 My poor dh found out yesterday that he has shingles. The doctor told it was the worse case he has seen in a long time.

I am having to keep our DD away from him, because he can cause her to get chicken pox, and I am having to sleep in DD's room with her because I am not suppose to be around him while being pregnant. I am not sure what can happen but everyone keeps saying to stay away from him until he heals.

So please keep us all in your prayers.

If I am remembering correctly (talk to your doctor of course) shingles is the adult version of chicken pox.  That is why it is so important to expose your children to it when they are little.  It pales in comparison to the adult mess which can actually be dangerous.  I do know that if you have not had it and you are exposed to it while pregnant, it can (again, check with your doctor) cause so much damage it can even kill the unborn child.  If you have had them, your immunity should protect the baby.

Chicken pox will not kill your DD...in fact it's better that she get them now instead of having a vaccine for a non-fatal childhood illness and NEVER be fully immune to them. It increases her risk of getting shingles when she is an adult. As for you...as long as you've had chicken pox as a child, you chould be just fine. :)

At least this is what I was told by a dr. 7 years ago when my ex had shingles and I had a newborn. We're fine all these years later. :)
