Well It's Not Flesh Eating Bacteria After All

Keith went back to urgent care for a follow up on his eyeball yesterday, and it's not staph, which is good, but the doctor thinks it may be shingles, which isn't so good. I don't know a whole lot about shingles other than if you had chicken pox as a kid, which most of us did, you can develop shingles later in life, especially if you are under a lot of stress.

Stress? Keith being stressed out? Only every day that he goes to work!

So, he was given a prescription for more antibiotics and told to take them five, yes five times a day, on top of the antibiotics that he is already taking four times a day. But, instead of just one pill five times a day, he has to take four pills five times a day because they didn't have any pills available with 800 mg in one pill, so has to take four 200 mg pills in each dose. Each pill is huge and the bottle of pills is even huger. Giant mega bottle of pills. That he needs to carry around with him so he can take them five times a day.

Hopefully all these meds will clear everything up, since it's by his eye, it can cause some major eyesight problems, like not being able to SEE!

And, on a lighter note, here is Mimi hiding. You're doing it wrong!

And, I woke up to five emails in my inbox this morning and got all excited thinking that at least one of them had to be an etsy sale, right? But, no, just a bunch of junk, things like the bank letting me know that the bills I paid yesterday online were sent, and an email from Michaels with a coupon in it.

I spent most of the last few days retaking product photos and renewing everything in my shop and was hoping that would generate some sales, but I guess everyone else is as broke as we are at the end of the month, what with having to make the house payment and all. Oh, well...

Shingles is really painful. Ask Jim. So if he is whining or being a baby about it... he has a reason.

Oh shingles are very painful. Poor guy. I hope he gets better soon.
