My Left Boob

In strange news (no, I'm not talking about Lance, which isn't really that strange when I think about it, in hindsight. Kinda like George Micheal. Though Lance didn't hop around in flouresent pink hot pants and where dayglo lipstick, so admittedly more on the DL than George) I have the Chicken Pox! Well, to be more accurate, Shingles. Though they are really the same thing, except with Shingles I only get the nasty rash on one single nerve and I'm ony contagious if my pustules ooze on you. Which the chances of are pretty slim since the nerve these nasty buggers have decided to occupy is right under my left breast (yes, I'm old enough and my boobs are big enough that there is an "under" section to my boob), around my ribcage and to my back. I have a stripe! Of red swollen blisters. Which is oh so pleasant when you factor in the humdity and a bra strap.

Don't worry, the doctor assured me the baby is fine. I just have to watch that I don't get Shingle juice on people who haven't had the chicken pox, so it's best to stay away from the little kiddies and those who aren't immune, especially pregnant ladies. So I guess I'll have to cancel the Soon-To-Be-Mama wrestling class I had planned.

In sadly less strange news, I am the worst friend ever, as I forgot Mrs. T's Bday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MRS. T! I could throw out excuses (birthdays should never be on Mondays...ever) but in the end, I just suck.

That's so awful! Shingles can be really, really painful. I can't imagine having to put a bra on that. I hope you get better quickly and with little itching.

Oh Nacho! This sucks. Are you in a lot of pain? How long will this last. I have 101 questions for you - so let's talk tonight. Sorry I missed your call last night - I was shopping for the favors for your shower. :-)

Please do not even think twice about my Bday - seems like most years I frantically email J for confirmation on your Bday! It's all good!

Oh No!!! I actually would have liked to rub Henry under your boob to get him a little chicken pox action before he hits school. I hope that you are able to spend as much time as possible in the AC with J bringing you ice cream and (safe, domestic ;)) brie on a silver platter. I'm sure that will be happening aaaaany day now, lol.

J, if you're reading this-get your butt to the store and get ice cream for that woman, dammit!

"Shingles" spelled backwards? "Sexy".

Take it easy- I predict tons of TLC daytime television action...the BEST!

I'll call you tonight. I, too, need details so that I can properly worry.

Ok, I've been trying to respond all day and it never would go through...something is up with the comments...

I'm not retyping it all yet again so just a quick thanks ladies! I'm doing fine. Not itchy, though it's quite sore. And I can still work, which is good, but the couch does sound nice.

Feel better! I have heard some serious horror stories about Shingles. Did you never have chicken pox as a kid?! That seems almost unfathomable.

I hope you are feeling better. I look forward to hanging out.
