    Default Poor Dave...

    Not sure if its common knowledge and been shared already, but poor old Dave has contracted Chicken pox on his holiday cruise and he and Tammy have been offloaded to a hotel on the Greek mainland (from what I can make out from Tammy's face book posts) and have to stay there for 9 days until Dave can get a "fit to Travel " document.
    Then it sounds like a ferry over to Corfu for a flight home..

    And to quote Tammys last post...

    And not a decent drop of cider in sight.

    This is why I take all my holidays West of Calais.

    Get well soon, Dave.

    I think I've got immunity, as my brothers both had it when I was about 11 and my daughters both had it when they were very young. I'd offer to fly out to keep Dave company, but there's no real ale out there...

    I hope he makes a good recovery as I had the impression that it was a lot more serious in adults or am I thinking of measles? I had the disease as a child but manages to get German Measles for a second time when I was around 20.

    Yes you are right, it can turn into Shingles which is much worse.

    Get well soon Dave.

    Measles and rubella are different diseases. I had measles when I was about three - my earliest memory - and rubella (or German measles) when I was 19. Neither have anything to do with chicken pox, of course.

    Well I'm pleased to hear Dave is 'ok in himself' - that certainly wasn't the case when I had cp ~20yrs old, properly poorly.
    But what a bummer for you both, when on holiday too! Hope you're feeling better and out of quarantine soon Dave, I'd get working on the next hols asap...
