So I've been slacking. This always happens. At the time when life is the most fun and there is the most going on when I should be blogging the most because there is more to blog I get so busy and tired that I slack up on blogging. Forgive me. Let's catch up. I am off work. Does this mean vacation for me? NOoooo. This is the time when everything I was saving up to do has to get done. It's count down time. 3 days until Christmas. All the presents are bought, wrapped and under the tree. Lightening has been keep an eye on things around here. He has been on the hat rack, on Santa's little goodie tray, Hiding in the china cabinet, on the kitchen table and on the back door curtain. He is a busy fellow. We are all awaiting Santa's arrival.
Last night Trey spent the night with Nana and Pa. Nana called and asked if I knew of anyone in his class at school that had chicken pox. She said he had some bumps on his shoulder and back that were a little itchy. Today they are more pronounced and there seems to be more of them. For the most part they dont itch but earlier today they were pretty itchy so we dabbed calamine on him and he said he was embarrassed he would look like a girl with pink spots on him. Since then they havent itched at all. He is doing really well. I am actually not 100% sure it's the pox. There arent very many more and they dont seem to be progressing. They arent itching him much either. He has only told me once they itched. I sent Karen pics and she said they certainly looked like them but it was a little curious he had them because he was vaccinated and he should not get them. So if he does indeed have a full blown case I should take him to the Dr. to let them document it and they might even want to do some blood work to see if he is not building up the antibodies to the virus. This could be an issue later in life. So we wait and see. I will need to decide in the next 2 days because the Dr. office will be closed. I guess this is a good time to have them since we are both off school and work. He is the only child in his class to have perfect attendance still. I can hardly believe that. My sickly little baby that was in the hospital and constantly in the Dr's office is a healthy, smart boy who has perfect attendance. I'm proud of him. Soph is young enough that if she does get exposed she should get a mild case if that. JD has had chicken pox so he should be fine. I however, have not. If I have it was so mild we didnt notice it when Jenifer had them. I hope I was exposed because if I get them now I will be in bad shape probably. I am anxious to see hoe he looks tomorrow when he wakes up. Time will tell.
