I cannot believe it's been 5 months since my last update! FIVE months!! Gah!
There is no way to really catch up that much time on here, so I will just start from the last month.
Near the end of February, I exposed Matthew, Mariah and Kayla to the Chicken Pox. I had actually exposed Breanna as well, but it didn't take. So, on March 12th it all began. Matthew was first with spots and then the next day it was Mariah. On the Wednesday Kayla sprouted them, but nothing on Breanna!
Of course, hanging around with three poxied kids did the trick! Breanna sprouted hers on the 25th.
Everyone is healing up nicely, with various little scabs here and there. Breanna has thr freshest batch of scabs.
They all did really well, and I am so glad to get that over and done with for them. Matthew had the mildest case of them all, with only about 500 or so spots. The girls each had at least 1000 and had them everywhere. Mouths, eyelids, ears, noses, private parts, in between the fingers and toes and on the palms of thier hands. OUCH! Amazingly, not one of them had a fever! They each had a rough day in between the 48-72 hour period when all the blisters are popping and the blisters are very itchy, but other than that, it went really smoothly.
Alex, Alyssa, and Robbie all had it exactly 10 years ago. So now everyone has received a good 'booster' until hopefully somewhere down the road we can be exposed again and refresh our immune systems.
Here's some pics from the adventure:
