First of all, the good news. I lost weight!
September 4, 2013
Change from Last Weigh-In: –8.0 pounds
I’m pretty pleased.
But here’s the bad news.
I caught Hand, Foot, & Mouth Disease from Henry, who got it at daycare. As with most childhood illnesses that adults don’t really get, Henry’s case was mine. Mine is probably the most sick I have been in my entire adult life.
That is what my left hand looked like last night. At last count, I had around 85 blisters on both hands, a few on my feet, and way too many in my mouth and throat. This is the worst sore throat I have had in my entire life. I had strep once. I would gladly have strep again. The only thing I can really eat is popsicles and orange sherbert.
This sucks. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.
Blogging will be scarce for a while. I’m just trying to survive the days at the moment, to be honest.
More info to come later, when I’m well.
