Keep us updated on your wife Hedge. Hang in there!

I hope so to. There is a vaccine if it's a concern.

She's doing better each day. Fortunately, she says the itching isn't unbearable.
The worst part was a day or so before the "spots" appeared when she was sick as a dog and then while in the hospital she had one night where her temperature was over 103, so I'm actually happy she was there instead of at home.

It was a measles outbreak not Chickenpox. Close enough though.
Quote:
An investigation into an outbreak in a high school in a town that was heavily hit by the virus found that about half of the cases were in teens who had received the recommended two doses of vaccine in childhood in other words, teens whom authorities would have expected to have been protected from the measles virus.

It's generally assumed that the measles vaccine, when given in a two-dose schedule in early childhood, should protect against measles infection about 99 per cent of the time. So the discovery that 52 of the 98 teens who caught measles were fully vaccinated came as a shock to the researchers who conducted the investigation.

Hey. Get vaccinated, or not. Doesn't matter to me.
Some people have a "thing" about vaccines and while some concerns are valid, those who say things like "The flu shot gave me the flu" have no idea what they are talking about.
