Sidelined Again...UGH!

   Well the plan was to come back to blogging on a regular basis and go and visit my friends "homes" here in blogland, really it was.  However, as life often does, it sidelined me once again.  In addition to my "normal" health struggles and issues, I am now dealing with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.  My youngest grandson Steven got it, then his Mommy Rachel got it from him and now it seems, it is my turn.

   My symptoms are mainly centered in my mouth.  I have blisters and sores on my tongue and all around the inside of my mouth.  It makes eating and drinking most anything difficult at the moment.  I just finished a cup of coffee with creamer in it and that hurt.  However, if I don't have my coffee, we will be dealing with a whole other problem of caffeine withdrawals and nobody wants to be around me if that happens. 😉  I do also have a few spots on the rest of my body also.

   In order to try and keep my hubby from getting this too we have taken measures to try and stop the spread of it.  In addition to frequent handwashing, I am sleeping in a different bedroom than he is at the moment.  We also threw away his toothbrush and got him out a new one, got a seperate water glass and even a new tube of toothpaste for him.  He is keeping his stuff in the guest bathroom, way away from mine.  I'm not cooking much this week because I am afraid of my germs getting onto the food...well that an my energy level is nilch at the moment.  With that said, my hiatus from blogland my be a bit longer than I had planned.  For now I am going to go and lay down for awhile.  My brain is way foggier than my normal everyday fog and I have a bad headache.  Praying that no one else ends up with is no fun!


  1. May you all be better very soon.
    God bless,

  2. Bless your heart, just like you needed something else.
    God bless and healing my friend.

  3. I'm so, so sorry. I've never had that, but sores in my mouth? Yuck!!! I don't want it!

    I'll pray for you that you will recover quickly with a minimum of discomfort. It sounds like you are taking good steps to prevent it from spreading.

  4. My heart goes out to you. A few years ago, I got a horrible flu bug that just took forever with my CFS. I so hope you don't' experience anything like that.
    Please take good care of yourself and rest. But it sounds like you and Jeff have a good plan in place.
    Sending hugs,

  5. Well that just stinks! Hope you are on the mend and feeling better soon!!

  6. Bless your soul, my friend.
    Rest and relax.
    Prayers and hugs!

  7. Oh, Debbie, so sorry to hear that you are sick, too. Hope you feel better soon and no body else gets sick! Take care.

  8. I hope you feel better soon. That sounds like a miserable virus.

  9. I'm so sorry that you contracted that disease! I remember my oldest son had that once when he was three, and the mouth lesions were really painful. Hope you're feeling better soon.
