I'm SO ANOYED because my kiddos got the hand,, foot and mouth disease. I'm a military wife and I use hourly care weekly. I'm ptretty sure that's where they got it from. I have no friends or relatives around my area. My husband is in school right now. I work full time teaching. Even though they are with and FCC provider during the week, I take them to hourly care on Sat. so I can run errands.
Anyways, I've used almost all my sick days and personal days, because as we know kids get sick often specially when they are around other children. What upsets me the most is that even though I know hourly care is a need to many military spouses, some parents take their sick kids to the day care with no disregard that they WILL get other children sick. COMON people, have some common sense.
My boy started with a rash around the diaper area, but Sat. came and it was all over his hands, legs, and feet. He was scheduled for hourly care but I did the responsible thing and took him to the clinic. I HAD NO IDEA about this virus, never heard of it before. But again, even though I did not know what it was I did not take the chance of getting other children infected.
There is more to the story, but to keep it short I had to pay for my brother to flight in to watch my kids so I can go to work....
