Batman and Lessons Learned

Well, we've had an interesting couple of days here at the Hunter house. On Wednesday I noticed that Jordyn wasn't being her normal, happy self. She would eat hardly anything, didn't want to play very much, and was really clingy. Thursday was a little bit worse. I thought she was just going through a stage.
On Friday I had Katy Marsh baby-sit for me while I went to the dentist. She said that Jordyn would only eat one bite of Macaroni and Cheese. Jordyn really likes Macaroni and Cheese and so it made me worried. I took Jordyn to the doctor that afternoon. (Sorry again Katy!)

The doctor said that Jordyn has "herpangina". You might of heard of's also know as "hand, foot, and mouth disease". POOR JORDYN! She is just miserable! Here's the link, in case you're interested.

Does anybody have any experience with this? I'm in need of some advice. Jordyn won't eat and we can only get her to drink a little at a time. She's basically been sleeping all day today. She still has tears, which the doctor says is good...for dehydration purposes.

It's interesting how some days I feel like I'm going crazy and then one of my girls gets sick and the world stops. My heart is breaking for her. I just don't know how to help her. It's hard to see my girls go through hard things. I was preparing my primary lesson this afternoon and couldn't help but think of my Heavenly Father. I know that we have the potential to be like Him and that this life is our preparation. How difficult it must have been for Him to watch His Son suffer. I'm grateful for a Father in Heaven and a Savior who both did all they needed to so that I could live again and be with my family forever.

Tomorrow I'm giving my primary class empty Easter eggs. They're only six, but I hope that I can teach them the significance of the empty tomb.
My sick Jordyn girl.

Jason bought Jordyn these cool Batman jammies...she loves them.

"If you're happy and you know it shout HURRAY!"

Poor girl! It is so hard to see your kids suffer. I hope she gets feeling better soon!

Sorry to hear that she is sick. I hate it when kids get sick. :( I hope she gets over it really fast. The only thing I know about that is to make sure you keep her away from pregnant women because for some reason it can kill the fetus. Not sure why. I will let you know if I find out anything else. Make sure Jason gives her a blessing if he hasn't already. I am sure that will help her feel better.

I did read something about pregnant women, but there are no studies that show that the fetus can be affected in any way. (No worries Julie!)

How sad. :( what do they do for that? I hope she feels better soon.
