Well, Deborah has the herpes simplex stuff now, too.
This stuff is so awful! I've been calling it 'the plague'. My mom doesn't like me calling it that, but good grief- Open wounds, screaming, bleeding gums... What else do you call it?
I feel horribly guilty about this one, too. I really feel like them getting this one is my fault. If I hadn't taken Abigail out when she was still recovering from bronchitis they probably wouldn't have gotten it. She was going stir crazy, but I should have waited a couple more days.
The nasty thing is that it never really goes away. For the rest of their lives they will get cold sores when they're sick. I never had to deal with this. In fact, I don't know anybody who's had this. Or at least who's ever admitted to having it... So, I don't know what it'll really be like.
And so it goes.
