Chickenpox !

My son has come down with chickenpox. The good thing is that the constitutional symptoms were over when we made the diagnosis and he is pretty much OK now except for the rash. And that too is mild. That is the advantage of having it at a younger age. Hopefully, the itchy stage will be brief and mild too. For now, he is hugely enjoying his time off from school and it comes to my shoulders to keep him entertained. We expect his sister to develop the symptoms in about ten days time. InshaAllah it will pass smoothly with her also.


  1. Good Morning. I love browsing your blog. Love your new project and the color of the yarn.

    I hope your son is feeling well soon. Aveeno Oatmeal baths are great for the itch.

    My son had a mild case of chickenpox and when he was ten years old he developed shingles.

    And yes my daughter the old of my two children got chickenpox first and then several days later my son got a mild case.

    When I was a child my siblings and my cousins who lived downstairs got chickenpox and the mumps at the same time.
    I just remember my mother and aunt dabbing us all over with pink stuff.

    Have a wonderful Thursday.

  2. It is good that they get it and get it over with now, even though it is tough on the mom! I hope JV can have as light of a case as his is!

  3. Thank you for your kind thoughts!
