We were exposed 10 days ago (lots of hugging/lollipop/water bottle sharing)....so I am expecting someone in my family to break out this weekend!! (kiddos are almost 7, almost 4 and almost 1)....

 

I'm all stocked on goodies from our naturopath doc...hoping I didn't waste my money! HA!

 

Our friends who had the pox are all about cleared up but they did spread it to friend's of theirs who visited them a couple days prior to us...

 

I'll keep you all posted Peace.gif

I'm in Yarmouth and my kids are on their first day of at least 16 days home from school since they haven't had chicken pox yet. I am hoping to make the most of this time and try REALLY hard to get them exposed. My kids are 9, 7, and 6 and we're willing to travel for some pox! They are more upset than I thought they'd be...especially my middle one who is missing being an arctic hare in her class play. I'm upset too...not that I love school...and am always psyched for days with my kids...but this was so sudden and has kind of rocked our world...anyway, let us know if you find any!

MaineMamaof3, is the school making you stay home because they are unvaccinated for CP? Is there a case of CP in the school? We just finished exposure 4 for CP, my DS still has not caught it. I had his titers done and they say he still have no immunity... I was starting to wonder if he had caught a really mild case one of the first times, but the doc says no. Guess I will be on the hunt for CP with you again :(

I'm guessing this died out?  Any further updates for this general area?

Interesting. We had it last summer, right around the 4th of July. We had traveled to the manchester nh area, and then the york me area. Our girls randomly caught it. I wish I had know about this site so we could have shared!
