So, I have Shingles. Yep, f*cking shingles. I can't express how terrible it feels. I woke up Wednesday with a terrible earache but the ear itself hurt too. On Thursday I woke up with terrible pains from my ear, down to my collarbone and my shoulder. A few minutes after I got out of the shower I noticed a rash on my neck. My mom had shingles so I remembered what it was like when she had it. I got into the doctor last night and my thoughts were founded. It sucks so much. I am in agonizing pain. This pain is no joke. I can't work. I can't touch Jack and if I have too I can't touch him with my right side. I also can't nurse him and I'm even afraid to pump and give him milk with the medications in my system. The doctor told me that shingles feeds on physical and emotional stress. I swear with Jack not sleeping my body is just a mess.
We celebrated Jack's Baptism last weekend and it was beautiful. Jack was a real charmer as he usually is. He just looked so sweet.
I have ben pretty disappointed with 2 of my favorite shows. First off, Revenge, anyone else think its just getting so far fetched? Next, American Horror Story, I'm just not feeling it. That freaky clown too. I'm hoping the both get better.
My baby boy is 9 months old. That means the stress of a big birthday bash is lingering. I'm going with a "Jack Frost" theme. Lots of snowmen, snowflakes, hot coco and all our favorite people!
We are FINALLY going to the pumpkin patch Sunday as long as I feel better. It's Jack's 1st time and I'm really looking forward to the hayrides and all the fall fun.
