Because we're not sick enough around here
Sidney got the chicken pox from his vaccine, and Kyra apparently did not get total immunity from her vaccine back in the summer and has caught it as well. So, we're going to hermit it up this week. Poor Kyra and Gyven will be so disappointed to miss school and speech therapy on Monday, but I don't want to risk them giving it out to their classmates (Gyven's been cleared for school on Tuesday so long as he remains symptom free, we just don't want to risk his medically fragile classmates contracting this one). Kyra and Sidney have been prescribed an anti-viral medication and tylennol or motrin as needed, as well as oatmeal baths. So tomorrow we'll sneak out just long enough to pick up some oatmeal bath supplies, and then we'll curl up with some good movies and lots of liquids and hopefully neither of them develop any complications!
