all better, apparently...

There was some confusion this morning when I arrived at the clinic with Tyler. They seemed to think I should have visited the doctor again, so I ended up calling Misaki and passing my phone to the good people. (it really sucks not being able to use the local language effectively sometimes) Turns out they thought we should check to see if he was over his chicken pocks, already. Huh?! It hasn't even been a week yet, but anyway, to the doctor we went.

Dr. Tada's great. He's a rugby fanatic and named his clinic the Wallabies after the Australian team. A while back he brought the Wahroonga Tigers to Japan for an exchange with the local team. So he takes one look at Tyler and says, yep - he's better... can I see his bcak too?... yeah he's better. (that's my translation anyway). Ok, so he's fully recovered apparently and back to the kindergarten tomorrow.

No wonder I can't remember having it, it was nothing for Tyler. Not itchy at all, just some spots mainly on his back and tummy, and a few on his arms and legs. Nothing on his face at all really. I've heard of some kids getting them in their throat and horrible stuff like that.

Cheers mate, I've heard that it can be quite nasty the older you get.

Glad to read that Tyler has made a speedy recovery!
Do you usually go to Dr. Tada? I guess you don't really have a choice of GP...
