The Pox

Little Girl has chicken pox. We were expecting it as some of the children at church have had it. She first got the spots on Tuesday and the first couple of days didn't seem to ill apart from being happy to sit on my knee cuddling most of the time but the last two days have been worse. Last night we had to take her to the out of hours doctor because she has an infected spot (the most common complication in children under five) and she now has to have three different medicines - paracetamol for the fever, anti-histamine for the itching and an antibiotic for the infection. She doesn't mind the first two but the antibiotic tastes horrible so there is lots of crying when we give it to her (but she is good as she will take it even though she doesn't like it). We've also been giving her garlic and honey which we always give for colds but didn't think of doing with this until she'd been ill a couple of days. If you feel so inclined, please pray that she will be feeling better soon.

Oh! I'll be praying for her, sweet thing. Praying for you as well.
