Ho hum, four of my students have come down with chicken pox so far. Poor things. I may have caused an epidemic, at least in my class it seems. This means mountains of paper work for our poor nurse and my superintendent is freaking out, not to mention my principal.

My mother had told me over the weekend that she thought I had shingles. This just goes to show me I should always listen to my mother when it comes to stuff with my health. She's generally on the ball, even if she is 4,000 miles away.

So should we call you "Typhoid Tyger?" ha ha... ha. If it's any consolation I figure it's better they get it now than later- I had chicken pox at 19 and it was a horrible experience...

OMG, it took you 28 years to listen to your mother. Should she say something else, now?

even though in Brazil most pediatrians recommend the vaccine, since it is not part of the SUS list, not everyone gets it. In the US, there is a movement against the vaccine and some mothers actually go out of their way to expose their children to chicken pox when young. So, looking on the bright side, maybe you did them a favor. Plus, it is always milder when you get it as a kid, so I would not feel too guilty.
