Just when I thought things could not get any worse at our house my husband R came down with shingles.
On the day I had to be at the hospital in Columbus with one adult daughter in the morning and then go to Cincinnati to pick up her husband after his stomach surgery the day before, R gets up with a rash that had turned to blisters.
We made a quick dash 40 miles away to our family Dr. for a check up and yes my diagnosis was correct. Shingles! So armed with two medications we headed to the medical center to see our daughter, then to Cincinnati to pick up her husband and then home to collapse and hope that that's the end of our downward spiral.
I'm worn to a frazzle and so is R.
No time for writing or fretting about writing.
I do feel good knowing that I have some contest entries out (short stories and one novel) and will be working on my novel at least two days this coming week.
I have my writers meeting on Monday at Great Expectations Cafe and Book Store and look forward to that.
Have you had shingles or know anyone who has? Any tips or suggestions for ways to deal with this will be appreciated.
I promise to come up with a better topic for next time. Something very professional and writerly.
Blessings til next time.
