Since it has been 4 days now since Brooks has developed this rash, I can say that I do not believe that it is Hand Foot and Mouth Disease. I still don't know what it is but I just believe it is some type of viral rash. Instead of calling it a rash, you could say it is a skin discoloration because you can't even feel it. He has felt fine this whole time, so I guess we will move on from this.
Reese has a cold. I am actually thankful though, he hasn't been sick since the first week of May, so this has been a long stretch of "wellness" for him. He takes after me so much in that at night he is ok until he lays down, and then he starts coughing. If you sit him up he stops, and even falls back to sleep, but when he lays back down it starts all over again. I had thought about getting in the recliner and just letting him sleep on me, but I can't sleep like that. I have to have my bed, with my pillow, with the covers fixed just right, etc. to be able to sleep. We will see what tonight brings.
I got a lot of great school uniforms for Brooks at the consignment sale last week. I think he is pretty much ready to start school now. I am going to go back on the half price days and see if there is anything else that he could use. I am so thankful to the ladies for doing this. It sure saves a lot of money!
I am working from home today, with both boys here, so I may have pulled my hair out by the end of the day. Here's to hoping I am not bald tonight!
