Coxsackie Blues

Henry was upset most of Monday night. Tuesday morning he seemed fine. Around noon, Maryellen wrote to tell me that he had a fever and I should come pick him up. I took him to the pediatrician and he has some blisters on the back of his throat. Apparently this is a common virus called Coxsackie.

Our Tuesday night was spent taking turns trying to soothe Henry boy. This was the most sick he has ever been in his short life. I was unable to take him to daycare today and his fever has been up and down. As of my writing this, he seems to be feeling a lot better and was smiling and crawling around most of the night. Hopefully, we can get him back in the swing of things tomorrow.

  1. Oh, I’m so sad that Henry is sick, poor sweetheart. Wish I could be there to try to help comfort him. Ya’ll must be so tired. I hope Henry’s getting better, he’s always in my prayers & I’ll pray for him to get well really quickly. It’s kind of late Wed. nite and I’d just called Uncle Chris from the living rm. to come & see Henry’s latest photo and we were both sad to see our grandson & nephew crying and hurting. Uncle Chris is here working in Houston for maybe a couple of wks and we’re enjoying his company. Love, Grandma Lois (& Uncle Chris)

  2. It is always such a helpless feeling to know that a baby is hurting and they don’t understand why. Even as adults, we may understand the hurt but we still want to cry hard 😉 Hugs to you all!

  3. What a silly name for an illness. He sure is a cute cryer though, as the man in the elevator said. Sure is hard to see him sad though and I bet you are exhausted. They are awfully cuddly though when they are sick. That is an unfortunate upside.
