Fuck My Hat

The Prawn has chicken pox.

This would not normally be a problem.

But I've never had them.

I'm at itchcon 1.

Oh, you poor baby! I'll send oatmeal baths and Calamine lotion!

Never had them? How have you managed that?

It's such a cliche, but it's good to get them out of the way early. P had them over her first birthday and now that all these kids around her are getting them I needn't worry!

Godspeed dear.

According to the BBC site, 1 in 10 cases of chicken pox go unnoticed. She's got a grand total of 3 pox on her back. Let's hope it stays that way!

Good luck...

Uncomforting anecdote: my cousin recently got chicken pox for the second time. Because she'd had it as a child it was a while before medical science tumbled to the diagnosis. Initially they thought she had scabies.

Hope your Prawn is better soon and that you escape.

Oh, poor thing! Major suckage.

The joys of parenthood are never-ending.
