Miserable with a capital M...

My poor baby girl has HMFD more commonly known as Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease. It's a very common virus and is spread through coughing and touch. Symptoms are High Fever from 100 to 104 degrees and rash. The rash turns into blisters and then spreads to the mouth. There's not anything we can do except keep her comfy by alternating Tylenol and Motrin and keep her hopped up on Benadryl to help with the itching and to keep her relaxed.
This is what her hands and body will look like soon. I feel like a horrible Mom.
