    That is definitely a shame. My younger sister had a very very light case of shingles when she was pretty young (she still is lol.) Best of luck as you pull through this tough time. My thoughts will be with you and your family, sickness is never fun.

    Hi Tracey

    I'm so sorry to hear about your hubby. I have had shingles on my face as well (last year). I had blisters under my eye and had to go the eye dr. and all that. I was lucky that it was in the lower quadrant that usually doesn't get into the eye. But...shingles suck. Occasionally I have a little facial neuralgia as a reminder. I didn't have it as bad as your husband does. I really hope he gets past all this.

    Shingles are contagious only if you have not had chicken pox. If you get it, you will get chicken pox, not shingles. If you have had chicken pox, you cannot catch shingles. If you have had chicken pox, you always have the potential to develop shingles. Chicken pox/shingles are one of numerous skin afflictions in the Herpes family that follow nerve paths.

    Thats right you can not catch this unless you have never had chicken pox nor the vac against it. Thanks tons everyone for the prayers and well wishes. I finaly have a min to let everyone know whats going on, between all the meds and me making sure hubby washes the sores with antibactireal soap and baking soda, i also make sure he keeps ice cold viniger/water soaked washcloth on his face where the swelling is it has helped tramendously!! The meds are working, tonight for the first time in a week he has finaly been able to crack open his eye and look at me, hes soooooooooooo worried bout the eyebrow/hair loss i keep telling him, me and Cassie are gona draw little hairs there with a eyebrow pencil.. LOL!! He looks like i beat the crap outa him with a baseball bat and then torched his skin in areas on his face. I think hes tierd of being in bed and not being out and about like he normaly is, i think he wants to be out playin in the snow. He says where the hairs were pertaining to his eyebrow and his hair line/top front and where his side burns are that it feels like a million needles poking him and the heat/pain is just awful, no new red spots have poped up which is a good thing. Im just glad the meds are working. I would never wish this awful sickness upon anyone and for all of you that have gone thru this i FEEL FOR YOU BIG TIME. I know the docs state that once you get shingles you have the chance to have more outbreaks as you age or are under real bad stress.

    PlantAKiss, HUGS TO YOU!!! He has spots on top his eye lid, corner of lid and under his eye lid as well as the eyebrow, forhead hair line and up into the hair, side burn, cheek, small one on chin, by his nose and i have looked and looked and thats it for now its only on the left side, his lympth nodes swelled on the side of his neck/face and all the way to just under his side burn. He has many health issues thats why we have such a concern for him right now he has breathing probs/emphazima-SP?, spots on his brain, degeneritive disc's/spine probs, arthritis/complete numbness of hands and fingers at times and no he dont have carpule tunnel as he already had that surgery in both hands. Also was diagnosed with the beginings of Parkinsons-SP? So its been a long haul for me and its a daily rigimen with him. I LOVE HIM DEARLY! Hes my heart and soul.. I have been carring for him and Cassie thru tragedy after tragedy, i think Cassie alone took the worst toll on all of us and to think i know hes just stressing all the time over her as she still has to worry bout the day thats surely to come we are just thankful to god thats shes with us today and is still going strong after all that shes been thru and that her knowing her brain tumor is there and will never go away. One of these days i will find the time to take care of myself as im the sole core strength in this family that keeps us going and keeps us together no matter what happens theres always hope, theres always tomarrow..

    THANKS EVERYONE for everything and i will keep you all posted.

    May you all have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
