Someday, none of us will be sick

weeeee!
  • Trish's been recovering all week.
  • Frankie barfed throughout the night (does she look sick to you?) and Trish took care of her all night - I owe you big time hon.
  • I've been unhealthily obsessed with fixing our home with all its nifty surprises the sellers left us (and forgot to disclose; hee, hee, aren't they funny?).
We should be able to go out in public together by June. Hopefully.

That happened to us last month - everyone kept getting some kinda of bug and the whole house would be down.

I really hated taking the offspring to daycare when she was younger because it was guaranteed that she would get the latest nasty that was going around...and school isn't much better. Has Frankie taken the chicken pox vaccine?

Dave said...

Good question, I think so, I'll definitely check her papers, she just had her 4 yr check up.

Yeah, daycare, may as well go around licking water fountains. Probably less risky at getting sick.

Clam said...

Yes, she has had the chicken pox vaccine. No WAY am I letting her go through that.

Rosie said...

Annie's pediatrician was against giving the vaccine to healthy kids - said it wasn't harmful for kids to get the pox...so we got to go through a week of whiny crying itchy 7 year old...whee!!

Dave said...

Ouch, you never forget weeks like that.

Rosie said...

I have pictures I am saving for blackmail later on...muhahhaha

Rosie, I can't believe a pediatrician would say that. Perhaps you should tell him/her about meningitis, encephalitis, Reye's syndrome, myocarditis, cerebellar ataxia, Guillain-Barre syndrome, necrotizing fasciitis, purpura fulminans, shingles... The list of potentially debilitating and/or fatal complications of chickenpox goes on and on.

Yeah, usually it's just an itchy nuisance (if you're willing to ignore the possibility of flareups in later life leading to shingles), but the death rate in the US is close to 1/10,000. And among survivors, there are deaf kids, blind kids, arthritic kids, amputees...

Not my kid.

Clam -

It wasn't long after that I gave that Doctor the heave-ho. I had a "managed" insurance plan and they assigned me this doctor. Once I switched insurance, I found a new more reasonable doctor ASAP. I have a feeling that this doctor was doing what the insurance wanted more than anything else... oh well... My daughter is now a whiny crying grumpy sixteen year old so I count my blessing...

Rosie - I bet she's a blast. I hope we can introduce her to Frankie sometime.
