Shingles, not of the roofing kind....

Well, after a relatively easy day yesterday (i.e., feeling rested and well after ALL that sleep) we went to the Cancer Treatment Center for the "easy" shot. Now, why I'm remembering this shot doesn't hurt, I don't know because yesterday it was a "stangin".

Then we discovered that I have a little case of the shingles. Damn. If it isn't one thing, it is another. So far it hasn't hurt too badly and I think we caught it on day one.

Did have more of an appetite yesterday and it was the SWEN moo goo gai pan that made the difference. That was some tasty fare!

After that, I sort of tuckered out and spent the rest of the day in bed. I'm just having to take the attitude that my body is telling me what I need to be doing, though I do know I need to be getting some more exercise.

Jelly legs could be my new name. Who knew stepping over a threshold could be so HARD????


  1. Suppose that itching was a precursor to the shingles??? After all, they are a reemergance of the chicken pox virus in us oldies...

  2. Eeeee, the shingles? What the hey!

    "Jelly legs" makes me think of the old song lyrics, "It must be jelly, 'cause jam don't shake like that." I've totally got the jelly thing a-goin' on here.

    Love you,

  3. When you're ready for some PEP, please let me know! I'm on call for ya!
