My Child Has Chicken Pox

"Chickenpox or chicken pox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV).[1] It usually starts with vesicular skin rash mainly on the body and head rather than at the periphery and become itchy, raw pockmarks, which mostly heal without scarring."--Wikipedia

Timeline:

Wednesday: bad cough through the night
Thursday: stay home from school bc of cough
Friday: still home from school
Saturday: feeling better but coughing
Sunday: can go out but cough still there
Monday: enough already! Go to doctor for cough - throat swab for strep done
Tuesday: school. cough gone. happy dance.
Wednesday: spot on lower abdomen. Probably hasn't had a shower. Go to school
Wednesday night: hmmm...11 spots now.
Thursday: back to doctor. Strep throat results: moderate strep - prescription for pencilling given. Spots are probably a skin reaction to something.
Friday: at doctor's AGAIN. Those spots have blistered. CHICKEN POX. 24 exactly
Friday night: 51 pox.

And there is a whole sidestory about how I'm 9 mos pregnant and am 85% sure I had chicken pox as a child (didn't everyone of my generation have chicken pox?!) but a little worried that my childhood memories aren't completely right and late pregnancy + chicken pox = complications. I could go into my dash to get a blood test to see if I'm immune. The considering a "plan" in case other child develops them in the next few weeks and I give birth (baby can't come home to chicken pox).

There is all that...but really dear readers...I am overwhelmed tired...and uncomfortably pregnant...and need to run an oatmeal bath for the child formerly known to you all as Thing 1 - but now referred to as "Spot".

Chicken pox advice and virtual hugs accepted in the comment section...

Oh my goodness! You've had quite a week. I hope everyone is healthy when the new baby decides to make an appearance.

That is a crazy week. Sorry that you're feeling so overwhelmed. We went through chicken pox last year over the Christmas holidays. Girl #1 got them and then 21 days later, Girl #2 got them. Oh so fun.

Hope that everyone is feeling better soon.

Thank you for the hopes & wishes.

Hopefully, this is the last we'll see of the pox.

I am so sorry to hear. I remember when I was a child and had the pox. It wasn't pleasant, and because it was close to Christmas, I missed out on a lot.

All the best!
