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..
