John takes one look at Dean and regrets being away so long this time. Dean wearily nods his head towards the bedroom where his little brother is languishing in bed. He's done everything he could think of but he's only 13 and he's been up three nights solid with Sammy.

Sam is tossing and turning and John's surprised he hasn't worn a hole in the mattress. He's covered in spots and there are tear tracks down his face, evidence that at some point it's all been too much for him. John knows instantly what the problem is.

Sammy has chickenpox.
