I'm hesitant to say that things are looking up. The shingles seem to have gotten a little/lot better in the last 24 hours. They aren't gone, but they are better. They have been replaced with some muscle pain in the center of my abdomen, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that that is normal.
I've been inactive for so long though that even a little bit of activity (read: walking to a chair set up outside and sitting down) is quite exhausting. But that will get better. I would think. In time.
So anyway, just wanted to pass that info along. I apprecaite all of your prayers, I am so blessed!
