Otherwise I think they will continue to fade over the next few weeks and not be noticeable very soon.
no he didnt really mess with them the worst were/are his back

We were so glad to have you and Tristan! I think it's only been about a week, right? That would definitely be on the early side (normally it's 10-21 days, but the majority start showing symptoms around day 12, I think), but I sure hope it works!! Gabriel's first spots looked like TINY little bug bites. Much smaller than mosquito bites or even ant bites (maybe half the size of ants). Made me wonder about small spiders or other little bugs, ya know? But by the next day he had lots more and some had the blisters.

Keep us posted!!

Hey all! I have seen some posts mention Yahoo groups for Austin...I would be interested in exposing my DS to the pox, so if anyone has them now in Austin (or knows of a yahoo group where I can find a pox party), please let me know! (ETA: found the yahoo group and joined)

ETA: I will be in the Dallas area all next week, so if there are any outbreaks up there, I'd be interested

Thanks!! I totally would but I almost lost my job over chicken pox so I think I need to steer clear of any other contagious illnesses.
