It seems that Violet may be developing chicken pox. She had a fever about 3 days ago, and now has small superficial red dots in her hairline, on her face and neck, and in her diaper area. We'll be keeping a close eye on them to see if they're progressing as chicken pox would. Any good thoughts sent our way would be appreciated, as I've never had chicken pox. The risk for a fetus if a pregnant woman contracts varicella is very real, though congenital varicella syndrome is rare. I'll be contacting my doctor to try to get my titers drawn to determine if I carry immunity (a real possibility).

oh my...good luck. hopefully she doesn't have them, and if she does, hopefully you won't get it! :)

i am starting to doubt my initial diagnosis. the disease progressed just like chicken pox. we'll see how it looks in the morning.

keep us posted...very interested to hear the outcome, hopefully she does not have them for hers, yours and the bean's sake.

i know we were planning on NOT having hailey get the chicken pox vaccination when she turns a year, but eric and i have both had the chicken pox.

good for you. it really is the most useless vaccine...not that i'm one to talk since we're in this pickle but i'm pretty positive upon examination that she's pox free.

sweet. that's excellent news. breathe a sigh of relief now. i can't imagine how that would have been with the pregnancy.

sweetviolet said...

i've never had the pox, either. i'm always worried some little infected frappuccino rat will infect me.g
