Hand, foot and mouth disease is the worst! Brody ended up getting it on Friday and it was by far the worst virus he's had. He was miserable and today is the first day that he isn't crying nonstop. Momma felt so helpless and didn't know what to do! Poor boy couldn't even swallow and we were having to syringe feed him water and meds around the clock. He could talk, sleep, eat :( At one point I broke down in tears because I felt so sorry for him. I hope we NEVER see that nasty virus again!

ENT Appt: took Jaxson in this morning and he does indeed need tubes, shocker! We scheduled it for July 7th. If you could please keep him in your prayers. We had a very rough time with Brody coming out of anthesia and I'm very worried about Jaxson and his breathing. I know he's in great hands but you hear about these freak things happening and with his rough start, well I just worry. Dr. P assured me that he is safer breathing while he does the tubes than he is in everyday life because of the amount of monitoring they do.

Until next time,

Seriously!! Hand, foot, mouth disease

Jaxson has the virus called hand, foot, mouth disease which causes 2-3 days of fever followed by painful blisters and sores on his hands, feet and inside of his mouth. He was up literally all night screaming. It was awful and nothing could comfort him :( on the way to the doctor the sores began appearing and the doctor said his mouth and throat are covered. He also has an ear infection in his left ear and his right ear isn't looking good. He's been on augmentin for that since Sunday. I got his ENT bumped up to this Monday!!

Jax ~ 8 months

Happy 8 months sweet boy! I cannot believe that Jaxson is already 8 months, time really flies by with the second baby.

Jaxson is the happiest, sweetest boy that loves to cuddle and give kisses. He's really starting to take interest in crawling and right now he just rolls and scoots around but I have a feeling in the next month he will be chasing after big brother.

He's in size 3 diapers
6-9 month clothes
Favorites: big brother, banana's, squash and talking.

Last week he realized he had a voice and learned to use it. He squeals all the time now.

He's had 2 ear infections, one double, colds and thrush. Other than that he's been healthy as a clam.

We don't go back to the doctor until 9 months so I will have his stats then.
