Not so healthy

We are in the midst of an epidemic...5 of my 6 kids have the chicken pox. That might not be so unusual, except that the older ones are 17, 23 and 24. And the older two are in agony. I feel for them, but there's not much I can do except comfort them and send food.

This picture is of my 9 year old, who probably had the least number of spots.

My 19 year swears that he will. not. get. chicken pox.

I'm torn. Part of me hopes that he doesn't. But it would be nice for him to get it over with. It's out of my hands, though.

yikes...we did the same thing at our house all 3 got it withing days of each other but they were little 5, 3, 8 months.

I feel for the older 2 C.P. can be rough on older folks.

Hang in there girl!

Wow! I think all of our kids had the chicken pox when they were younger. I hope the older ones get over it soon and don't spread it to their house mate.. I'm pretty sure he's immune, though.

Hope they all feel better soon! And hope you're coping well!
