TMI Warning

I went to my Doctor's office this afternoon. What I had thought was a breakout of Poison Ivy or Oak turns out to be a case of Shingles. So, now I'm on a cycle of some anti-viral medicine, and I have to be careful not to expose my daughters. They can't get Shingles, but the same virus causes Chicken Pox. I do not want my seven month old to get Chicken Pox.

I owe a huge "Thank You" to my internet friends on the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Message Board (The link is on the sidebar). It was some of that gang who told me my symptoms sounded like shingles. There's no telling how long I would have waited to go to the Doctor without their advice.
