Again I complain about these sick kids! Again and again and again and in case you missed the first installment check it out here. So last week that mom of the boy who I had cared for the week prior called to inform me he had chicken pox. Awesome right? So then Monday I decided to bring my princess and 3 other toddlers to work for a play group, not to mention the other customers we had. Well CPM (chicken pox mom) called to ask if her CPS (chicken pox son) could come to play!#@#!
I said "hmm let me double check on that and call you back." Our company sick policy just states that "a child having chicken pox may return once all the spots had scabbed over". So I frantically searched the internet for some, any reason to not allow the boy to come. It just seemed too soon. Everything I found said about a week to ten days, it had been exactly 10 days. I called my boss for some back up on the matter and she said let him come. So I had to let him come.
Now what I did not tell you is that this is a family with three kids it was the middle one who had the chicken pox. CPM showed up with all three kids!!! Any idiot knows that the siblings usually get the pox between 1-3 weeks after the first so they were in prime contagious season. I called the owner again and told her what was going down, she asked if the kids had any visible signs of CP. They did not but they usually don't. After all I am a medical internet professional.
So we had to keep the 3 infected kids for several hours.
Now today the baby is here and she def has the chicken pox. She has fresh bumps, and cold symptoms.
And her mom is not answering her phone. I too am having all the symptoms of having the pox cept for the rash. My throat and head hurt and I just generally feel ick. But I have had the CP before so supposedly I am safe. So if I disappear from blogger world for a while, I am not on hiatus, or vacation, I am sick as hell with Chicken pox (shingles) or dead.
