Long Week

The twins have been teething since last weekend and have been off their food, drooling and not sleeping well. Mum and Dad are a little tired.

Friday evening, daycare told us that Cara had a temperature of 101.6 and may have symptoms of hand, foot and mouth so off we went to Acute Care (sort of a low-key Emergency Room) where they played under murals of Marvin the Martian.

It turns out that they have herpangina which is a non-threatening viral infection common among kids. Their prescription includes TLC and a "magic mouthwash" which is really 3 medications combined. That seems to have helped their appetite and now they are roaming around after a good breakfast.
