Insert Hoof in Mouth . . .

Dear John,

This will be a short note tonight. I don't think it was strep, I think it was hoof & mouth. I woke up this morning with lots of little painful blisters on my hands and feet. And I have them on the tips of my fingers, so typing is not pleasant. Doing anything at all with my hands and feet isn't pleasant. I can't imagine trying to put on shoes. Obviously I'll be staying home tomorrow - besides the shoe issue, there's the matter of being contagious. I'm not worried about it around here. It's overwhelmingly likely that Elyssa brought it home from daycare. I'm just glad that I'm the only one that seems to have it.

We had a slow, quiet day here. Elyssa and I played almost all day, and it was great fun. The dog is exhausted. And so am I! So we're all off to bed here.

Please pray for my feet and hands. And hooves. And mouth. (You've probably been praying over my mouth for years.) If it's not better by Monday I'll be calling the doctor again. I was looking forward to church tomorrow, but I know it's not right to expose everybody else to this.

Love you so, so much,
Joan.
