Oh no! I haven't been through it, so no advise here. Just well wishes!
When you say that it finally got you, is this something that's going around? I was just at the pedi office and there was no mention about it.
I haven't posted on here in forever, but my little one had this not too long ago. It was miserable for everyone. He ate quite a few popsicles and wanted lost of cold water. We couldn't get him to actually eat much of anything.
Crazily, my husband caught it too. We went to the doctor because we weren't sure what was wrong with both of them, and she was pretty shocked that a grown man had contracted hand, foot, and mouth. I think my husband was more pitiful than our little man. Thankfully, it only lasted a few days.
