Any chicken pox outbreaks in the Puget Sound area? Northern Oregon? Eastern Washington/Yakima/Lower Valley?

We attended a pox party about 4 days ago, so I'll keep you posted - hopefully we'll be hosting our own pox party here soon!!

Ooh, subbing in hopes of some pox! I have friends that had it, but it was the same time as one of my kids had poison oak. I thought that would be a little bit cruel.

It's been 7 days since our pox exposure, and today my DS woke up with a low grade fever, cough and runny nose. Do you think there's any connection?

My friend brought her daughter to the same pox party I went to, so there is a chance that even if my kids don't get it, that her DD will. She said that she'd be glad to share, too. I will for sure keep you posted!

We are on the eastside of Puget Sound & interested in pox party too. I keep hoping their friends would get it, but most are vac'd. My bil had shingles awhile back but the boys didn't contact any pox from it. So please keep us posted too. Thanks.

If anyone ends up catching them, I'd love to meet up and expose my 2-year olds. My older kids have had them but my little guys weren't born yet then.
