We just got back from the Doctor. She thinks hand, foot, and mouth disease but says it is hard to diagnose at this age. He had a fever that had dropped with infant Tylenol and feels like it is gone now. I'll be taking his temperature whenever I change his diaper and giving him the Tylenol every 6 hours.
(sigh) I had a 90 minute massage scheduled for today. Ah well, there is a sick baby to cuddle and snuggle. He is in a pretty good mood right now.
