bit of a poxy update

So the results came back on Thursday and Miss L definitely has chicken pox. I also had a blood test to check if I was immune (not something you want to get during pregnancy) and I am, so that's a relief.

Day 1 - noticed 3 spots. Nothing unusual about her behaviour. Couldn't get in to the GP that day.

Day 2 - few more spots, mainly behind ears and on face. GP confirmed chicken pox and did a swab to be 100% certain.

Day 3 - swab came back positive. More spots appeared. Very upset especially at bed time. Ended up passing out on Nanna's bed.

Day 4 - right eye very swollen. More spots. Extremely upset and a temperature of 37.7. Gave her some Zyrtec as recommended by the chemist to relieve the itching. Fell asleep as soon as her head hit the mattress and slept for nearly 12 hours.

Day 5 - eye still swollen. Spots looking angry. Very quiet all day but happy. Ate all her Nutella sandwich by herself without throwing it on the floor. NOTICED A TOP TOOTH HAS CUT THROUGH! Zyrtec again before bed, but this time didn't want to go to sleep at all. Resorted to putting her in the pram and she crashed within minutes. It seems that every time we get her sleeping in her cot something happens to mess it all up (last time was constipation and a trip to the hospital).

Day 6 - eye swelling has disappeared. She's in a happy mood but didn't want to nap in her cot so she's in the pram again. Fingers crossed she goes to sleep better tonight without too much of a fight.
