pox pics



Here are a couple pictures of little Miss Emma's chicken pox. You can click on the picture to make it bigger, but they are super hard to see in the pictures and most of them are in her hair and diaper area, so can't really get those. As of this morning I counted around 70, so it seems like she is going to have a pretty mild case. (A bad case is 400-500!!) Amen for mommy. I don't think I could have handled a full blown case. She seem a bit itchy and uncomfortable, thus a little fussier than normal, but overall seems to be handling it all very well.


For those that have asked, yes we are pretty sure that I gave the chicken pox to her. Rememember a few weeks ago I told you I had shingles (which are doing MUCH better and nearly gone). Well I probably gave her the chicken pox before I knew what it was and wasn't covering it. Since chicken pox takes 11-23 day to show up it makes sense. I feel terrible because I really thought we were in the clear, and we exposed so many kiddos this past week. Thankfully most everyone has either had the vaccine or the chicken pox. We even got Grace her chicken pox booster yesterday (normally they get it at 4), just to give her a little extra boost of immunity. My pediatrician said 2 is a terrible age for the chicken pox b/c they can't stop the scratching. So we were all for the shot.


Thanks for the sweet thoughts. Hopefully this is the last of our medical drama.
