On Sunday, August 20, 2017, Dontae came down with a fever. We thought it was from teething because his back molars were coming in. We gave him some Motrin and he went to bed. Monday morning, Don (his dad) calls me and says he threw up everywhere. First thing I said was, that is not a fever. I took him to the doctor that evening and the doctor said he had Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease.
I want to share the story of my daughter Bailey. On September 27th , 2014, I received a phone call while I was working that my daughter’s right leg was not functioning the way it should be. She kept falling as if her leg was asleep. I left work to take her to the emergency room, thinking her leg was broken or sprained. The x-rays at the E.R. showed everything looked fine. They sent us home with a diagnosis of possible right hip inflammation and orders to give ibuprofen around the clock.
