The first week of the school holidays, Chickenpox struck our house. It’s been crazy, hence why I have not spent much time online and abandoning my blog for a few weeks. First Willow came down with it, not too badly at all. It started with a few spots on her tummy, and a couple of her face. That was pretty much it.
Then 11 days after Willow first started getting spotty, Olive started getting the tell-tale rash. She was hit much harder with the virus than Willow, pushing a temperature of 40*c all night on the second day of the rash, and becoming a little delirious and tearful. Poor baby.
Then, poor Ivy came down with the chickenpox. I was hoping that she would avoid the virus because I am still breastfeeding her and passing on my immunity. She doesn’t have the rash as bad as Olive, and definitely has a milder case, thank goodness!
So lots of cuddles, calamine lotion, oat baths and treats (The girls got a couple of new DVDs) were dished out in our house. I though, have been going stir crazy from cabin fever, I have eaten my way through the entire pantry and done more housework these last few weeks alone than I have possibly done in a whole year. While Willow is well over the virus, Olive and Ivy are now nearly finished scabbing over and we are ready to venture out again very soon. Whooooooooooop!!
