The both of us were pretty resigned to Hannah experiencing chicken pox earlier today, especially after hearing from friends and relatives, and also matching the pictures we were seeing online versus what we were seeing on Hannah. I mean, this is what she looks like today:
Her spots have become more pronounced and larger from yesterday evening. We were starting to make contingency plans and for Ling to be off work for Hannah’s isolation period too.
So it was a collective sigh of relief from the both of us when Ling brought Hannah back to see her PD at noon today, and after an examination, her PD certified her chickenpox free. Apparently, the skin inflammations have not transformed into blisters. So it’s bacterial infection, possibly triggered by something she ate. Her PD said it’s unlikely the medicine, so we’re suspecting it might be an allergic reaction to the Laughing Cow cheese we introduced into her diet several days ago, weird as that sounds.
The funniest thing again is that Hannah seems completely oblivious to her condition and is in her usual cranky and happy-alternating self at the usual times of the day.:)
