No, Denny did not get the rash until 5 days after leaving PA.
Baby Caleb has not had chicken pox. When is the vaccine normally given? I don't know for sure if he's had it.
I have spring, 1980 written on her immunization record. She would have been 2. I don't remember her case, but I'm guessing that the vaccine was not available back that far, so she must have had the chicken pox.
All of what you say makes sense. Thank you. One clarification? If my husband has had shingles, why should he get the shot? Also, if there are any complications, such as continued nerve pain, or the rash going to the ear and eye, when does that typically happen?
Thank you for your time. I feel much better now. Reassurance is often the best medicine, especially in the middle of the night. Take care of yourself in that you are important to many people, and you helped me to maybe sleep a little tonight.
