Updating and another giveaway at home

Good morning, friends. Things here are going just as expected with Lucas. New spots popping up everyday, the mild fever, and the itching getting more and more intense. I tried the oatmeal compresses Maebius and Kris suggested, but somehow it didn't make any difference, unfortunately. We keep bathing him with potassium permanganate on a big basin and putting on an ointment over the spots to help drying them, besides the antiallergic syrup. There's nothing else to do, I guess. I'm just exhausted of being awaken during the nights to watch him in his sleep - that's when he tries most to scratch himself without noticing. But everything is part of life with a little child, and I know in due time this stupid thing will be over, and he'll be the electric pinguim again, chasing Baruck and making us laugh with his fun remarks.
On a brighter note, yesterday arrived the gorgeous ceramic pot with lavender candle from Mad Hatter's Pottery I got at Mrs. B.'s Halloween giveaway (don't forget tomorrow it's the last day of the fun! If you didn't win anyhting yet, don't miss this last chance!!). The photo can't show how gorgeous this piece is. I'm very honoured to have won it, and already displayed it on my altar - I'll will lit it tomorrow at my Beltane ritual (a simple one due to you-know-what). It'll be enjoyed in good health and wisdom, as Candice, its creatix, well said.
Hope you all have a great day! Thank you so much for the sweet words of good wishes for Lucas, they're precious.

That looks lovely - enjoy!

I know it's going to seem like a lifetime, but the spots will ease and Lucas will feel better soon. Maybe then you'll start to feel better, too!

Hugs to you both!

I am so very sorry to hear that Lucas is sick! And for Halloween, what a bummer. He could pretend to be the ever popular zombie if he wants and groan from his bed. Poor little guy!

Congratulations on winning! The ceramic pot is gorgeous. I just love it! Very earthy, I love that style.

Honey, hang in there, it will be better soon with the chicken pox. The virus replicates every so often ,and that's when the spots pop out more, and when they feel so bad, but then, it does have a limited cycle of this and he will soon be feeling better. Hope you get some well-deserved rest soon!
