I've never developed an immunity to Chickenpox...I've had them several times, not fun.
Every one of my kids had them twice. The first time for them they were mild. The second time was severe. The Pirate had them the second time when he was fourteen. He was so sick, I had to bring him to the ER. He got them from Poo who was having his bout the second time. When I tell folks my kids had them twice, they don't believe me. It does happen folks. They can get childhood diseases more than once.
They also had the measles. It was during a severe measles epidemic. Spike's heart was severely damaged. The whole bottom of his heart is dead. It is the reason he has had eight heart attacks.
My daughter lost her sight for four months from the measles. My youngest daughter had her kidneys damaged to the point that I was told someday she will need a transplant. And people wonder why I get so upset when they say they don't believe in immunizations for small children. The Pirate is the only one who wasn't damaged by them.
