Yesterday, Day 5, 6yo probably could have gone back to school, but he was still a tad bit itchy, otherwise fine. Oh, and I noticed on day 4 that he had some spots IN his mouth, just under his upper lip, but he said he couldn't even feel them.
Baby actually went to her scheduled wbv yesterday.
I didn't want to lose the appointment, plus this way it's documented that she had pox, and the doctor was happy to take my word for it about the other kids, but said we could draw titers at her 1 year appointment to be sure
, but I said I know what pox look like thanks, I had them at age 15, but she just wanted to offer it since she said many parents come in with kids they think have chicken pox apparently and she tries to assure them that it something else, so they usually check titers then. Anyhow...
Some of the baby's spots had gotten pussier, and she had a low fever, which also happened to 6yo the day before they crusted over, though she was more uncomfortable. She also took 4 naps yesterday! (usually only takes 2) and had little appetite except for nursing. She had really acted fine until yesterday, I think the spots were getting itchier, so I finally caved and gave her a little acetaminophen and Benadryl. After the Benadryl kicked in she slept really well last night. (Of course Dada came home last night--yes, he's been away all week during this--so that might have helped too.)
And 6yo asked for some lotion on some spots last night before bed.
Day 6 - 6yo hasn't mentioned any itching at all so far today.
Baby woke up in a better mood, no noticable fever. So I'd so we're almost done....until round 2! which I expect will hit around the weekend of the 26th.
