Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat (has anyone ever eaten goose for Christmas?) and we are about to have 40 people descend upon our house for the holidays.
Oh... did I mention that little Remewin has Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.
Also known as Herpangina (and let me tell you how fun that word is to say in a crowded room).
Right... so if you are about to come for a visit let me just tell you what Herpangina is:
Open sores (similar to canker's) all over inside of the mouth and down the throat... they are on the gums, on the tongue, on the cheeks and the lips and the roof of the mouth and on the outside of the mouth.
High Fever for days on end-- like 4 or 5 days.
Did I mention the open sores all over inside the mouth and down the throat?
It's pretty much just agony and I haven't the slightest idea if my others have caught it because it's a herpes complex virus (like cold sores) and 95% of the population is immune to it.
So.... if you are coming here... be warned.
I know that you all find this sadistic pleasure in bringing your germs here and getting me sick every year. So I'm sort of feeling a slight feeling of retributuion, but I thought I'd warn you anyway.
Now you're warned.
