because its been so hard trying to care for them and Maddie too (who by the way has not gotten it)! Poor Jocelynn just wants mommy to hold her the whole time and I cant when Maddie is awake because I’m tending to her. It hurts my feelings so bad when she gets mad but I know one day shell understand.
Ive been getting lots of cuddles with this virus but I’m ready to see my happy, playful babies again. I’m so thankful they’ve been healthy up until this point since Maddies arrival. I knew something was coming though because of that.
The husband is off tomorrow so we are going to try and blow up the twins new pool and let them play if they are up to it! Hope you are all having a great week!
