A Pox on Your House

Well it sounds like my sweet nephew, Brennan, has the chicken pox. He does have responsible parents who took him on time to get his varicella vaccine, but I guess he drew the short straw and still got the chicken pox! I am praying hard that he doesn't give it to his baby sister, Ella. I also pray that he doesn't give it to his daddy who actually never had the chicken pox. Maybe Todd has a super human immunity to the chicken pox. I luckily got the chicken pox after sharing a condo at Myrtle Beach with our good family friends, the Millers. Eric most graciously gave me the chicken pox, but Todd beat it! We shared a bed and long car ride, but no pox for him!! It just makes me itch when I look at the pictures of me during my chicken pox episode. Does everyone have one of those crazy pictures? Anyone have a really cool chicken pox scar?

I keep praying for Todd, Candace, Brennan, and baby Ella. I guess it is a blessing in disguise that Todd is separated from them while their house is finishing up. Their poor family is having some crazy, stressful times!!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Oh no! Poor Brennan! And I hope Todd doesn't get it!!!

I caught the pox in 7th grade from my dear little brother. I distinctly remember the Aveeno baths. Yuck.

Poor little Brennan! I can't believe Todd has never had it. Matt so graciously gave it to me when I was 3 years old. The good thing about getting it that young is you don't remember how miserable you are. I know I had it, but don't remember.
