I never posted back about my son...he had a really good exposure 3 plus weeks ago...for goodness sakes the boy chewed her gum and shared candy!!! This was the FOURTH time in his life we have tried...and yet he still did not come down with the pox...just unbelievable!!! I mean really, what does it take?!! (We have had his titers done and he has no pox antibodies.) Weirdness. Sorry all!

My two poxy kids are looking forward to sharing today!

Thanks for sharing! Henry had a wonderful time, wanted to go back all the way home.

Hoping that (at least) one of my LOs pick it up. The countdown begins!!

I hope some of that virus sticks for someone! We certainly gave it a good try. It was the cutest thing when my little girl ran after bemommy to give her one of her chicken pox before she drove away!

Lol, the fun thign about having chicken pox (we did about 1 year ago) was meeting some of the mdc mommies(-; I was tempted to find out where you are because I'm sure it would be good to re expose everyone, but it's just too busy right at the moment.

Sounds like your lo's had a not-too-bad case? We had one mild case and one grumpy, miserable yucky nasty case (although much better than a few others had).

bemommy/others- as hard as it sounds, I hope your lo's come down at relatively the same time. Will be one crazy week, but then you'll be done. What I've heard is that siblings can transmit it pretty bad too one another- which seemed to be the case with us. A friend of mine had 3 kids and the 2nd got it, then the 3rd got it from the 2nd and the last one had a miserable case. I didn't find out till too late that it is recommended you try to minimize contact between siblings to lesson the harshness and we were encouraging them to share everything. Of course, it could just be the luck of the draw.

Paige, sorry t is still being stubborn about the pox, lol.

Our experience has been different from Jessica's. DS1 was really really sick and his exposure was very light. Still getting new pox and high fever on day 6. We didn't share his pox because he was just too sick. His siblings got it from him with lots of close personal contact and they have had a pretty normal easy time of it. It hasn't knocked them down for a moment unless you count the round the clock nursing my 2 yo has been doing. I think it is probably just a matter of different kids reacting differently.

Hope all is going well in the Allbrightmama house.
Be told me about this thread and I've been thinking it is time for some exposure.
I know there is a Quincy mama whose family now has it.

Regarding minimizing cases between siblings:

Just to say, I do to sorta wonder if the whole thing isn't just a little 'myth' or perhaps just the drs own experience. However, enough people have said this that I wonder if there might be some truth to it.
BTW, I'm not saying seperate siblings or be drastic about it, but in our case, at one point I could have said: okay that's enough. He is either going to get chicken pox or he wont. Now I'm goign to enforce boundaries like I would if she had a cold or whatever (ie, stop letting them share the kazoo's).

Anyways, just wanted to put that out there for those that have siblings. It was something that I really didn't have enough time to research and after the fact I wish I had known more. Remember, they are either going to get it, or not. They are either going to get a bad case, regular case, or mild case. Those things we cannot really guess. After the fact, I just reflected that I could have had more control over how much I exposed my son.

Hth's and always wishing for the 'good enough' cases...

Jessica - are you thinking that extra exposure can cause a worse case?
post #54 of 361
That's the implication, yes. According to 2 doctors

Did anyone visit allbrightmama who lives in Central or Western MA by any chance?
post #57 of 361
We are no longer contagious! I hope someone else will be able to pass them along in two weeks...

Jessica - I have heard the same thing repeatedly but not consistently about the amount of exposure determining the severity of the outbreak. In your case it appears to be true. In my case it doesn't. I just don't want anyone to feel guilty over something they had no control over or fear the inevitable (as I did) if it isn't. If it is true it isn't set in stone. I think you are right though that living together should be enough exposure and there really isn't any need for siblings to go to great lengths to ensure transmission of the virus.

Hope that everyone finds the pox they are looking for and that they all are, as Jessica said, 'good enough' cases!

Yes, you mommas are just better and quicker at saying it than I am...

living together should be enough exposure and there really isn't any need for siblings to go to great lengths to ensure transmission of the virus.

I've NEVER been known for being concise or crystal clear.... and trying to do things while the kids are buzzing around me doesn't help. Ok, off to play chef.
