a pox

Toby’s had a bit of a rash for the last few days – it started innocuously in his diaper area so we thought it was just diaper rash, but it has stuck around and is now on his legs and a little on his torso. I don’t think it’s bothering him too much but he was saying “owie dappy” when I changed his diaper after his bath last night, but he may have just been objecting to having to lie down when he apparently had more important things to do. So Em took him to the doctor this morning to find out if we should be concerned. One of my coworkers is off this week with chicken pox, and the nurse Toby saw said that he might have it too, although it’d be mild seeing as he’s been vaccinated against it. I guess it’s good to get chicken pox when you’re young.
