He now has the chicken pox. Nothing like I had as a kid- I was covered from head to toe. He has about 30 spots, no blisters, no fever. He just itches. It's supposedly not contagious, but I've still quarantined us, just in case. The worst part has been sleep. He's been sleeping so great for us, but the past 2 nights he's been in bed with me & up every hour or two because of the itching.

Thank You Varicella Vaccine, for Giving My Son the Pox
Yes, it's true. Jack is apparently one of the 3-5% of people who actually get the chicken pox from the vaccination. We've delayed all of his vax, but I've been slowly catching him up on them. Two weeks before school started he got the varicella vaccination so he wouldn't get the chicken pox.
