Chickenpox Outbreak
« on: November 23, 2012, 10:54:41 AM »
This information is taken from Fox New and was originally published by the associated press in the Terre Haute Tribune Star in Terre Haute, IND on November 23, 2012.

Apparently since September there have been 84 reported cases of Chickenpox.  Originally the number was over 100 but some of the cases were redacted by the Vigo County Health Department.  This area normally only has ten cases a year.

Silly vaccinations.  Through the course of my military career I think I've had every available vaccination.  Couple that with all the preservatives I've consumed from MRE's and it's possible that I'm personally "shelf stable" and immune to everything!

Mwuahahaha!!

Yep, that's how my mother did it.

She had 5 little boys with the chicken pox all at once. Latter, she had 5 little boys with the mumps all at once.

Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain."

My three boys had mumps for three months, one side at a time :(All had chickenpox as adults caught from their children.  They are terrible for adults.
