Posted on 01/28/2013 1:21:13 PM PST by SMGFan
Barbara Walters has been in the hospital for more than a week after she fell and hit her head during pre-Inauguration festivities in Washington, D.C. and now the View co-host has contracted the chickenpox.
While doctors were monitoring Walters after her fall, they noticed her fever was not subsiding and eventually determined that it was due to chickenpox, according to The Associated Press.

Gross.probly has herp II hiding away some where in the ganglia
I feel sorry for the chicken
I have heard she doesn’t een know how to drive because she has a private driver hired and is an extremely prima donna media type.
This is reflected in her attitude that she is above all the “little people”
Considering she is rumored to have bumped uglies with Fidel Castro once upon a time and then glowingly praised him, one wonders what diseases she has or is harboring.
Probably a recurrence of syphilis.
Barbara Walters was born Sept. 25, 1929. I find it extremely hard to believe that she lived all those years without contracting a childhood illness that most of us got (and everyone I know) in the era before immunizations. She lived almost 50 years before people starting getting immunized for the chicken pox.
This is just my inner sh*t detector going off, my inuition telling me that this isn’t what it seems. Maybe it is. In any case, it’s a strange report.
Maybe but she sure made up for it as an adult. I hate to think of the toxic stew of STD's that broad has floating in her veins.
What, does Baba have to testify somewhere too?
SHE ALSO SUFFERED A FALL?
Who did she piss off?
What is it with these Leftists falling and hitting their head?
I did a little more research on chicken pox and found that about 90 percent of children got the disease back before immunization, and adults do commonly get the illness ....
.... so maybe my presumption was a little rash.
Initial reports were that she got tipsy at Skippy the Echolocating Wonderbat’s inauguration party and had a bit of a fall.
So the media basically reported it that she got soused and did a faceplant.
My daughter has been exposed at least six times, by kids that had active eruptions (chicken pox parties) and has been vaccinated four times but still has no immunity to the chicken pox virus.
She may never get chicken pox but maybe when she is older who knows.
I guess the new accident now is hitting your head.
All this fallingdownhittingheads of liberal women lately!
Could it be.....alcohol?
Oh, goodness! I could have done without that mental image so close to dinnertime.
“Shingles” is the adult form of chicken pox.
The virus hides out forever in your skin nerves after you get it as a child.
Stress and sun exposure can cause it come back.
I came down with sun related shingles in my mid-50’s.
Inside my ears, inside my nose, in my throat, horrible pain in my face, it lasts for 2-3 weeks.
Severe cases like mine are unusual, but people die from shingles (spreads to internal organs), they can be blinded, they can have severe pain for months or years, especially in the face.
Yeah, yeah, OK, deep in my heart I'm laughing at Barbara Walters, too.
Sorry about that.
Brain bleach and all that.
Walters is 83. At 83 you don’t get chicken pox, you get the shingles (which I would not wish on her nor anyone as they are quite painful)
It worked? I put a pox on her house for her part in “The Spew”.
“This is just my inner sh*t detector going off, my inuition telling me that this isnt what it seems. Maybe it is. In any case, its a strange report.”
I have it on sound medical knowledge that a true case of Chicken Pox contracted at over 75 years of age will cure a lisp.
I’d guess you are correct....she has the shingles.
If we’re lucky, the chickenpox will morph into shingles in the week of two after her chickenpox begins to get better.
As a child I could not catch so much as the three day measles. Missed three days of school in twelve years.
When I was 27, my 1 year old daughter came down with chickenpox. She had maybe a dozen pox and never slowed down a bit. One week later I was down and out delirious with high fever and pox from head to toe. Forty years later she got shingles. One week later so did I. The gift that keeps on giving. When she was two, the mumps were going around. I grabbed her and we both went for mump shots. We didn’t get mumps.
If it kills Miss Wawa, it’ll be the end of telebision as we know it.
Just sitting on the same panel with Whoopi Goldberg is enough to give you all types of STD’s.
Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis.
Babwa should get some sun too. It does wonders for chicken pox.
Probably a little too much to drink.
You are correct, that can be a very nasty and painful long lasting illness in an older person. As much as I dislike Barbara Walters, I wouldnt wish this on anyone, well at least most. : )

Although I remember having the Measles as a kid, Im not sure if I ever had Chicken Pox as a kid, not even sure if it was part of my childhood immunizations, dont have those records and both my parents are deceased. But just to be on the safe side, I recently got the vaccine. People who get Shingles cannot transmit Shingles to others but they can infect a non-immunized person or a person who has never had Chicken Pox, with Chicken Pox.
FWIW, my older brother nearly died from complications of the Mumps Meningitis.
The old hag is in for a nip tuck and this is the cover story.
Hillary is scheduled next.
Her face does not need anything more unattractive on it.
Bawa wawa is a pox on humanity.
It is possible to lose immunity and catch them again late in life.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer hag.
The ‘I was dehydrated from a stomach virus, fainted and bumped my head’ excuse was already taken.
Although, actually going to the hospital does add a whole new dimension to things.
Lets see if her driver turns around and goes back to the hospital once she is discharged. And if she is wearing a visor a la Lt. Cmdr. Geordi La Forge like Hill is.
At this age, thought it is manifested as shingles.
And I care, why? Take Whoopie Cushion with you.
I got the chicken pox in my thirties. Never been sicker in my whole life. Thought I was going to die.
At her age I would say it could easily be fatal.
