    Or, he could own his sickness, like Chris's illness.  Chris would not like anyone else to have his/her certain sickness.
    Another thought is to drop the "I" in  "IS," add an "E," attaching it to Chris.
    If you try to make that work, Chrises sickness is not something you would like to catch because it is improper English. 

    Would putting the ' on the outside of "Chris" make "Chris' sickness correct?

    We are not amazed. Here is a puppy on an escalator.



    BTW don't take your dog on an escalator. It tends to tear the claws out and
    it's very tacky to bleed on the machinery.
