I'm betting they gave her an antiviral...I think the effectiveness of these is spotty. I'm trying to remember what I know of them from my pharm class but basically they're not really virus specific, but they somehow interfere with virus replication? Sorta like the HIV drugs or the anti-flu stuff. I'm sure someone else here knows more. It's not something I'd necessarily rely on, but it probably does help some people.
But your original observation makes more sense to me...if it's that frickin' hard to expose your kid to it on PURPOSE...how easy is it really going to be to catch as an adult?? And I bet there are natural things you can do to prevent it from being super serious as an adult too.
Our children make a study of us in a way no one else ever will. If we don't act according to our values, they will know.~Starhawk New User Agreement! http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/user-agreement
