Pox Day 2

More pox

Carolyn reports that Max seemed pretty itchy today, but that he wasn't otherwise in obvious distress. He had more blemishes Wednesday morning than he went to bed with Tuesday night, but when he went to bed tonight he didn't seem to have accumulated that many more during the day.

Some of Max's therapists work with children with compromised immune systems and so are steering clear. Max used his unexpected vacation from speech therapy to eat a cracker. Well, I'm exaggerating slightly, but he used his new teeth to gnaw on a baby num-num. Reports indicate that it's not clear if any went down his throat, but that he smeared it all over his face. Quite a milestone.
