Shingles are for roofs
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. We wish you a very happy and healthy holiday season. We all have many things to be thankful for and this time of year, commencing with Thursday, is a time for reflection.
Now let me briefly tell you what has transpired so far as we get into the season. My wife and I got into our car and headed north to visit children for Thanksgiving. On the way I got a splitting headache up by the temple. It got worse, but I thought “ just another cardiac event.” A day or so after our arrival I found a doctor, mine having stopped practicing, who said “you’ve got shingles. They are very painful.” No kidding sport, was my immediate reaction. My verbal response was why, how? The doctor said it was probably from my depressed immune system due to cancer plus over doing in a myriad of activities. I thought I had been so careful, but evidently not. The ‘new normal’ is far reaching and requires attention to one’s limitations. Also, if you have had chicken pox and have not had a shingles vaccination, please do it. Terry Bradshaw says it more eloquently than me, in his TV advertisement, but the message is clear—do it now.
The good thing is that I am sitting here in my sweat clothes, drinking coffee, writing this blog, maybe earning some money, and watching the grandchildren come and go with their various activities. The shingles will go. I will get a shingles vaccination in a couple of months when it is safe to do so. The experience will not be forgetful and neither will I. Lesson learned, follow directions, take action and have positive results.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
