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.
