I came home sick today.. man, I have not had a cold like this for a long time.
Because I already had a Dr appointment, my Dr recommended some med's to help with the cold. Boy, that Sudefed stuff works great!
Oh, and the reason for the Dr visit, is my Mom has developed shingles.... and I was not sure if I had Chicken Pox at any time...
So I got Inoculated for Chicken Pox today... because they are connected...oh my!
Let me tell you, watching my Mom deal with the pain of Shingles is awful! She is a trooper, and it is a painful hard thing to deal with as it effects the nerve endings, and open sores.
Due to a slow recovery from the Shingles as well as dealing with the long recovery from her fall and hip surgery, she feels like she is getting hit from all sides.
Life changes overnight after these moments, in an elderly persons life. It sucks to see it happen.
To see a strong fairly independent person, have their choices change in a moment of time, due to a fall... the change effects everyone in the family, and especially Mom.
She is dealing with it all with a positive attitude, or at lease as positive as she can be while going through the slow recovery and rehab process.
So.. my doc als0 said for me and you: make sure you are getting enough calcium and do weight bearing exercise!
With the limited time to access the Internet, as well as the issues we are having with our on again/off again Internet, I really am sorry I have not been able to come by to say hello...but as time passes..I will come by and say hello!
(OK..lets see if this will post!)
Thanks to all of you, my friends in the land of blog...for coming on by to check in on me, and...
Happy Friday.. and have a great weekend!!
