    Unhappy Hubby Is Very Ill.

    Sorry i wont be around much..

    i am gona try to be in as much as possile over the next few weeks, hubby has gottin very sick, all the stress from being on the go non stop plowing, being out in the cold all the time, the holiday madness, worrying about bills and to top that off his health is poor to begin with and his immune systom is shot. He has come down with "Shingles" Docs say hes got it real bad and in the worst place his face, it is effecting his nerves, his eye, the whole left side of his face, he has lost a big patch of hair on his forhead right where the hair line starts and also most of the left eyebrow, he is in EXTREM pain and has been sick to stomach from meds, his eye is so swollen and awful looking the doc was and is very concernd for his vision so hes going to a eye specialist, there also gona monitor his hearing and watch for any paralisis as this condition can cause your face to be paralized and also great damage to eye or ear function, hes very swollen on that side of his face, neck/throat area so i have to make sure he can breath ok, his red patches/sores are so painful and EXTREMLY hot hes got ice packs on his face. POOR HUBBY!! I feel so bad theres not much i can do but make sure hes comfy and takes his meds and puts stuff on his face, we have been to the emergancy room at the hospital 2 times already then today to another doc and on friday he sees his regular doc. So just to let you all know i will try to be in as much as possible. They say this is really bad condition and can take along time to get better and he can be left with awful nerve damage that causes pain well after the sickness is better and scars from the sores. They are also worried about him getting a second bactirial inffection called Facial Celluitis so there watching for that.
    Docs say theres a shot out now that you can get to help protect you from getting this but that its only for folks over 65, i was like WTF!! Like his age aint old enough, if he would have had the shot he wouldnt have this crap its bad enough he has so many other health probs. Anyways will keep you all posted..

    Oh no! I'm really sorry to hear that. I had a friend who had shingles as a child, and the stories were really scary. Take care of yourselves and try to just take it day by day. A positive attitude always helps, even if it's only a little.
    Keep the doctors' orders in mind, but try to motivate him to get some physical activity each day. Particularly, if he's laid up on the couch or something, make sure he moves around and changes positions every few days. When I broke my leg, I sat in the same chair, turned toward the same direction, most of the day every day, for two months. It totally screwed up my lower back and hips - two years later I'm still doing physical therapy to try and correct it. I'm sure he's in enough discomfort as it is - musculoskeletal pain is the last thing you need to add to the equation.
    Best wishes,

    Sorry to hear that. I've heard stress is a big factor in setting them off - I've also heard they are contagious once someone gets them, so be careful you don't get 'em too.

    Dang girl, you keep him looked after. We'll put you all in our prayers.

    Good luck and hang in there. I remember my grandmother having that when I was young and it caused her a lot of trouble before she finally won.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope both of you manage to work something out and he is more able to relax. A colleague of mine had it 5 times. And as she aged, the frequency went up and the suffering was more. Eventually, she retired from the job and for the past few years she hadn't any relapse.
