Time out for shingles

It's been a rough week.  Friday night I noticed a small sore spot on my forehead.  Did all the normal week-end stuff--dinner with friends, church, congregational meeting. Monday noticed a few more spots but thought I had pink eye.  By Tuesday got the diagnosis of shingles, possibly in my eye.  Lots of meds, more doctor visits. Spent most of the week in the guest room in the dark.  Shingles vaccine, which I've had, is 51% protective, but we hope it lessens the break out. Today my eye is open, so that's progress. Thank God for adult children living near by.
