    That's very unfortunate. The chicken pox is very serious as an adult and she is no spring chicken!

    I'm not her biggest fan (although at one time I was devoted to the original Good Morning America when she co hosted with Hugh Downs) but I will sent prayers and best wishes for her recovery.

    That's terrible! I hope they take good care of her.

    I'm just surprised that she never had them as a child!

    (I know it went around the schools so fast .. both my children also had the Chicken Pox as toddlers too)

    Hope she gets well soon ... I know how miserable my two were as little as they were .. can't imagine what it is like at her age ..

    I thought she was away because she took a fall and cut her face? Chicken pox? Apparently its pretty rare in people over 60. Poor thing, its miserable when kids get them, let alone as an adult.

    I am indeed sorry to hear that. That can be deadly when your older and she does qualify for that. I do hope that she pulls through. I have no doubt that she is very sick.

    I would say at least it's not the Shingles, but now she's at risk for that too. :l
    Wish her well.

    My prayers go out to her. Childhood diseases are called that because that's when you're supposed to get them. Any older and it can be Hell to pay. At her age, it's frightening.

    And this, Ladies and gentlemen, is one of the big reasons your kids need to be inoculated. It's nothing for them, but in their contagious state - you go shopping and the little old lady who uses the carriage after you has now just been given a possibly fatal dose of german measles, chicken pox, mumps....whatever.....

    I was like 6 or 7 when my Mom took me to play with my cousins. Everytime we went to my cousins I knew someone had something. I got 'innoculated' early by being exposed to and given the diseases when I was young. I missed Scarlet Fever (though I later proved immune) and Diptheria. My Dad (who had had it when he was in the military) made sure I could never get that.

    Twice!!! How unusual?!!! Did you get a light case the first time?

    When I got them I gave them to my dog. Poor dog, he caught everything I got, measles, mumps, chicken pox.

    My daughter had chicken pox twice. The first time she was tiny, and it was a very light case (I was nursing). The second was a whopper!

    Vaccinations do not guarantee that the child won't get them. If people are worried about themselves or their children getting something, *they* should take personal responsibility and get vaccinated, take precaution, etc.

    Inoculations surely do reduce the chance of illness. We, as members of a civilized society, are supposed to be good citizens and look out for the welfare of others around us and not endanger them. Knowing that your child could be responsible for the severe illness or death of people, to say nothing of the child itself, it would seem logical that children be treated for childhood diseases........and not necessarily the elderly who may not even have a clue they've been exposed.

    Sometimes people have adverse reactions to vaccines, and responsible people will restrict their contact with the public when they are ill. If I'm worried about getting a contagious (and preventable) illness, I will take precaution myself, not expect others to do it instead. It is ultimately each person's responsibility to take care of themselves, not the responsibility of others.

    And sometimes it rains fish. Because the possibility of something happening exists, does not establish the probability of the occurrence. How many boosters of vaccinations do you think people should take...just in case.....

    Parents carry responsibility as well. Ever seen what can happen to a pregnant woman who is exposed to german measles, or better yet...to the child they carry? How do we inoculate THEM?

    You don't, they take the precaution to limit their unnecessary exposure to the illness. That's the problem with the modern society. They expect everyone else to do something when it's they that should.

    When I drive, I don't expect them to drive safely or for pedestrians to use the crosswalk (even if I think they should), so I drive safely and pay extra attention to others. If I didn't and I got in an accident involving a pedestrian; would it be their fault because they chose not to use the crosswalk or mine because I chose not to pay attention? At the most, it would be solely mine, at the least it would be both, but the entire blame would not be solely their's. It's called taking personal responsibility.

    Responsible people (and parents) will limit their contact with others when they are ill, and just the same, will limit their contact with others when they have reason to fear illness (such as if they are pregnant). An irresponsible person will not care either way and will place the blame on others when they are (at least) partially responsible as well because they expected others to take precaution instead of taking it themselves.

    People should not place all of the blame on others for something *they* could have prevented.
