Célia got affected by a nasty chickenpox at her school. It is reported that at least 5 of her class members got this infectious disease. I noticed 2 red bumps on her face when she came from school thursday afternoon. In the morning, it has become several spots on her face and on her body. I took an appointment right away in the afternoon. The doctor said that she needed to be quarantined at home for 10 days.
The worst period was during day 2 and day 3, she couldn't sleep well at night and itchy and scratchy all the time. And she's becoming cranky - which is normal.
Looking at the rash, I really could not believe that she could go back to school in 10 days.
Fortunately it was a long weekend (monday off) and I asked my husband to take tuesday off as well. I really needed a hand to cope with everything while kid being sick. I tried to make her busy with activities so that she will forget to scratch. Painting helps a lot. It calms her down, even when she's not sick. During the quarantine, she did hand painting, sponge painting and even helping me baking some muffins.
