Watching your child suffer from a sickness can be heart-wrenching for a parent. One British mom got way more than she bargained for when her 2-year-old son, Jasper, came down with the worst case of chickenpox his doctors have ever seen. Sarah, 36, called her doctor when Jasper started showing signs of the virus a week after he had scarlet fever. The receptionist told her “every mother thinks their child has bad chickenpox” and said that he wouldn’t need to see the doctor. When the toddler’s fever increased and his symptoms got worse, he was treated with antibiotics, which didn’t help him improve. That’s when Sarah decided to take him to the hospital.
