Herpangina what?

Jaxson made a trip to Dr. Williams’ office today and found out that he has an ear infection, herpangina, and several more teeth coming in, to add to his 12 teeth already.  So you ask, what’s herpangina?  I guess it’s blisters in his mouth and throat and is quite painful.  And NO, it’s not related to herpes at all.  So we started a course of antibiotics and hope to be feeling better soon.  We’re just glad that all of this is hitting now instead of next week when my sister gets married.  Other weekend news – Brad went to the Iowa game on Saturday and had a lot of fun since they won.  Then he got home just in time to go out with the guys to Heath’s bachelor party, which I haven’t gotten too many details about and probably don’t want to. He got home at 2:30 am, just in time for Jaxson to wake up at 3 am with his 102 degree fever, although he wasn’t any help, he was quite comical (that’s a whole other story).  While I was at work and Brad was gone, Jaxson spent some QT with G & G Cathcart.  They still managed to have a lot of fun eventhough Bubbie wasn’t feeling up to par.

“Is it bedtime yet Grandpa?”
Rockin’ out to some music with Daddy’s headphones and yes, those are ISU jammies he’s wearing.  They were hand-me-downs.

    I’m surprised Brad even let you put those ISU pj’s on Jaxson! That’s not even right. You just can’t love Iowa like the Cathcarts do and have anything red and gold in the house!

    Hi, found your site by searching for Herangina images.
    Just wondering if your son had received the chicken pox or mmr vancine (12 month shots) shortly before getting this. My duagther got the shot about a wk ago & had a high fever & the mouth sores. Now I see small red spots on her face – but not bad yet. I’m wondering if she’s reacting to the vacine.
    Thanks
    PS – Cute site
