Her Medical File From China Said....

... that she had the Chicken Pox when she was 2.  As per medical guidance, she had the Varicella Vaccine at 3.5 - shortly after we met.    So why did she go to bed Wednesday night happy and healthy, yet wake up  Thursday morning looking like she had rolled around in a tub of red confetti?  As of last night, we were still trying to cover all the new marks with our good friend, Cal@dryl.    We also made the mad dash to the pharmacy for a few boxes of oatmeal bath powder.  Ben@dryl... no problem... it is a staple in our home!  


These are pink... but not necessarily what Lilli wanted for Easter!  : )  Hopefully today we will see fewer new bumps and we can consider this a somewhat of a mild case....

Joey - my oldest who is going on 20 - had the Chicken Pox twice - the second time around (at age 5), was so bad, he had actual pox on his little eyeballs.  It was quite scary.... but he recovered with no problems.  Hopefully it will be the same for Miss Lilli...

Until then, I guess I need to practice the phase "Stop Scratching".....

oh poor sweet Lilli! I hope her Easter basket has something a little more fun!

Guess what? We found a yorkie poo at a local animal shelter (through petfinder!) cross your fingers that he is still available and will be our next baby! Now to think of a name that is as good as "Tucker"!

Oh no!!!! That is just not good! I really hope that she gets over them quickly - it kind of makes me itch just thinking about it!
