The good news is that I can stop the antibiotics. The bad news is that I can't work for a few days. And I feel awful.
I'm still developing blisters so I went back to see the doctor again. It is hoof-&-mouth. Or, as it's supposed to be called in humans (though nobody ever actually does), Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. The sore throat was the beginning of it. I'm under doctor's orders to not work until the blisters are healed. I'd hoped I could work in latex gloves, but transmission turns out to be respiratory, so no such luck. Bless Kathy, she emailed me some work I could do at home. But as bad as I feel, I won't mind doing nothing much for a few days. I feel worse than I did last Friday.
I know that you could make me feel better just be being here. So get here, will you? If you absolutely can't, I'll be more than happy to come to you. But you know that. And so does everybody else, probably. Please do pray for my hands and feet, and keep praying for my mouth.
I love you so, so much,
