My dear little girl may have the chicken pox. She has already had a challenging week in her strong attempt to get through her first week back to school. She was vaccinated, so it shouldn't be as bad as I had it as a kid. My sister and I had it together during a winter snow storm.
Thankfully I have some great prescription anti-itch cream on hand. We only had the pink chalomine lotion when I was a kid, which didn't help at all. I often had sore muscles as a kid and relied on Absorbine Junior to get relief. I thought it would also resolve my chicken pox itch. I screamed and cried until my mom gave in, the screamed and cried because it stung so much.
After a brief staffing, we all decided to shorten eldest's day. He can now decide to stay for lunch or come home. Hoping this is temporary, but better than a home bound program. Crocheting a rainbow blanket to keep me cheery.....post coming.
