OW!




When Mas was banned from his Valentine's Day ceremony, we came home and took him to the doctor. They swabbed one of his blisters on his fingers and yesterday, they called with the results. He has herpes simplex on his fingers. They call it "herpetic whitlow," which apparently just means herpes on his fingers. I have to include a picture or two of it here. Our real trick now is to keep it clean and dry...two words not normally associated with Mas. He is on antibiotics, antiviral, and antibiotic cream. Poor kiddo!
