We thought my DD had chicken pox last night, turns out she has HFMD and strep throat. We are pretty sure she got it at church in the nursery. Doctor said she would like me to stay away till she isn’t contagious or at least until Thursday because I am pregnant. She said she doesn’t want to take the chance of it effecting the baby. All I want to do right now though is go home and cuddle my DD. I bawled my eyes out because I feel helpless and feeling like the worst parent ever. I hope she gets better soon. Worst thing in the world is seeing your child suffer in pain!

Oh, I bet she’d just love it if you could draw/color her little pictures and have someone bring them to her to cheer her up! If she has a favorite cartoon, you can print them on your computer, and write a message that someone could read to her. Does she have one of those little Parents toy brand “cell phones” that you can record a short message? My daughter used to record a brief message, saying “I love you ___.” for her daughters when she was away at work.

Aww poor baby! Strep is the worst!!
You’re a better patient than me that’s for sure… I wouldn’t stay away from DD, I’ve always been aound the kids when they were sick (pregnant or not). I would start prophylatic measures though so up my garlic intake (how I treat strep) and watch the hand washing.
Hope she feels better soon!
