A Sick Weigh-In

First of all, the good news.  I lost weight!

September 4, 2013

Weight: 388.0

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.

    Well, you just can’t catch a break, can you?! 🙂 Take care of yourself! I hope you get to feeling better soon. And for Henry’s sake, I am glad he had a mild case.

    yay on the weight loss! But OH NO on the sickness. Gosh, I thought Hand Foot & Mouth were pretty much obsolete. It frustrates me when parents bring their sick kids to daycare. I offered to watch a little boy the other day. He ended up barfing. Come to find out, his mother KNEW he was barfing before he got to my house. AAARGH!!!
