Brenna's fever was gone today, and the La Crosse Winter Rec Fest Mighty Mites Hockey Jamboree was today. She still wasn't feeling great (her throat was REALLY sore), but she really wanted to go. I told her she could try, but that if she got too tired or too much in pain, that we could leave early. So, instead of having 20 minutes of practice, and 4 games, she did 20 minutes of practice and one game. But she had a good time, and I'm glad she was able to participate, even if it was only a little bit.

Since she was hurting so much, and a glance in her throat showed white spots, I thought she might have strep. So, off to urgent care. The good news is that she doesn't have strep. The bad news is that she actually had Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. Apparently, she is definitely not contagious, because the fever broke, but they can't do anything for her throat other than ibuprofen, liquids, and smooth foods. Usually there is a rash on the hands and feet in smaller children, but apparently it can just present as headache, fever, nausea, and mouth/throat sores in older kids. Fun times. Hopefully she feels better soon, since I can't give her much to help her throat!

Afterward, we headed home to do chores and hang out as a family. I also finished the blessing dress set I was making for my friend. I hope she likes it, and that it fits the baby!

Now, bedtime so I can be "on" for Primary tomorrow. Plus, we get to go have dinner with some friends--we're making homemade bread, and they're making lamb stew. Yum! I'm so excited. :) And I get to go, since Brenna isn't contagious!
