Oh Joanne, I am a mother of two & my heart went out to you because of your experience. However, I am in the early stages of first experiencing the "pox" w/ my two little guys(5 yrs. & 20 mo.). After reading your post my bloodpressure rose! Please remember that some of us have no details of your experience and can only wonder why your experience was so bad.Please give us inexperienced moms more details so that we know what to look for. I am so glad for you that your child is well now.Thank-you.
