My strong almost 9 year old boy has chicken pox. Actually chicken pox symptoms. All those itchy eruptions on his skin from head to toe to his hands and soles of his feet. But this happened after some soar throat and painful lymph nodes below his ears and then after the chicken pox on the skin came the tummy pain. This all happened when I wasn’t looking, when the boy was out of my site. We were preoccupied because of the monsoon rains that brought in the flood of August 2012 that we were forced to evacuate our home.
