Brock Rocks

Brock woke up yesterday morning with bumps all around his mouth and on the backs of his hands.  We called the hem/onc clinic because we’d heard that hand foot and mouth disease had been going around.  Because of the holiday they didn’t have anyone that could see him so they told us to take him to the ER.  I called back and said “can’t we just take him to his regular pediatrician for this??”  Their response: “Oh. Yeah! We forget he has a regular pediatrician.”

So thankfully, for the first time in over a year and a half, we avoided the ER and could go to the peds office like normal people.

Brock’s ped and another dr in the practice agreed that it didn’t look like hand foot and mouth but that it looked like a REALLY severe case of cold sores (herpes simplex virus 1).

You’ve had a cold sore before, right?  Most people have.  You know how bad it hurts to have just 1 on your lip.

Brock has them all over his face, ears, neck, scalp, hands, and even a few on the bottoms of his toes. 

Poor baby is so miserable.

Please pray that the medicine works and that they don’t get worse (which would require hospitalization).


  1. Poor thing!
