Just capping this thread off.

 

Today is day 6.  There have been no new pocks in about 2 days, but she still has most of the pox.  She says a few of them have fallen off (which I am going to take to mean the scab has fallen off).  She peaked at about 80 pocks - and had a low grade fever once or twice.  Overall it was very mild, and honestly I have seen colds that were worse.   I am also had a mild case of pox as a child, and my oldest also had a mild case…..it makes me wonder if tendency towards severity is genetic?  


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

are you done? don't you have some boys you are waiting on? did any other friends of the girl in question who gave to yours, also give to any others?

 

 

I know mine was sever and my DD was moderate, we exposed our DS and only got a high fever/coldish and no spots

 

My grandmother kept wonderful records on my mom and her brother - he had them according to grandmother (all over!!) and my mother didn't but she had her titers checked 5 years ago and at 70+ she showed full immune- who knows?!

Nope - my family is done.  My 2 older kids had the CP years ago.

 

We did go to visit friends about 2-3 days into the illness; their mother is hoping they come down with the CP.  We will have to wait about 2 more weeks to see if the virus (which we think is CP) took.

Well, DD is long over the chicken pox.  She might have one small scar near her armpit but I suspect it might fade in time.

 

She gave the chicken pox to one of the boys from the chicken pox party, who in turn gave it to his brother (sadly for the mom not at the same time!) and they have infected a friend.

 

All of these moms wanted their kids to have chicken pox, so I am glad we helped spread it around.  One child ended up with a moderate case as opposed to mild, but the mom is still okay with it.  

 

A little OT, but DD was thrilled to have the CP.  It almost seemed like a rite of passage for her, although we have never talked about it in such ways.
