Arthroscopy : You did not put your age, but if you are reasonably young and healthy, arthroscopic surgery for your meniscal tear would typically be recommended to avoid further damage. I would discuss with an orthopedic surgeon.

How did my child catch chicken pox?

Chickenpox: Chickenpox is caused by a virus called varicella zoster. The virus is passed through oral and nasal secretions and close contact of unprotected individuals. If your child is immunized and becomes ill with chickenpox chances are the disease will be very mild. The better immunization rates with our children create protection for all our kids. Currently the vaccine is given at ages 1 and 4 years.

Be careful: It is common to feel somewhat light headed after donating blood. Everyone reacts differently, but by donating you are briefly compromising your own circulatory effectiveness for a short period of time. It rebounds very quickly.
