If You Can Read This Warning...

It's probably too late. 

Recently, both Mama Cat and Mama at Law were greeted by signs at the childcare center warning them of the latest outbreak of a contagious disease.  For Mama Cat, it was a warning that several children had contracted Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease.  She said that when she dropped Baby Bird off for Mothers' Morning Out, he was the only child there and the smell of bleach had replaced the toys.  The center had taken the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of this ailment.  Yet six days guessed it...Baby Bird began to break out in the easily distinguishable sores that give HFM its name.  Luckily, he seemed to feel no worse for wear and paid no attention to the sores.  For Mama at Law, the sign read RVS was spreading around the children.  Sure enough, when P Buddy got home that night, he started a coughing spasm.  His doctor later confirmed that he had it during his 'well' check up.  He, too, seems to be in good spirits and mending nicely.

I just visited Baby Bird last week.  His family is having to move after the landlord sold the house they were living in...a year before their lease was up!!  In the midst of it, Baby Bird caught another bug, this time a stomach one, and passed it around to Mama Cat and Jaybird. 

Well, you know the saying...

"What doesn't kill you will make you stronger!"  I know some folks who are much stronger now.  I just wouldn't try to tell them that just yet. 

Ay yi yi~
