Measles/Chicken Pox exposure - FML
So, I have a weird issue that I have no immunity to Measles, Chicken Pox, or Rubella. I've had vaccines multiple times but they don't stick. I've been to two of the best immunologists in Ontario and also had a complete genetic panel done by Sick Kids hospital and my body just doesn't build the immunoglobulins to make me immune to them.
I knew getting pregnant I would have to be careful and steer clear of anyone who might be ill with these items. But generally exposure to this things is very rare. I don't know anyone who has had either measles or rubella ever and I haven't know anyone to get chicken pox in 20+ years.
Well guess what? My co-worker just got back from vacation and he was just sent home with a mysterious rash. He already took allergy meds and it wasn't going down so he's off to the doctor. My co-worker mentioned something about him not ever having had Chicken Pox before. But there's also a measles outbreak in a city 2.5 hours to the east of here (what if he has family there and was visiting?)
I'm freaking a bit right now. I will call the midwife shortly as I know exposure to either can be really bad. But I also know there's not a lot I can do or say until we know what he has. He wasn't near my desk this morning but we share an office area and doors and kitchen so who knows what he touched that I may have touched!
What are the chances!! Seriously!! FML!
