Kate definitely has some pink spots on her neck, chest, and arms. Could this be chicken pox? We are thinking it probably is. Oh boy! It's one thing to delay the shot because I figure we can get it for them later, and anyway, chicken pox isn't a big deal, right? Now I'm looking at a week in the house, the possibility of Will getting it too (would the antibodies in my milk protect him at this point??), and Eric teaching a modular next week. Oh well. If this is what it is, Dr. Robert Sears says in The Vaccine Book that chicken pox is usually harmless, and that having the disease provides a lifelong immunity that the shot can't provide. He also mentions an antiviral medicine some people take for chicken pox--does anyone know about this? I remember taking oatmeal baths as a kid when I had this--do you just buy this at the store?
