Would you believe me if I told you that this morning Adrian (my 4 year old son) came down with chicken pox?? Three days after I blogged about it...

Over a week ago he had a fever for 12 hours, and slept most of the day. Then he was perfectly fine. This morning woke up with about 8 spots. I was trying to figure out whether they were flea bites...or what in the world they could be.

By noon, his 8 spots...are 80+ spots, and blistering. He is running around the house, "I have chicken fox!!!!" "I have the chicken fox!!!!" No other symptoms, no fever. Hmmm.

Oh wow! Hope all goes well! Have fun with the "fox!" : )

That is ironic. My essential oils desk reference suggests adding lavender or melaleuca oil to calamine lotion and dabbing on the spots--I'm sure it will be mostly to take the itch away, but it may help the spots fade faster, as well.

Good luck! Hope it doesn't spread!

Hi, missed you last night. Chicken fox how cute. David is more excited for him than anything. We'd like to see a picture. Libby

I hope he gets better quick! I missed you last night too, it's just not the same when you're not around. :(
Hopefully this doesn't last too long.
Tell Bear I say Hi,
I love ya!

Prayers for your little guy.

Eeesh. Glad he's feeling so well, though.

Hope the blistering stays under control. My son still has several scars... :(
