Sympthy for Sagira and Not-So-Funny Friday Fotos

Our blogging friend Sagira had some sad news this week. 

Her mom Christine lost her father very suddenly.   We know they are all hurting in her family.  If you have a few minutes to spare, please stop by Sagira, Bokeh, Starr, and Harley's blog HERE and leave them some words of comfort.  We are sure they would appreciate it very much.

Meanwhile we had our own share of not-so-good news this week.  Do you remember last summer when we had this mess at our home?

That was when we were getting a new roof, and the men threw all the old "shingles" down on the ground in a big mess.  Then later they put up all the new "shingles" so we have a new roof.

Well, somehow, and we pups really don't understand this, but somehow the Momster managed to get some of those "shingles" stuck on her face.  Look at this photo, can you believe it?  Mom now has shingles!!!   BOL!!!   Guess we could say it is one of today's "unsolved mysteries".

OK, OK, OK, we know it isn't funny.  Mom has a lot of pain and she would not be happy with us for showing this photo.  But we just couldn't resist making a funny:)

The doctor thinks this all started because of all that miserable nerve trauma Mom had in her arm in November when she fell and broke it.  For some reason, it woke up the chicken pox virus in her body and this happened.  She is on some high doses of some big pills now to try to make her better.  We are hoping it doesn't get any worse, but just in case, we might not be visiting as much, depending on how she is feeling.

We hope you all have a good weekend and think SNOW!!!

I've heard shingles is not a fun thing to get. Wish I never had those chicken pox as a kid either. Feel better soon.


Sue said...

Oh no! Our Mom had shingles on her face some years ago and it was so painful and awful. her eyes swelled shut and she was in misery. We hope your Mom gets rid of them fast. have you had the shingles shot. I had mine last year and it's supposed to prevent another attack.

Boy My Vickie says that she knows some peeple who have the Chingles and that it truly is painful.

Tell your mom for us, that we are sorry she is hurting.

As for snow, we tried to send some out to everyone this week, but we see that it didn't work. Maybe, just maybe, we should have second thoughts about the confiscation of the snow machines Frankie purchased for Fiona and some of the others.

We could use one right now too.


Oh no! We're purring and wagging and praying that those nasty shingles go away fast.

We're going to go visit Sagira right now.

I hope they got the antiviral meds in time because they can stop it in its tracks.Hope your mum gets to rest up a lot because mum says she will need to as she has seen lots and lots of shingles. You all sit on mum if you have to. We send lots of love, purrs and hope it burns out quickly.. GJ xx

Jo's World said...

I had shingles (herpes zoster?) a few years ago. It was on my lower back and it was very painful. My son had a vibrating thing that fit into a chair that I used constantly and that gave me some relief. I think winter would be a better time to have them, (if there is such a thing.)

Just hope for a short visit from these baddies and wishing you well
Let us know if we can help at all.

We'll pray for a short duration!

Bummer, bad news all around! We tried commenting on your blog the other day, but it just wouldn't work for us for some unknown reason...hopefully it will work now!

My mom (Riley's Grandma) had some weird thing a year or two ago that they thought was shingles at first, but it ended up being contact dermatitis. She had a funny looking face for a while though!

Feel better soon!!

Elyse and Riley

Deborah said...

Thank you for telling us about Siagra's mother's Dad, that is so sad. I'll be sure to drop by. OMGoodness, shinkles. OUCH. I hope you are not in a lot of pain. I understand they can be very painful. Please get well soon.
You don't think you got it from one of your grandchildren do you? I get worried about that when a child is near me with the chicken pox...just a thought.
