HFMD update

Since my previous post, Ash and hubby have recovered. Thankfully, for Ash, it was a mild HFMD. Inspite of it all, we kept her home the whole time. Well, not exactly the whole time because we made trips to the doctors and to grandparent's house. Although I was very tempted to bring her to Kidzania so she could use up her Kidzzos (do they earn money or you have to spend them? I have no idea cos she went there with her friends on a school field trip) and to calm my nerves. I kept Mini home too in anticipation of her getting HFMD as well but thankfully (really really thankful) she was spared.

Also, even though I had hubby home with me, I was busier than ever. He couldn't do much with them blisters on him. He had it a little worst than Ash. His throat was sore, more blisters and he also threw up with fever and all. Just so you know, adults have every bit of a chance of getting HFMD too so it's a myth if someone tells you that big people don't get it at all (according to the doc).

They were all better by the weekend. Our first trip out was to the grocery store! LOL...what fun! In addition to some meat, I also replenished my body scrubs. If only I had a nice and huge bath-tub to soak my tired body in. Now that would be heavenly! 

Anyway, glad the episode is over. Plus, the school holidays are approaching - 2 weeks y'all! We had every intention of going down south. But, will have to see how hubby's schedule at work goes and how our finances pans out. Other than that, am kinda looking forward to the holidays. We've got a couple of play-dates lined up, and my friend is still in town so yippee!!! We'll see...
