Not Dead...

Just too ill to type...shingles are now in my mouth and throat and I'm extremely fatigued. My throat is sore and swallowing feels "funny" as well as I've developed an ear ache in my right ear.

Dr. SWWNBN suggested I go to an ER or come to see her tomorrow...I'm opting for the tomorrow approach unless something gets worse or my eye starts to hurt. I considered going to the ER in the middle of the night, but since I was pretty sure I wasn't dying, I just continued to manage at home...and as I told Dr. SWWNBN, "wishing I were dying doesn't count"...

Back to bed...

I am so glad right now I did no take up my Drs. suggestion to go on Novontrone. Novontrone AND Solumedrol? Your MS symptoms must have been pretty bad. ERs...ugh. Hang in there, we are all rooting for you. The MS doc seems a bit cavalier...sigh. Me thinks she doth protest too much.

Try it. Your throat will not feel as sore and the Lidocaine swish is a gem.

Feel better soon,

Oh dear. I just want to bring over chicken soup and get in bed with you but I'm too tired too.

Now, now, this is about Brain Cheese, not baseball. That said, next year the Mariners will kick both your sorry, dusty, butts!
Oh dear, see, Linda, how they drag me in? I don't even LIKE baseball...so boring...rather watch golf. ARFGHJ--CHOO! (Im gonna get it now) Stay in bed, this too shall pass. Look how many hits YOU get and you are down...but not out! We all miss you.

Have myelin? said...

If you don't get better I'm going to have to drag my sorry ass out of my sick bed and join you and your devil cat in YOUR bed when hubby starts his Seattle project.

Now aren't you scared?

alls i know is avoid the A&E (Brits term for ER) at all costs, every time I go there I end up worse off then I started after picking up whatever infections are flying around that room!
