Seeing Spots

From all my ramblings yesterday, thinking we had got away with just a few spots, is quickly turning into a very rapid spread.

Yesterday we had six - today I'm guessing triple that 'and' they are still multiplying.....almost before my very eyes. I am tired though.

From tiny little pin prick red dots, are within twelve hours turning into nasty little blisters. And I can still see more 'tiny little dots' developing. Spreading from the little boo's back, around to her chest, all in her hair and behind her ears and now I fear her face.

She's been ever so good though - that's my baby boo - not complaining or scratching, just getting on with being ill and getting better.

Thank you for all your kind words and invaluable advice yesterday.

I knew about the bicarb bath, but the Calomine cream, as opposed to the lotion - horrible itchy, scratch inducing smelly stuff - has been a complete saver. Thank you.

She's zonked - I'm zonked, but hey ho.......rough with the smooth.....and a whole lot of caffeine - for me of course.
