Just came across this response to "Melanies Marvelous Measles"




It includes the story "Measles, A Dangerous Illness" by Roald Dahl  - the author of "Georges Marvelous Medicine" among many other children's books, and father of a daughter who died age seven of (a rare) brain swelling due to measles infection. 


I posted in Mindful Vaccination because I don't want to debate it right now. Actually it's made me quite upset. But I thought some of the mothers here might appreciate knowing it exists. 

Mother of two living in UK. Daughter (2007) born in USA, son (2010) born here. I'm pro natural birth, midwife care, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby wearing and a keen advocate of cloth diapering. I'm a full time working research scientist (physical sciences). Vaccines save lives.
