Did you have any luck getting CP? I'm in Brooklyn and am really trying to expose my daughter. Thanks so much,
My daughter got chicken pox from our playdate in Boston 2 weeks ago. This was our third exposure, so it wasn't easy.
So this is the end of day 2, and we're open to having playdates. I posted on NY, NJ, and PA since I'm in NYC, but I'm posting here too in case anyone is willing to travel longer distances.
PM me and give your email (PM is awkward for me to use) if you're interested.
NYC is just out of range for us as our car is in the shop. But thanks for posting!! Sweetmilo, will you post if you get pox after your playdate? We didn't have any blooms after our playdate in Boston at the beginning of May. I had child #2 tested last week and am awaiting the results. Incidentally, Michelle at East Side Laboratory in Providence is an excellent phlebotomist. My son (3 yrs) and I both had blood work done and neither of us felt a thing. Not a thing.
Keep your pox posts coming!!!! Thank you everyone!!!!
We are in CT- but way north in CT. I cannot do a day trip to NYC. :(
Sweetmilo- if you do get them- PLEASE post here! ( I see you are in CT)
My 11 year old NEVER got them, even after being exposed several times. I also have a 2.5 year old and an 8 mo old.
I would love for the younger ones to get them, but Im skeptic about the 11 year old now. I know he would get it bad if he did get them. IDK what to do about him. Any advice? (Please and thank you!) xoxo
Just bumping this up.
Still looking for chicken pox. Anyone??? We would LOVE to get this asap!
By the way, does anyone know of the possibility/challenges surrounding getting it from an elderly person with shingles? Thanks for your thoughts.
My brother (28 yrs old) recently had shingles and played with my daughters before he knew he was sick. He had a rash and wasn't feeling so hot, but hadn't had it checked out yet. They spent several hours together and my girls (aged 2 and 4) didn't get a spot. On that note, we didn't get a spot at a pox playdate either... Still hoping.
I just sent a PM to you acory23- and please LMK if you get them lucymay6. Id love to have a playdate- but its also cutting it close to our vacation. eep!
Bean's fever seems to have broken. She has an angry red rash and a few more spots but it looks like she is starting to feel better. I dont think she is contagious anymore.
Good luck to all who came to visit. :)
OK folks. Yellow alert here. 14 days after exposure in Hull our 6 year old is coughing hard enough to wake her up and make her gag. She seems a bit warm and has some red spots behind her ears. Will have to take a closer look in the light of day but this might be it.
I have an appointment at 2:40 today to see what is going on. If this is the pox, it is a very mild case. We were up in Maine and everyone was getting bitten by bugs so I thought they were just bug bites. In retrospect I think the 3 year old had ONE pox. (pock? what is the singular form of pox?) And the 6 year old has actually had one vaccination shot so I wasn't expecting her to get it. But now she has about 15 bumps on her back and neck. Plus coughing and tummy pain and headaches. Will keep you all posted.
