A Pox on Our House

That's right folks, Annika has the chicken pox.

The red bumps she got yesterday (not so unusual with her skin) grew little yellow hats overnight. That, plus itching equals 7-10 days of quarantine at our house. Luckily, we don't think she was contagious at her birthday party on Saturday (stay tuned for the birthday post later in the week). Doubly lucky that her friend Whitney has not had the pox or the vaccination so she is coming over to play and get exposed tomorrow. As ordered by the doc, we are keeping the girls in separate rooms at all times (which sucks!) and washing hands like surgeons.

Wow, 7-10 days of quarentine, I feel for you! I hope it goes by fast.....
