I haven’t posted this publicly, so thought I would – just to clear up any confusion.
We love our visitors and Madeleine especially loves seeing the friends that stop by, but we have to be very careful about infection. For this reason, we ask that if you have little ones and they are not fully vaccinated (i.e. following the recommended vaccination schedule) please find someone to stay with them at home or postpone your visit until you can find someone to stay with them at home.
Her chemotherapy reduces her white blood cell count, however, in addition to that, the steroid she is on makes her more prone to falling ill to infection. This includes chicken pox as well as other illnesses and rashes.
Similarly, if there is any risk that your child is sick or has been exposed to illness or infection, please stay at home until the risk has passed.
I hate to turn away visitors, because it is nice to see everyone, but as I’m sure you all understand, we just cannot risk her health right now.
Thanks for your understanding!
