Eek, I think it is the real thing. DS has a slight fever, and several spots on his legs and bottom, each spot with a little dot in the middle. It's only been a few hours, so we'll be watching the progression.|
If anyone is interested in a pox party in Knoxville, TN, let me know - it's Christmas, but we might be able to work something out for Boxing Day or the weekend. :) Also, I'm willing to send care packages!
However, one word of caution. With rather poor timing, I got DS a measles (monovalent, no mumps or rubella) shot 8 days ago. :( If he's shedding, there's the potential that a CP lollipop could turn into a measles lollipop. It doesn't seem very likely, but it isn't beyond the realm of possibility. So... proceed at your own risk, please, and only ask for a pop or party if you feel fully safe with the chance that someone will get measles.
And Merry Christmas, everyone!
