Well after a few little false alarms that just turned out to be normal viruses it’s official! Chicken Pox has made itself a home at DWB HQ.
At least twice before we’ve thought BB may have had Pox but when taking him to the doctors he assured us it wasn’t.
On Thursday night I noticed what looked like a wart appearing on his nose and when we were washing his hands and face before bed I noticed something similar on the back of his head.
Well on Friday it became clear it wasn’t a wart…it was the Pox!
After a quick visit to the doctors to confirm, we spent the next few hours cooped up in the house. Plans of play gyms or visits to family were thrown out the window!
Today when checking him, the spots have got worse. They are more visible all over his body.
In himself he’s fine other than his appetite which has clearly diminished after he turned down a ham sandwich! (His favourite lunch).
Other than the fact he looks like a walking, talking dot-to-dot you wouldn’t know he was Ill.
On the other hand The Mrs and I haven’t stopped itching for two days! Reminds me of the episode of Friends where Charlie Sheens character and Phoebe both get Pox and spend the episode trying not to scratch!
It was inevitable he would get it at some point and in some way we hope LB catches it now, that way it’s done and out-of-the-way.
I did suggest holding one of those chicken pox parties we discussed on the podcast once where people bring their kids so they can catch it but The Mrs didn’t approve! Lol
Now. How can we entertain two toddlers for a few days without leaving the house?
Any suggestions welcome!
As always, thanks for reading.
