The pox are coming, the pox are coming!
Uh oh, when the society we live in frowns upon careless hippie mommies who don't vaccinate for every little thing, the phonecall from the school nurse announcing your kid "appears to have the chickenpox" is a dreaded phonecall indeed! This call came Tuesday afternoon, after Skylar had been on an overnight camping trip with her class to camp Tecumseh. She had a "rash" according to the nurse, who thought within a day or two they'd turn into pox. She was right; within that same day Sky's face took on the look of a 16 year old with bad acne and a sunburn. But MAN has she been a trooper! We went to Dr. McGuckin (our naturopath doc who is oh-so-fabuloso) and have been pumping her full of things like Echinacia and Zinc, and L O T S of vitamin C! And although she only broke out 3 days ago, she'll be back in school Monday she's doing so well. Fortunately the school has been great...at least til I leave the room? ;) And oh yeah, chicken pox is going around, EVEN kids who've gotten the shot. So what's the point again.... ?
