OMG DS has chicken pox........ so so sorry Misdee!!!
I saw a friend and her little girl last week and she had chicken pox. She warned me so I could keep my kids at a safe distance but I want them to get it while they are younger. I managed to get it when I was 14.
we thought dd3 had it at the weekend, turned out to be infected eczema, then on monday i was at my mums, and got a call yesterday saying that my aunt thought she had it, another false alarm. now mieows ds has definatly got it.
Your DH can get vaccinated against chickenpox. I only know because I've been through this myself recently as i never had it as a child and with Ds at nursery I'm terrified he will bring it home to me. ANyway, they blood test you first to see if you have antibodies ( I do, which means I'm immune even though I have never had it), and if you don't have any you can be vaccinated. Apparently, 2/3 of all adults who have never had it are immune anyway, but it might be worth checking out
