A Pox on our House!

Oh, and Jack came down with the chicken pox this week. He was vaccinated, but it turns out about 30% of kids who are vaccinated get it anyway -- usually a mild case.

Jack's was so mild we didn't really realize he had the pox. 6-8 dots was all, and he didn't complain.

All is well, we are through the contagious portion and looking forward to our trip to Portugal on Friday.

Hopefully the swine flu doesn't become a Euro-Atlantic pandemic and throw a wrench into our plans.

lucky you.
The same happened to us, but I thought it was only 10% of those vaccinated that got it nonetheless.
it's not such an exclusive club after all!
