Justin caught hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) on 20 April 2012 (a Friday).
Days 2, 3, and 4 were the worst as he hardly drank or ate anything. When coaxed, he drank some water and "cold Milo". He was interested in taking some solids but end up wailing because of the painful ulcers in his mouth. He did not sleep well either and threw terrible tantrums.
By Day 5 (24 April 2012, Tuesday) afternoon, he felt better and took some food. Day 6 (25 April 2012, Wednesday) saw him almost his usual self. When we picked him up at the baby sitter's, he was even chasing Julian around.
He was practically free from any HFMD symptoms by Day 8 (27 April 2012, Friday).
