8 weeks to go....

So i suppose i should at least try to update!

I went to the second hospital eventually to be told it was definitely shingles, the nice doctor having purposefully burst some of the sores on my head so he cound take a swab...nice

They then gave me a prescription for shingles medication which they told me to collect but not to take until they had phoned as they werent sure i could have it being pregnant....

They eventually confirmed i could take them later on that night which was a relief, immediatley replaced by the worry that i had been given an appointment to go to yet another hospital the following day to see an eye specialist as it was near my eye and can apparently cause blindness....great!

It all turned out fine, i did have just the one sore on my eyelid but it never made it into my eyes and there was never any danger of me losing my eyesight at all, or at least thats what they told us!

3 days in 3 hopsitals and 3 weeks off work and here i am back at work and back to normal!

Well unless you count the fact that Pug has a new trick if putting limbs between ribs and/or putting pressure on my back so am thoroughly uncomfortable but not poorly!

Just to clarify for Stacie, Joshua is not my baby but a friends and yeah you saw the timeline correctly....8 weeks to go....
