Does He Hurt and Have a Temperature?

... and the answer is a resounding, YES.

Late last week I decided to go to the doctor to have a persistent rash checked out. It seemed to be getting worse, and my self-medication of Cortisone 10 just wasn't doing the trick. Not only was the rash growing, but it actually hurt (as opposed to itching), and seemed to be blistering, rather like poison ivy.

Turns out I have Shingles (isn't that a disgusting name for something that is growing on your body?! UGH). Apparently, it's rather an adult version of Chicken Pox.

So they gave me shots of something-or-other, pills to take four times a day, and orders to wear long sleeves because it's highly contact contagious.

By Saturday the rash and blisters had almost covered by hands (my arms seem to be getting the worst of it all. It's so nice that Mother Nature chose to put them somewhere that is highly visible - not on my chest or abdomen that can be hidden. Grrr. Grrr.

So, it's fairly painful to type, and I've spent little time on line - mostly just to check email. I haven't visited any of your blogs since last week ... sorry! I will get around to them when my poor pathetic fingers are in better condition. Thanks for sticking with me during my "down" period!

I'll leave you with this Betsy Johnson chair to cheer your day. See you soon!

Now go make something beautiful!
