Its bad...really, really bad

I have been a mother for almost ten years so its safe to say I have seen my share of illnesses and boo boos but this past couple of days beat all. My life has been a complete sleepless whirlwind of poop, puke, itchy (ness) and crying...oh so much crying. Yes a little of it was me but most of it has been the kids. After a five hour wait at the ER I heard the words I hope to NEVER hear again.

HAND. FOOT. MOUTH. DISEASE.

Which translates into ITCHY. PAINFUL. SCREAMING. NIGHTMARE.

I never realized how long a child could actually go without sleep or silence but its pretty close to 48 hours in case you are wondering. And even then it took a second trip to the ER, 3 prescriptions, 700 renditions of hush little baby and at least 300 episodes of Caillou to knock my two year old out for a few hours. Of course my kids are Mutant Ninja Kids that haven't ever done things like other peoples kids so yours may sleep after just one day of screaming but I pray you never find out. Its pitifully sad to see your child in any discomfort and know there is nothing you can do about it.

I did have good company at the hospital with me and I am very appreciative of that. My sister stuck out both nights with me and was so helpful and kind. I questioned if I was going to make it through unmedicated and they are MY children but she stuck in there making up lullabies and rating the doctors handsomeness like a pro. Oh get off your high horse...who doesn't check out a doctor every now and then? He was probably only cute in our delirious exhausted minds anyway but it was a great distraction from the massive amounts of death stares we were getting from everyone that was wishing my child would stop wailing. I really hate when people do that, like you are enjoying this baby screaming its butt off two inches from your face but that's another post.

Anyway today seems a little better so I am confident that tonight will go well and I fully intend on keeping my children massively sanitized (like gloves and masks) from now on. Kids are nasty little kritters that just naturally attrack every germ within a 10 mile radius...maybe I should just consider investing in real life Bubble Boy lifestyles for mine!
