Quick Update...

First of all, thanks so much for all your comments, advice & encouragement...if there's one thing you can count on in this world, it's the blog world to have your back...sincerely, thank you.

It hadn't even occured to me that Elena may have HFM Disease but it seems this may be the case...I had wondered if maybe her fever was related to her infected's been low grade, around 99.0 - 100.9...but at her 1am dose (Advil) last night, no fever...

My Mom called me this morning (since I leave for work before Elena wakes) & the fever is still gone but she has sores around her mouth now...she is calling our Dr's office as soon as it opens at 9am...

As a side note, the photo I posted of Elena's finger may have been a bit deceiving, looking a bit worse than it does...I had taken it just after we had soaked it in antiseptic...what a trooper Elena was for that! Not a peep or a tear & kept her finger in for a good long time to let it do it's work.

Thanks again, everyone, for your help & advice...will keep y'all posted...


  1. Gosh! Poor kiddo!! (I am just getting caught up on blogs.) Glad you figured out what it is. Hopefully it will be cleared up soon!

  2. Sending warm wishes of feeling better!

  3. When it rains it pours--but thankfully this doesn't seem like it's going to turn into a hurricane. Hope Elena (and your mom) is feeling better real soon!
