It’s been 12 days since I exposed River (on purpose) to chicken pox. This is our second attempt to have him catch the disease, so that he will then have life-long immunity.
I noticed he has a very mild fever tonight, so maybe (fingers crossed) he will start breaking out with spots in the next couple of days. If it doesn’t work this time, I’m going to be convinced that chicken pox isn’t all that easy to catch, after all.
I can’t say that I am looking forward to him being sick and uncomfortable. But, I do look forward to getting it done and out of the way while he is still young. He will be 5 in two months. I was 5 when I had it, and my sister caught it from me, and was 3 at the time. I brought it home from kindergarten, I remember it so vividly!
I’m hoping to post some pictures and an update on his stauts in the next few days.
