On 25 April 2012 we noticed spots on Julian's hands and legs! Oh, no! We didn't need a doctor's confirmation to know Julian is now down with HFMD as well!
Thankfully, his symptoms were not as severe as Justin's. He didn't have fever on the onset and had just a few ulcers in the mouth. He could eat and drink quite normally. Periodically, he did complain of pain in the mouth. For Julian there were more lesions on the palms and feet compared to Justin.

It took about a week for the 'spots' to clear completely.
School reopened on 30 April 2012, but the boys only went back to school on 3 May 2012. With that we moved back to some 'normalcy' in our lives...
