Getting Better!

All the prayers and medication are working! Thank heavens! I was only in a little pain today but other than that I've been feeling great! My rashes are going away and my nurse told me I would be able to be around my pregnant sister and other people on Thursday. What a relief! It is so hard staying away from my sis and her boys and the rest of my family but I would NOT want them to end up getting the shingles too. What a mean and horrible disease. I have an appointment with my Doctor on the 26th for some blood work. Not too exciting. The less to do the better. Well, I will try to post some pictures Saturday when Eric and his brother's family and possibly my brother-in-law and his boys are having fun swimming. = ( I wanna go! I'll just have to be patient and wait until I am no longer contagious. Anyway, I met this really sweet woman in Costco a while back. Of course I was not wearing any hat or wig and I was wearing my purple cancer survivor shirt so she could see that I was just finishing a battle with cancer. I gave her a business card with my information on it. We have been talking a lot on the phone and are planning on getting together soon. Oh yeah, she has been battling cancer for a while now. She looks great and is a real doll! I really enjoy our conversations! And my other cancer buddy Alena is going to be coming down next week so I'll be able to see her!! YAY for Cancer Fighting Chicks! And YAY for all chicks. We don't always have the easiest life, but we are strong and unbreakable if we stick together!
