Chicken Pox...

As most of you know Randy has had shingles for three weeks - they have been very bad and they are very contagious. Shingles is the chicken pox virus...and John is not old enough for the vaccination. I noticed John wasn't his usual chipper self Thursday and Friday...then on Saturday I thought he was getting a horrible diaper rash...but then Monday morning I noticed several small bumps...called MaMa over to inspect and sure enough...he has chicken pox! I wish I could say it hasn't been that bad...you can tell he is miserable...and last night was a long night. We have been giving him an oatmeal bath every 4 to 5 hours and I have some prescription medicine from John's dermatologist that seems to be working! I have heard that the older the child the worse it is...so I am grateful to be getting this over with now...I guess.
