Passwords have been reset and it’s been a busy week in Cooperworld so it’s time to get back to posting!
Stay tuned for more.
Whoops, I meant to post this on Friday shortly after I posted the fever baby photo. Didn’t mean to alarm anyone. The short version is: Cooper is fine.
The longer version is….
On Monday we were notified that Hand, Foot & Mouth disease* was running through daycare. Once I read how contagious it is, I quickly yanked Coop from daycare, took him home and kept him there for a day to let all the contagion be identified and kicked out.
By Wednesday morning, seven out of the fourteen kids in Cooper’s class were out with HFM. I smugly patted myself on the back big time for being a proactive mom.
On Wednesday afternoon, we were notified that, surprise!, Roseola* is also running through the class. The
Petri Dish daycare assured us that they were doing everything in their power to keep things from spreading.
Meanwhile, I naively thought Cooper had a better constitution than ALL the other children because he had never looked/felt better. He was the happiest he’s ever been.
And then fast forward to Thursday afternoon. The call came: “Hi Mrs Christy, Cooper has a temperature of 101….
So home he came and all my smugness just slapped me in the face.
The good news is that his temp got as high as 102.5 on Friday night but was back down to normal by Saturday morning. Interestingly, no bumps. All that fuss about Hand Foot & Mouth and the Roseola and still no bumps. So I’m thinking that Cooper had “empathy fever” which isn’t really a thing but it makes as much sense as anything else in the world of baby health.
