The Miracle of Pox
8 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What does one do when chicken pox enters a house, especially when you want to keep the youngest member of the family healthy? Well, the Tanner family had to learn this when Stephanie comes down with the pox. Joey claims he can't get them while Jesse and Danny both assure the family they've had them. D. J. has also had them.

Unfortunately, Jesse is wrong and he does come down with them. Jesse's mom informs him that he hasn't had chicken pox. So now Danny has to either give up his job he'd been looking forward to, or find a babysitter. D. J., the only healthy person, also has plans away from the family.

Of course, Stephanie doesn't want to stay home and tries to sneak out of the house. Amazingly, everyone's feeling pretty good after the initial "I'm sick" is over. I don't know about others, but I felt bad through the entire week (and this is the first day!)
