But today we went to the zoo to try to combat it all...apologies for the wobbly nature of the vid.
I've got a cold, Erik is covered in mystery insect bites, and D'Arcy's step sister Neve has chicken pox (which isn't what Erik has, they've been like that for weeks now, and I have a few too....) We spent a day lying low, thinking that D'Arcy was about to break out in spots at any moment, but not so far, so perhaps he's got to wait the 10-21 day incubation period. Annoyingly, I never had chicken pox, whcih was confirmed in my blood test when I was pregnant with Erik "you ought to get vaccinated after the baby is born" my GP said. I didn't get around to it until Thursday. Apparently the vaccination is protective if you get it early enough after you've had contact with an infected person. Now my arm hurts like a bastard, I have to have another shot in 4-6 weeks to be fully covered, and I'm still likely to get it, though not as badly...blah.
Zoo was fun, but now I'm tired, and Erik didn't get enough sleep today.
Edited to add the "official" photo that the zoo took for $5, which, on top of the $10 for the experience seemed pretty good. I have cropped it for better blogging.
