This morning, he woke up with tons more spots and some of them were the size of mosquito bites. His hands, bottom and back are covered with bumps and he has clusters of them all over his body: around his lips, all over his arms and legs and on his tummy and chest.
We took him to the Mercy After-hours clinic as soon as we saw them. The doctor looked him over and said "well, they're on his hands, feet and mouth..." and my heart sunk because I knew. He diagnosed him with Hand Foot and Mouth disease and said there was no medication for it.
We have been giving him Baby Advil every six hours which seems to be helping a little, but he still isn't eating much and just isn't feeling good. We gave him a popsicle and an oatmeal bath tonight which seemed to help also. The doctor said it will last a week to 10 days...so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully he starts feeling better soon.
Even though he isn't feeling well, he has still been trying so hard to be happy and to play. He walked about 25 feet without falling tonight.
