51445 Lol! Not stating the obvious Sarah, am glad for any suggestions to help! The rash is in really early stages at the moment, the blisters have literally started showing today!
The dr did say that the aciclovir should help stop any of the lingering nerve pain so am hoping that he is right!
Am trying to find all my really baggy clothes at the moment as even the lightest fabric against the rash is agony! Not fun!!
Morning! (56334 new)

51445 Hey all!
I feel like I am constantly apologising for going AWOL! So I won't this time but know that I feel bad!
Patti, have a safe trip home. Elle, enjoy awkward at the cinema! Still jealous you are seeing Wolverine :-(
Well, as I am off sick for the week (shingles, bleurgh and ouch!!) I plan to get some cross stitching and reading done! A nice restful week. Although today I have to look after my Nan as she is having a procedure done at the hospital to check if she can have and what exactly she needs in the way of open heart surgery! I am not sure how I feel about my 89 year old Nan going through a huge op like that so will be interesting to see what today's procedure shows! Anyway, they wouldn't let her home tonight without someone staying with her. I checked with the GP on Monday and there is minimal risk of the Shingles so am ok to look after her still!
Anyway, have a great day all x

Elle did you get the anti-viral potion to paint on the blisters? Can't recall the name but it is similar to Zovirex. It has to be applie..."

No just the anti viral tabs. Which you have to take 5 times a day (which is a pain in the bum! Am having to set an alarm to remind me when to take otherwise I won't fit 5 lots in in a day).
Am feeling tired today and the rash has got worse so the pain has too! Took my pain meds this morning and they knocked me out!! So may just use those at night and hopefully get a good nights sleep too :-)

51445 Hmmmm, have we all really been that healthy that the sick wing is empty!!!

Well booking in for some TLC!!! I have shingles :-(
I think everything has caught up with me. Obviously this is quite dangerous for the patients that I look after so signed off work for at least a week but I would not be surprised if it will be a bit longer!

Have constant (although not severe) pain at the moment! Is really annoying!

Sorry I have not been around much but will have more time after today so will endeavour to catch up with you all properly.

Anyway wish me luck and I'll chat to you soon xxx

51445 Hey all, hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather we are having and not being irresponsible and getting sunburnt (ahem... Like yours truly!! Oops!)

Not had the best couple of days but don't want to bring everyone down but I know some of you would want to know and I know some already do know so apologies for repeating myself!

Yesterday at approx 18.45 my Grandad lost his short battle with cancer and long one with dementia. We were all together at the cricket (which was his favourite place to be) when my Mum got the call to tell us so my Nan had us all around her when she found out.
At the end of the cricket match (which was only about an hour after we found out) all of the family and all the players and spectators from the day got called to the wicket where one of the guys (who has known Grandad for about 30years) said a few words then they had a minutes silence in his memory...... Was a very fitting tribute to him but also very hard as it was so raw!!
Anyway, family have all been together today and been going through some of his bits n bobs! He has diaries that he kept, dating back from the war which are absolutely fascinating. My Aunt is going to type them up so we can all read them, I may share some of that with you all when I have it as I know some of you will be very interested too. Some of the more recent entries had us in stitches. An entry about my cousins wedding 'wedding went off alright except for the noise' which was so Grandad!! Another entry 'Margaret (my Nan) appears to be ill again' and I can almost hear him tutting after having written it! Not the most cheerful of souls at times!

Anyway, I am rambling now so apologies again but just wanted to let you know as a lot of you helped him and my Nan when they had their flooding/sewage problem

51445 Thanks Phil and Sarah for your donation too :-) xx
Jul 04, 2013 09:22AM

51445 Aw! Thank you so much Claire and I was delighted to see us reach that amount :-)

51445 Thank you Karen, I am not sure to be honest! I think quite a while though (my friend has a just giving page for the London to Brighton bike ride he did a few weeks ago and that is still going) but please don't feel you have to! I am overwhelmed with the support! We are now £2.50 off raising £300!
Jul 03, 2013 01:07PM

51445 Thanks guys!
I thoroughly enjoyed it and we managed to complete the 5k in 46mins. To be honest I could have done it quicker but my partner in crime had not done any training and we were in it together so didn't want to leave her behind. Am still very pleased with how we did though. And with her sponsors too (which I have added as offline sponsors to the just giving page) we have so far raised £235 which I am so chuffed at! Really am pleased so a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored us :-)

Just getting ready now so will let you know how we get on
Thanks once again xxx

51445 Thank you so much Vanessa and also thanks to Elle and Pat too. Very generous. I am getting excited about doing it now :-)

51445 I answered my own question as it now has your name so thank you so much xx
Jul 02, 2013 03:01PM

51445 Thank you :-)
Were you my anonymous donation? if so a huge thank you for being the first one too :-)

51445 I have been so caught up in everything going on in my life at the moment that I have completely forgotten to beg everyone for sponsors!!
I am doing the Race for Life tomorrow (Wed 3rd July) at 7pm and plan to run as much of it as possible in memory of My Nan, Aunt and for my Grandad who is slowly losing his battle. Also will be running for all of my patients and our Vanessa who are currently fighting.
Anyway, if anyone can spare a few pennies (honestly I am not expecting loads as it is only 5km) then I would be most grateful.
Em xx
